Flytrex Core 2 Review
Welcome to this Flytrex Core 2 Review – the Flytrex Core 2 is a relatively new product and there isn’t much information about it online. I hope this review does it full justice.
What is Flytrex Core 2? Flytrex Core 2 is a full-fledged flight tracker system. You’re probably already familiar with flight tracker systems. They are popularly called as “black boxes” and are present in every aircraft. A flight tracker system such as Flytrex Core 2 stores all flight data such as speed, temperature, altitude and distance on an internal memory or on a micro SD card.
So, once you’ve completed your flying session, you can log on to the Flyrtex.com network and look at exactly how well you have performed. Flytrex.com analyzes your flight data and makes it available to you under Mission Manager, Challenges and Unlock Badges. It tracks your flight records and analyzes the stats for your quadcopters or multirotors. Plus, you can connect with other drone fliers on the Flytrex network and compare your data with them.
Flytrex Core 2 Features:
The Flytrex Core 2 Build
The Flytrex Core 2 is small and very light. It measures just 20 mm x 26 mm and weights just 3.5 grams. It is as tiny as it gets and must be handled carefully.
The Flytrex Core 2 Internal Memory
The Flytrex Core 2 is an improvement over its predecessor, the Flytrex Core 1 because it comes with an internal memory in addition to the MicroSD. All the flight data is stored in the internal memory or into the MicroSD, whenever it is used. So, even if you were to forget putting the MicroSD into the Core 2, your flight data will still be recorded. You can copy and backup the flight data from the internal memory after the end of your mission. Follow the instructions given in the manual given by Flytrex to see how this is done.
