Operating Philosophy
Flytec’s philosophy is to produce user-friendly instruments. When you turn on the
instrument the instrument will go through a self test and proceed to the Normal flight
mode. The key functions of Flytec 3040 is also based on simple principles.
The keyboard interprets two keystrock times:
1. Short press Æ. Approximate 1 second
Example: Repeatedly pressing the yellow altimeter key, switch the altimete display forward
ALTI ft. / QNH hPa / ALT. The appropriate display is signaled by indicator arrow.
2. LongpressÆ longer then 3 Second
Example: A long press on the yellow altimeter key, during altimeter in feet is displayed, will
activate the altimeter set mode in feet.

The Altimeter
4.1
How does an altimeter work?
5
A barometric altimeter calculates altitude (elevation) from the actual air pressure of the
atmosphere at a given location. Air pressure decreases with increasing elevation,
however, since air is compressible, the pressure change is exponential not linear.
Altimeters designed for aviation use the CINA (Commision International de Navigation
Aérienne) formula to derive altitude from air pressure. In this calculation the CINA–
atmosphere is used where standard atmospheric pressure at sea level is 1013.25 hPa
(Hecto-pascal) at a temperature of 15°C. Temperature also decreases with increasing
altitude and must also be considered in the altitude calculation. A constant temperature
decrease of 0.65°C per 100m ascent is also assumed in the CINA equation. Because of
these assumptions with respect to pressure and temperature a barometric aviation
altimeter only indicates the actual altitude when the weather conditions correspond to the
standard atmosphere and lapse rate. In reality the atmosphere rarely corresponds to the
CINA standards.
The weight of the atmosphere and its corresponding pressure, are appreciably affected by
air temperature. If the temperature of the atmosphere deviates from standard atmosphere,
the altitude computed with the international formula is not correct. Altitudes will be shown
lower than actual in the summer and higher than actual in the winter. A deviation of 1°C
per 1000m will result in approximately a 4m error in altitude. For example, if a pilot sets
his altimeter on a warm summer day where the air temperature is 16ºC warmer than
standard atmosphere and then changes altitude 2000m, his altimeter will show 2 x 4m (per
1000m) x 16ºC = 128m lower than actual!
To further complicate matters, the air pressure over a given location changes will change
as weather systems move across the area. In order to compensate for pressure changes
induced by changes in the weather an altimeter must be adjusted prior to each flight. This
can be done by setting the altimeter to a know elevation (e.g., Launch). Another method
of setting an altimeter is to enter the current QNH pressure value. The QNH is the
barometric pressure at a measuring station reduced to sea-level. If an altimeter was set to
the QNH at a measuring station (regardless of elevation) and then brought to sea-level it
would read zero. The QNH value is constantly updated and can be obtained from flight
service stations and can be requested from airfields over an aeronautical radio. Keep in
mind that the atmospheric pressure can change up to five millibars over the course of a
day, such as with the passage of a cold front, corresponding to a change in elevation of
more than 40 meters.

The FLYTEC 3040 is provided with a temperature sensor inside of the housing for the
temperature compensation of pressure sensors, this Ambient temperature is displayed in
the lower display when the Arrow is pointed to AMB TEMP
Notice: the temperature sensor measures the internal circuit board temperature, and not
directly the outside air temperature! The inside temperature of the housing may be higher
or lower than the ambient air temperature, especially when the instrument is exposed to
direct sunlight.
8.2
Envelope Temperature (Env Temp)
The envelope temperature is being transmitted by radio to the radio transmission unit
TT34 (Option). The TT34 radio transmission unit is being switched on automatically by an
active envelope temperature, and is being switched off automatically if the envelope is not
being used any more.
The temperature sensor transmits its data in a cycle of four seconds. During a balloon
event where you find many balloons close to each other the TT34 does not interferes with
each other. In order to avoid interferences each TT34 has an individual identity number
(ID), which is being transmitted with the radio protocol. The 3040 instruments only accepts
radio dates, which are identical with the ID-number registrated in the 3040 instrument.
Note: A received signal with an invalid ID-number is being indicated as „ID“ in the display

Temperature Transmitter FLYTEC TT34
The radio transmission unit TTT34 is operating with a 9-V battery. The temperature
transmission is switched on automatically as soon as the differential temperature between
the instrument and the envelope temperature (factory default value) is being recognized by
the TT34 unit.
.
Switch on: Differential temperature of > 15ºC or abs. > 50ºC
Switch off: Differential temperature of < 15ºC and abs. < 50ºC
The operation time fort the Alcaline-battery lasts for about 3 years and with a full operation
time of around 200 hours. We recommend, to change the battery at every 2 annual
Envelope maintenance.
9.1
Mounting TT34
The TT34 unit is mounted on the outside of the envelop. The temperature sensor must be
laid to the inner side of the envelope and must be solidly mounted in a way that he
touches the envelope tissue. Improper installation will result in incorrect temperature
readings! Temperature sensors who have no contact with the fabrics will messure a wrong
temperature. The temperature of the hot air, drops or rises inside or otside of the envelope
in a distance of only 1 cm (boundary layer) strongly! Depending on the mounting position it
can quickly result in an temperature error of 10-20 ˚C ! Note the graphic thermal boundary
layer over the balloon fabric in the appendix on page 18
The mounting must be carried out exactly according to the regulation.

10. Batteries
The 3040 unit is equipped with two independent 9V batteries, or two rechargeable 8,4 Volt
NiMh accumulators (Option).
10.1 Battery replacement
When it becomes necessary to change a battery, verify that the 3040 is switched off!
Remove only one of the spent batteries and replace with a fresh one, then remove the
other battery and replace it with a fresh one. If the power interruption is less than 30seconds the time and date will be preserved and will not need to be reset. If the above
procedure is followed there will be minimal power interruption to the CPU. If the 3040 does
not show the time/date after replacing the batteries please follow the procedure in the
section Malfunction/Resetting the Instrument.
10.2 Changeover to rechargeable battery operation
Request the FLYTEC rechargeable battery 3040 SET from your dealer (two 9 V batteries
and one charger). Connect the charger to the charging socket (5). Charge the battery.
minumum for 8 hours. During this time, both batteries are charged automatically.
IMPORTANT: After a long periods of non use, the indicated battery voltage is too high.
The Voltage will drops a minute after switching on the instrument to their actual value. We
therefore recommended to test the Batteries after about a minute in use again. The
average operating time per battery is about 30 hours.
For battery charging is also a car charger available. (Oprtion)
In case of prolonged non-use, the batteries should always be removed!
Defective batteries may damage the instrument by leaking acid!
Corrosion damage caused by defective batteries is not covered by the warranty!
11. Maintenance
This premium-quality multi function instrument is fitted with sensitive sensors which
necessitate a gentle handling of the instrument. Excessive pressure, as may be caused
by vehemently slamming the trunk lid of an automobile, must absolutely be avoided.
In the same way storage of the instrument in humid environment is to be avoided.
The optimal cleanup should be performed by use of a slightly humidified, soft drapery.
Optimal storage is ensured with the textile bag as was supplied along with the instrument.
Self-evidently this bag needs to be clean and dry. In case of malfunction it is necessary
to retrieve the batteries or accumulators for min. 2 hours from the instrument. As a result of
this time span the instrument shall perform a self-test after re-installation of the batteries /
accumulators.
If the malfunction continues to exist, please return the instrument with a short but complete
statement about the problem to your dealer or directly to FLYTEC AG. Ebenaustrasse 18
