Video: Syride SYS’Evolution Unboxed

Saturday 5 May, 2018

Syride’s new Sys’Evolution flight computer is ready, after over a year in development and a crateful of prototypes. We got our hands on one to review and here is our unboxing video:

Syride say the all-singing, all-dancing instrument is highly capable but very user-friendly. Its 6-inch easy-to-read e-ink screen has a 3D map display with airspace and waypoints, and a resistive touchscreen that can be operated with gloves. It has an inbuilt GPS chip, wi-fi, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
