Any pilot who has ever wanted to add a turn and bank to an experimental aircraft panel has been put off by the complexity, weight, reliability, and price of traditional electric or vacuum units. Belite’s new product solves all these problems. It uses a solid state gyro and accelerometer; it weighs less than 2 ounces, and it attaches to any aircraft ship power system, and it allows for easy in flight calibration at the push of a button.
In comparison to all other turn and bank gauges, this unit also provides a digital indication of degrees per second in the turn. Cost is $299.95.
The LCD graphic design looks exactly like existing turn and bank gauges, so there is no learning curve for the pilot.
Also, unlike some products, the unit’s gyro will stabilize even if brought to power under aircraft upset conditions.
This Belite Radiant instrument is also compatible with 28V aircraft electrical systems. The internal power regulator has been designed to withstand transients to 60 volts.
