All-new aluminum construction
The addition of aluminum components throughout makes for a more robust, more accurate, and more manufacturable air data boom. The V3.0 is a big step up in fit and finish, without any weight penalty - in fact, the V3.0 is even lighter than earlier versions!
Integrated Kiel probe and static port
Our new Kiel probe design is so good, we aren't going to show you the whole thing. Optimized for reliability and light weight, the precision-machined aluminum components of the Kiel probe come together effortlessly to make a precise and repeatable flight test instrument.
Redesigned aluminum vane masts
We searched for the smallest 1% linearity potentiometers on the market. Rated for 10 million rotations, they're a minuscule 13mm in diameter - meaning we were able to shrink the entire vane mast assembly.
With a stainless steel shaft and double-shielded ball bearing support, our vanes will fly true through even the longest flight test programs.
Multiple output formats
Designed to support a wide variety of flight test programs, the V3.0 Featherweight is available in 3 different versions:
- AirDAQ wireless output - effortless communication without running wires down the wing
- Wired digital output - for permanent installations requiring an integral air data computer
- Analog output - for projects that need to interface the Featherweight with an existing DAS
