The legendary 6030 remains one of the best paragliding and hang gliding varios that can be used in comps and XCs, or for just soaring. I am selling reluctantly as has served me extremely well over the years, navigating through and helping achieve 100km XCs. Only reason for sale is that, given my advancing years, I am doing fewer comps and big XCs so do not need all the functionality. This is a great opportunity to buy an amazing vario in a world of very long lead times on new devices and other flying gear.
The 6030 works well and as specified, with rechargeable batteries holding all-day charge. See photos (more on the eBay listing – see below link) for minor scratches and scuffs to case (and missing P and S letters from GPS), but screen looks in very good shape as have always used a protective film (now removed). The back of the device has sticky back velcro for cockpit attachment and it comes with a Gin case.
Comes with original charger, but not the blue Flytec bag. Manual available on-line. I do not recall ever updating the firmware which is at v3.38s (16.1.14). I am told by Volirium (formerly Flytec) that they still support the 6030 and can fully update the firmware and communications chip (to be compatible with Windows 10 future updates) for around €80. I have never worried about having the latest firmware, as the 6030 worked perfectly well for my purposes. One owner, purchased new. RRP £810.00.
Will post insured to UK addresses only.
The 6030 is a highly sophisticated flight instrument with integrated 16 channel GPS receiver, featuring a 1/4 VGA high-res display in a very aerodynamic and sexy housing, and an airspeed sensor that boasts a huge speed range of 12-180 mph!
It has worldwide familiarity with tried and true performance, providing comprehensive navigation features and virtually unlimited flight recording with an SD card.
The battery supply is two banks of AA rechargeable batteries. The smart battery technology allows the 6030 to auto-switch to the secondary battery bank when the primary bank is exhausted and since the batteries are now user replaceable you can always substitute alkaline if you discover at launch that you forgot to charge the batteries.
Please purchase via the listing on eBay.
