uAvionix tailBeacon X Beta Testers Wanted
 
If any Canadian RV owners are interested in beta-testing uAvionix' new tailBeacon X, which is a 1090ES transponder with diverse antennas (compliant with both US and Canadian ADS-B), sign up for the program. They're looking for more beta testers to get more flights done in a shorter time (goal is to get 100+ flights before March 1).

Tailbeacon or Skybeacon
 
Are you sure it is a Tailbeacon; I thought it was a Skybeacon?

I thought the same thing but they're currently doing it with the tailbeacon.

uAvionix tailBeacon X Beta Testers Wanted
 
I applied as well, has anybody been contacted?

I think the original COPA post had them wanting to be done by the end of February.

100%, as it's installed on the rudder, not the wingtip. :)

I thought I read somewhere I couldn't tell anyone if I were chosen as a beta tester...

I applied through COPA and heard less than nothing - had to contact them again to find out nothing. I just applied directly with uAvionix. I guess I can say that, but the beta program agreement does clearly state that you can't talk about your involvement with the test.

The testers were asked specifically if we knew of other pilots who were interested, and to let them know more testers were required. With the number of pilots I know here that are looking for an ADS-B solution, this is where I let them know. If you're interested, apply.
