Tuning the Flytec 6030

As we have discussed previously, the 6030 will never sound like
the Connect/P1 since the sound drivers are different, much like a trumpet will
not sound like trombone. That said, you can alter some settings in the 6030 to
get its characteristics similar to the acoustic vario in the P1.

First, you will want to adjust the vario responsiveness (Menu> Pilot settings >
Vario > 0 is the slowest up to 4, the fastest. Note that this effects both the
acoustic and graphic vario. Personally I like a faster vario but I use setting 3
because the fastest setting has the least amount of filtering and is more
susceptible to false indications

Next, go to Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Climb tone threshold. This
setting is for the limit for the minimum lift value to start the vario beeping.
If you want the acoustic vario more “sensitive” then reduce the value. IMO, 8
ft/min is a good value to start with, then test and adjust according to
preference.

Next, go to Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings. The first
value adjusts the starting frequency of the actual beep (which of course gets
higher with increasing lift). In this case you can match it to the frequency in
the Connect/P1 (I like 800Hz).

The second value is modulation which is how fast does the frequency go up with
respect to increasing lift. In I understand what you wrote, you felt that the
6030 was not getting excited enough as the lift increased relative to the P1 so
you would increase the value but I would not go all the way to 9, especially for
spring flying otherwise you fooled into being excited about a 500 ft/min thermal
when it is a 1000 ft/min day.

The next setting is the frequency of the descent tone, which of course gets
lower with increasing sink (I like 700Hz).

The next setting is Dampening which smooths-out the changes in audio associated
with changes in lift, the default value is 8 which I think is good. A lower
value will reflect more accurately what the air is doing but in rough air the
beeping will sound confused. A higher value here will further smooth out the
changes frequency associated with changes lift but with too much dampening you
will no longer hear where the better parts of the lift are.

The last setting is cadence of the beeping, the higher the setting the faster
the beeps will get with increasing lift. Similar to modulation, if you increase
this value the acoustic vario will seem more excited as the climb increases.

Hope this helps.


My existing setting:

Menu> Pilot settings > Vario > 4

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Climb tone threshold> 4

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Frqcy (up arrow) > 600

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Mod > 5

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Frqcy (down arrow) >
600

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Damp > 8

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Cadence > 1

While I seriously doubt that these changes will make much of a difference,
there's no harm in trying.

New settings:

Menu> Pilot settings > Vario > 3

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Climb tone threshold> 8

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Frqcy (up arrow) > 800

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Mod > 7

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Frqcy (down arrow) >
700

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Damp > 8

Menu> Pilot settings > Acoustic vario > Sound settings > Cadence > 5

While I seriously doubt that these changes will make much of a difference,
there's no harm in trying as I rely on the sounds from the P1.
