Re: Tip on updating the Flytec 6030/ Brauniger IQ+

The same windows10 prolyfic driver issue also exists with the Flytec 6015 model. And, perhaps with other Flytec instruments. Running the pc processor as a virtual 'xp' or earlier windows version is a viable work around for commo with the 6015/6030 etc.

Thanks for writing up a good comprehensive review on the WW S3 155. I own an early production dacron sail S3 155 and couldn't agree more with your findings. I'm considering a new one next year for the latest refinements to the sail and airframe.

A thin layer of epoxy resin between the batten and the unitow tape;and, release coated heat shrink tubing to hold it in place for the initial curing process.
