I have been starting to look for ADS-B Out options for my Gyro, as now that I'm FINALLY able to start my build again, I'll probably need it given how crowded SoCal skies are where I live. And, being a single seat Gyro, there isn't a whole lot of places to put avionics. I had been looking at several ideas, but this just showed up on uAvionix's website - an all in one Mode S transponder, with ADS-B Out and Dual Band ADS-B In, AND it has a remote control head, so you don't necessarily have to wifi it to an iPhone/Android or tablet. the link is here if you want to see it. I think this will be a great option for smaller gyros that may need to have it. They don't have a price yet, but should be competitive with what else is out there. I'm hoping to be ready to build my panel this fall - finally starting the frame assembly, but need a few items before I get the wheels on. With luck, I'll be starting lessons next spring/summer!
