First HXr Video Tutorial Now Online

I've had some requests for video tutorials lately, so here's the first one. It was put together using raw footage from Jerry "Widget" Morris as he flew his HXr-equipped RV-8 home from Sun 'n Fun. This one shows how to use the Map Selection Tool to find information about airspace and airports. It also has some great footage of ADS-B traffic and weather radar. Keep in mind that the system only shows the weather options if you have an ADS-B or XM weather receiver onboard. Widget's airplane is equipped with a Radenna SkyRadar D2 and Trig TT31 Mode S transponder. I have another video in the works from the footage he sent me, so stay tuned for more.

Thanks again Widget for all your help!

Thanks Bill!

I posted another one this morning: Using HXr "Nearest" Functions

The end has a reference to the Approach Plate video. That one might be done by the end of the day if nobody bothers me...

I spruced up our YouTube page a bit and added more HXr videos. We now have:

Map Selection Tool
Map Nearest Functions
Selecting & Displaying Approach Plates
HXr Weather-Traffic Ridealong (Just posted 4/25)

in addition to the FLIR and Flight Director videos previously posted.

The YouTube page is now linked from the main GRT website and can be found here: If you subscribe to our channel, YouTube can send you a notice whenever we upload a new video.
