FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

If the smart glasses are already available, the only thing that has to be purchased is the FDL (Flight Data Logger) with two related portable device’s applications. The first application is Eye4Flight that has to be installed on the smart glasses and it allows them to interact with the FDL and all its flight data. The second app is Remote4Flight that has to be installed on the portable device (smartphone or tablet) and allows the pilot both to check all the flight specifications (as the checklists and the online flight data) and to specify the desired flight plan that has to be sent to the FDL via bluetooth.

First of all, log in into your Recon website’s personal page. Then get the Eye4Flight application installed on your computer from the Recon website at the following link:

At this point, the program provided by Recon and installed on your computer, that manages all your glasses applications, will automatically install the Eye4Flight app on your device once the glasses are connected to your computer.

The FDL can properly work with the 12 V power supply and it can be installed both directly on the plane’s battery (recommended for permanent applications) and using the cigar lighter socket for temporary uses. The FDL is characterized by an internal battery that it is used only to complete the procedures when the master is switched off (i.e. before the engine’s ignition or after having switched it off).

The FDL has to be installed with its longitudinal axis corresponding to the plane’s one, in order to allow the right calibration of the IMU. For more information consult the Fast Installation Manual in the section Documents of the menu on the top.

Basically, you can use any flight planning application to obtain the desired flight plan, but not directly with E4F. What matters is to get the flight plan as .gpx format file and then upload it on your account from the pilot’s area of the HeadApp website. In this way, it will be available on your Remote4Flight application and ready to be uploaded on your glasses.

First of all, log in into your Recon website’s personal page. Then get the Eye4Flight application installed on your computer from the Recon website at the following link:
http://engage.reconinstruments.com/apps/304374c61f2895486c5d89a249133eb7a1363611
At this point, the program provided by Recon and installed on your computer, that manages all your glasses applications, will automatically install the Eye4Flight app on your device once the glasses are connected to your computer.

When you open the Eye4Flight application on your glasses, it automatically provides you the flight plan’s screen that does not allow you to receive any information about the horizon. By pressing the select buttons on your glasses, you can easily switch the screen picking the desired one.

The bluetooth requires, sometimes, little bit more time than usual to complete the connection. To verify if it is working properly, if the connection is not reached after few seconds, open the settings window and check its status: if the available option is “Forget FDL” it means that the two devices are communicating correctly. In this case, go back to the main window of E4F and wait until the connection is reached. If this is not the case, then you have to press the “Connect” option of the setting menu and choose manually the FDL from the list of the available bluetooth devices.

 

This is an Android’s bluetooth issue: it requires a code to pair the devices if the pairing procedure is started directly from the Remote4Flight app (this code does not exist actually). That happens when you try to pair the device for the first time or when the pairing between the two devices is lost for some reason. To fix this issue, open the bluetooth’s window directly from your smartphone’s/tablet’s settings page; then, scan for the available bluetooth devices and pair your smartphone/tablet with the FDL (you will notice that any code is needed now). After having paired the devices, open the Remote4Flight application and connect the FDL with the standard procedure.
