Flytec Element Track

You are a paraglider or hang glider pilot who is setting out for your first cross country flights. You want to know where the wind is blowing from, and at what strength during your local joy flights. You are getting into competition flying and will soon fly your first races. You are an experienced pilot who loves simplicity and still wants to know about airspaces in your vicinity.

That makes you the pilot for whom we developed the Element Track.

Element and Element Track

The vario formerly known as "Element" is now the Element Track. The two varios are - except for the print on the casing - absolutely identical. Already with version 1.3.10, the software announces itself as "Element Track" on a classic Element.


  • Keys which are simple to operate even with gloves on
  • Route navigation for cross-country and races
  • Airspace warnings
  • Connection with every computer, without any software installation
  • Flight data is available right after landing as IGC file

More details under technical data.

Further development

The Element keeps getting better. Over the next months we will continue developing the software and adding new features. Your feedback will make a difference there. By telling us what you like and what we could improve, you help us make the Element the instrument that fully supports your joy of flight.
