The 6020 also features an SD card slot for the storage of virtually limitless flights and waypoints, the ability to load restricted airspace, optional FLARM anti-collision and optional live tracking. There is also a simulation mode to help you learn how to use the instrument on the ground perfect for those blown out days. The moving map and final glide screens are invaluable tools for optimizing your competition flights. Dual, user-replaceable, battery banks should virtually eliminate flights being cut short due to dead batteries.
