Flytec Element

The Element is perfect blend of functionality, size, weight, ruggedness, battery life ease of use, and user-friendliness.

The Flytec Element is the next evolution of the highly popular 6015 with improvements to the display, keypad, USB interface, processing power and memory, as well as overall useability.

New features like airspace avoidance and advanced competition navigation are coming soon.

The Element is truly the best all-around instrument for hang gliding and paragliding pilots that want to fly higher, further, safer and faster or simply just want to get more out of their flights.
