Spartan RC - DataPod

The DataPod is a feature rich and handy sized unit that unlocks the full programming potential of a parent Spartan product (gyro, governor, flybarless system). At home the DataPod can be connected to a computer allowing to update the firmware of the parent product. At the flying field it provides easy access to configuration parameters via its on-board display thus eliminating the need for a laptop computer. 

Key features:

  • On-board graphical display and intuitive user interface provide easy access to configuration parameters at the flying field.
  • USB connectivity for updating the firmware of the parent product.
  • Small and lightweight, can be left on the helicopter during flights and removed at the end of the day.
  • Expandable functionality to accommodate future Spartan products.

Supported products:

The DataPod works with the Vortex, Quark gyro, ds760 gyro and future Spartan products. To make it easy for customers to identify compatible products we have created the "Works with DataPod" logo shown below.
