Inexpensive and Effective

  • By Aaron from Algona, IA USA on Monday, June 07, 2021
  • Pros: Small/discreet, simple to connect and use
  • Cons: Doesn't work well unless near a window - especially with carbon fiber aircraft. Does *better* with aluminum aircraft. As long as it isn't surrounded by carbon/metals/etc and is near a Plexi/Lexan window; you're good.
  • Review: One must remember - this is Traffic ONLY and does not receive the full suite of ADS-B data products such as Weather. That said, I ferry a wide range of aircraft and many are Day VFR only with heavily limited instrumentation. This is a great economical solution that can pack away anywhere and offer Traffic input.

Works like a champ!

  • By Kailua Kid from Leesburg, VA on Wednesday, October 27, 2021
  • Pros: Effortless and tiny.
  • Cons: It does get a tad warm to the touch.
  • Review: Super small and super easy. I had it up and running in under a minute. I use this in aircraft that lack an ADS-B in capability -- like the Cessna Skycatcher -- so that I can see traffic in the densely congested area around DC's Leesburg Executive airport where the SFRA seemingly converges all incoming and outgoing traffic into a single mile wide corridor. Its only a matter of time until there's a mid-air there, and I don't want to be that guy. Ping helps me to avoid that tragedy in waiting.

  • Review: Works perfectly with my IFly740B. Plugged it into the USB port of the 740B, selected Ping on the 740B wifi network setting, and it was operational.

    Perfect low cost traffic awareness solution for my 61 Champ 7FC .

Pretty good!

  • By Chicken Little from Great Falls VA USA on Friday, April 15, 2022
  • Pros: Dirt simple. Works like a champ with ForeFlight. Super portable.
  • Cons: Gets hot and will sometimes stop working intermittently.
  • Review: I fly in the crowded airspace of Leesburg, VA where the SFRA forces all arriving and departing aircraft into a very narrow corridor which increases exponentially the chance of a mid-air collision. I needed this when I fly airplanes without traffic capability, and it works like a champ with my iPhone and ForeFlight. I use a cell battery pack for the Ping and wedge it between the dash and windscreen. The only issue I have noted is that the Ping does get fairly warm during operation, and can sometimes stop receiving a signal. A quick unplug and replug of the battery pack fixes it instantly.
