Announcing the Pro Stick Plus!

Great. Weeks ago I wanted to buy the Pro Stick (yellow) and Filter from Amazon.de.
Stick wasn’t available so I just ordered the filter already with the intention to order the stick later when that comes available.
So I was waiting for the stick to come available. (was told supply issues in Europe)

Now that one is still not available and now this Pro Stick Plus comes out for less money.
Not happy…

Forgive me, but I’m new to this world of flight tracking…is this an alternative to the ADS-B unit from Flight aware or is it something that can be used to assist with reception?

I have the NooElec blue stick and a 1090MHz filter. How much better is this filter than the old FlightAware 1090 filter?

It replaces your current receiver, and adds an integrated filter. (you probably either have the yellow Pro Stick (which has an amplifier), or the cheaper NooElec unamplified receiver sticks)

I understand that you have been provided harware by Flightaware. The ProStick/ProStick Plus are NOT a replacement to Flightaware provided receiver (FlightFeeder).

The ProStick/ProStick Plus are required to be pluged-in into a computer (desktop/laptop/Raspberry Pi etc) to receive & process the ads-b signals. It is purchased and used by those who did NOT obtain Flightaware equipment.

I wish !!! eBay via WifiExpert is the only way I can get it … and the way the Pacific Peso (aka the Aussie dollar) is performing against the USD at the moment … :frowning:

Today’s rate: 1 US Dollar equals 1.34 Canadian Dollar

Pro Stick Plus = 20.99 US Dollar = 28.12 Canadian Dollar (Plus shipping)

Question–

Since I placed my order yesterday… Do these have the high-stability crystal?

thanks–
