Vario-DX is a variometer sensor and altimeter sensor for use with the Spektrum telemetry module TM1000 or telemetry capable receivers with X-BUS interface. Vario-DX supports you in looking for areas with upwind.
A variometer senses the vertical speed and uses a tone to inform the pilot of the sinking or climbing rate.
For this purpose Vario-DX is connected to the X-BUS port of the telemetry module TM1000 or to the X-BUS port of a Spektrum receiver with integrated telemetry by using the supplied X-BUS cable. Vario-DX has an excellent sensitivity because of 2 high-accuracy barometric sensors and a 32-bit microprocessor. No separate power supply for the Vario-DX is required.
The variometer sensor Vario-DX is compatible with DX6 Gen2, DX6 Gen3, DX7 Gen2, DX8 Gen2, DX9, DX10T, DX18, DX18 G2, DX18QQ, DX18T, DX20, iX12, iX20, TM1000, AR7350, AR9350, AR6600T, AR6270T, AR8010T, AR9030T. The software of following devices has limitations or doesn't work at all with variometer sonsors: DX6E*, DX6i, DX7s, DX8**, TM1100.
*DX6e is compatible but will not audibly report ascending or descending tones
**DX8 Gen1 is only compatible with altimeter functionality
