  • SkyBeacon on AutoGyro brand gyros

    I just received my second failed ADS-B performance report from the FAA. The UAvionix support tech has told me that the SkyBeacon can't be made to work on surfaces that block the signal such as tip tanks, near large metal or liquid objects (engines, tanks), and as others have mentioned carbon fiber body panels. The support tech was very knowledgable about his product and we tried some settings adjustments. In the end, he recommended I remove the SkyBeacon as it will not work on my Calidus. FYI to others as 2020 approaches. I know others have used the SkyFYX with the Echo UAT and antenna, but the SkyBeacon is not the way to go. Ray
