I now have the SkyBeacon on the left wing and the SkySensor on the right wing. Easy two wire install and all done. Works great.

UAVIONIX SKYSENSOR INTEGRATED WINGTIP ADS-B IN SYSTEM TSO

November 21, 2023

I have had the SKY-BEACON on my Piper Cherokee PA-28 for several years and have been happy with it. I always wanted to get the complimentary unit for the right wing so I could have the matching strobe and navigation light. However Uavionix has never come out with that unit. So when I learned that I could use this experimental unit in my plane if done as a minor alteration I purchased it and had it installed with a logbook entry and IA sign-off. It had to take my wing tip off because the backing plate for the old incandescent light fixture was frozen but it was not a big deal. The unit mated up with no problem and worked the first time I joined it on wifi with my I-pad. Lights and strobe worked as well. Lee U.

Didn’t fit the tip perfectly on the pa-28 but install otherwise went without a hitch.

Done as a minor alteration with IA, works very well and so much better then the old dull bulb with no strobe.

This CAN be installed on a certified aircraft if done as a minor alteration. Logbook entry and IA signoff. Works great.

I have had this Skysensor for over a year now and am frustrated that it crashes flightplan go every 5 min. when I turn on the ADS-B in . I cant tell if its the iPad, Skysensor or flightplan go which is causing the problem. I suspect that if you are not flying in the US, the ADS-B data in signal for non aircraft data is weak or non existent and causes something to fail. Seems to work fine when I fly near the US border. I have contacted uAvionix and Flightplan go, but have not been able to get the traffic display to work for more than 5 minutes at a time.

Seems like a great product for use with most portable GPS units, iPads or Android devices using WiFi ADS-B IN data information. My question is, would the WiFi signal to the cockpit be substantially hampered when installed on a low wing aircraft with aluminum wings because the units antenna is facing downward with the wing potentially blocking the signal to the cockpit, where high wing aircraft have a more line-of-sight WiFi signal to the cockpit? In any case, the skySensor does seem like a nice match to the UAvionix sky Beacon.

Great concept! Didn’t want the fuss of a portable battery powered unit. The problem is is have droop wingtips and the Skysensor antenna doesn’t allow a fit (not even with their adaptor).

Q: Does the UAvionix Skysensor ADS-B In System interface with Garmin Pilot on an android tablet?

Yes, skySensor is GDL90 and has been tested with the Garmin Pilot App on IOS and Android.

Q: What apps does it interface with?

The Skysensor transmits weather and traffic to the following APPS:
Foreflight
WingX
FltPlan Go
iFly GPS
Avare
Naviator
AvPlan
Aerovie
EasyVFR
Skydemon
FlyQ

Q: What color is the nav light on this Uavionix SkySensor unit? How do you turn on the strobe?

The nav light is green. You will have to use your strobe switch to turn on the strobe.

Q: Does the Skysensor require a strobe power supply?

No, do not connect this to any strobe power supply, as this could damage the unit.

Q: Is this acceptable for use on a certified aircraft, and can an A&P install without an IA sign off?

Yes it is a FAA TSO Nav and Strobe Light.

Q: Does the skysensor strobe function sync with the uavionix skybeacon ADSB Out wing tip strobe function so both tips can flash in sync?

The Strobes flashes on the GPS timing so they will flash in sync. However the Strobe trigger wire (yellow) does need to be connected so they can be activated.

Q: I have a experimental biplane with 12v nav lts only. Would this work and is this all I need to be compliant?

This is an ADS-B IN unit only. For ADS-B out compliancy, please see Part# 11-16531.

Q: Can you mount the Uavionix Skysensor unit inside a fiberglass wing tip if you won't to use your existing set up?

The intended design and installation is outside of the wingtip replacing the light. Any other installation would be at the discretion of the builder and operator as this is an experimental aircraft unit.

Q: I dont see Foreflight listed below as an interface app. I thought both the SkyBeacon (ADSB Out) and SkySensor (ADSB In) interfaced to Foreflight?

The skybeacon is an ADS-B OUT solution, therefore does not require to be interfaced to foreflight. The skysensor is an ADS-B IN unit that does interface to foreflight among other apps.

Q: Will this Uavionix skySensor ADSB work with my KLN94?

NO, this unit is designed to cast the ADS-B signal to a tablet running an aviation app. It does not interface with panel mounted units.
