Easy to install. I give this 5 stars because it seems to do everything that it advertised to do. Getting this ADS-B out product certified is straight forward after you get things figured out. When I called MSP Center to see if they could see the ADS-B out signal they said that they could not see it. Yet when I asked for a performance report it came back and said there were no issues. I guess the FAAs ADS-B out system is not up and running as I would have thought it should be.
Received it in 2 days, works amazing!
Always great service and never a problem with the products I purchase and the fast shipping is a plus.
Second one I have sold and installed. This was on a Baron. Easy install, easy to setup and configure. An elegant solution.
On time. Thank you
Easy install, although my Cessna 170B needed a new ground wire run. The setup through the app was easy

Yes, the tailBeacon has an STC for the Cessna 172. The high-wing installation satisfies the FAA requirements and enables subsequent tailBeacon installations to be performed on any âsuitable aircraftâ without STC as a minor alteration. A suitable aircraft supports the installation of the tailBeacon without airframe modification.
