Dynon Launches Two New Portables
Dynon is introducing the D3 Pocket Panel and DRX Portable Dual Band ADS-B Traffic and Weather Receiver at AirVenture this year. In addition to traffic data, the DRX ADS-B In receiver can provide NEXRAD Radar, METARS, TAFs and other weather information—along with WAAS GPS position—to connected mobile devices. According to the company, the DRX is compatible with ForeFlight, FlyQ and other apps that can receive industry-standard GDL 90 format or will work with “Stratux” type devices. List price for the DRX is $395. It will be available this month.
The D3 Pocket Panel is the latest model in Dynon’s portable Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS) line. Features include improved brightness, a new touchscreen interface and new synthetic vision display. The D3 was designed to give pilots a more affordable way to “supplement their unreliable legacy instrumentation.” It displays attitude and heading information, GPS ground track and ground speed, GPS altitude and vertical speed, and more. The device comes with both suction cup and clip mounts and measures 3.5 inches by 3.23 inches. The D3 list price is $995.
Dynon will be demonstrating both products at Oshkosh next week. The company will also be holding daily forums on products and systems at the event.
