Whether you are just starting out as a pilot, or an experienced pilot that prefers leisurely local flights, the Element Speed is the right instrument for you. To fly safely and relaxed, it is important to understand the state of the air around you. Of course climb and descent rate information is crucial but just as important is your speed over ground, glide ratio and the wind velocity. The Element Speed gives you this information precisely and at a glance.

Features Include
Altitude and Climb/Sink indication in unsurpassed Flytec quality
Ground speed and current glide ratio
Wind direction and speed
Distance and direction to launch
Distance and direction to the last thermal
Vario profiles
