LX Navigation is one of the oldest glider navigation brands. Its founders started experimenting with glider computers way back in the 70's and the Company has been working on improving your flight performance ever since. Throughout the last 40 years or so it has been working on instruments that most pilots will have used at some time. In fact LX Navigation equipment can be found in almost any gliding club! LX Navigation equipment has always been ground–breaking. LX Navigation motto? Be the first. Be the best. Be different.
LX Navigation offers a wide range of instruments suitable for both club and competition soaring. Their systems combine two components:
First, a glider computer (LX Zeus) which is used for calculating and displaying all of the key information used by pilots. This glider computer is the brain of the operation.
The second part of the system is a variometer (Eos, Helios, and Era). Its job is to gather the information which the Zeus uses. The vario has pressure connections as well as the GPS antenna connection which is required for IGC logs.
There is a wide variety of choice for varios and for LX Zeus display sizes. All their varios are standalone devices which can be used without a glider computer for displaying basic flight parameters such as final glide information, Speed Command (SC) as well as simple navigation. Their varios also have an internal battery which means that your IGC logs do not depend on your glider's batteries.
