For your ultralight, experimental, homebuilt or sport aircraft!

The Stratomaster Ultra is the world's finest computerized instrument for light sport aircraft. There is nothing competitive in quality, functionality or price. The system combines all necessary flight and engine readouts in a graphical dial and graph format in an easy-to-read presentation. Because the system is software-based, it provides many user options for customization. The Stratomaster Ultra is easily adaptable to almost any engine.

Providing a multichannel EMS (Engine Monitoring System) as standard, the Ultra gives you the ability to closely monitor and to optimize engine performance. The EMS is highly configurable in true Stratomaster fashion and is therefore suitable for a wide range of engines, from small two-stokes to large four strokes. Connect just about anything you like, from Rotax to Hirth to VW to Jabiru to 2SI to Subaru, etc. You are covered!

Featured here is the rotorcraft version of the 4 Ultra models: the Ultra RL. This unit is especially for helicopters and gyroplanes, incorporating a rotor RPM tach in the display.

Ultra RL—for helicopters & gyroplanes:  same as Ultra L (below), but with aligned rotor-Engine RPM
