The RiteAngle Elite is an electronically updated version of our “flap position correction system” which appears to operate exactly like our prior systems, including automatic correction for up to five (5) flap positions. A Flap Position indicator is included.
The differences are in the electronic enhancements, which are “seamless” and the operator will not know the difference, except in the much easier and non- confusing set-up procedures.
With the RiteAngle Elite system you have the advantage of having a system which was designed to the FAA guidelines for use on certified aircraft, without all the expense of tracking of parts and having it assembled by a PMA facility, and of course not having to pay for the time, effort, and work involved in getting the STC!
The RiteAngle™ Elite is a modern, up dated system that accurately determines your aircraft’s angle of attack. Easy to understand - Green Safe, Amber Caution, Red Danger. There are no computed values, the vane actually measures the relative wind.
After setting up the system remove setup module & store it in your hangar. Data down-link made for flight recorders for research or test flights. Manual dimming for “adjustment to your individual preference”. Change the airfoil, ie vortex generators etc., plug in and reset. Set up the way YOU want the system to operate.
Vane (Refer to Image):
Next time you are getting on an airliner, look in the general area below the Captains and First Officers windows, about in the middle of the fuselage, notice a vane?? I had a vane in my nearly 19 years flying for a major airline, and in business jets several years before that. If it was reliable enough for me when I was carrying over 150 passengers plus my crew it is reliable enough for our homebuilt aircraft. The same polymer vane is used with the RiteAngle™ Basic as is used on our custom designed systems which cost $3500. We have wing, fuselage and jury strut mounts. These mounts will satisfy all types of aircraft from the simple ultralight to Jets and have been in use for over 11 years.
Note: Small vane (compared to standard vane) is more streamlined and smaller as requested by owners of aircraft cruising over 200 kts. See Accessories.
The RiteAngle™ Elite system supports two displays, one “Enhanced” and one Standard display if required for a tandem aircraft. Each display is independently manually dimmed as desired.
