To get started you will need your Inspire 1, your Flytrex Live 3G for Inspire 1 and the Flytrex Inspire 1 Installation Adapter. The Flytrex Inspire 1 Installation Adapter includes the small adapter itself and the two required cables that you'll need for the installation. If ordering Flytrex Live from our site you will be asked what aircraft model you use, select the Inspire 1 and our site will automatically add for you the Inspire 1 Adapter. If ordering from a local dealer make sure to include the Flytrex Inspire 1 Installation Adapter together with your Live 3G, this includes all the parts you'll need.
Start by removing the front canopy of the Inspire 1. Removing the front canopy is not within the scope of this manual, but you can find many videos online that will show you how to do it. The front canopy is the easiest part to remove and takes about a minute or two. See this video to learn how to remove the Inspire 1 front canopy. Although this video shows how to remove other parts of the canopy as well, you'll only need to remove the front part, which is the easiest part to remove.
Using a small pinching tweezers disconnect the top connector from the Inspire 1 front panel, as shown in the picture below. Disconnecting the wire requires a slight pull while pressing the connector bridge at the same time. Notice that the connector wire is positioned rather tightly so it should only go out a bit from its current position. See the following step picture for more details.
After disconnecting the top wire the connector should be releasing and facing downward, as shows in the picture below.
Take the short 10-pin wire included with the Flytrex Inspire 1 Adapter, gently bend its wire to 90 degrees at one of the ends of the connector and slide it behind the Inspire 1 connector we just disconnected and connect it to the same slot that we disconnected in earlier steps. Once positioned correctly gently push it in to place. If needed, give it another small push with two fingers from each side until hearing a click sound, this indicates that it was fully inserted. The picture below shows the result with the Flytrex Inspire 1 cable connected behind the wire we disconnected earlier.
Connect one of the sides of the long 4-pin cable included with the Inspire 1 Adapter to the adapter itself. It doesn't matter which side you connect to the adapter.
Take the Inspire 1 Adapter and connect the 10-pin slot to the Inspire 1 cable we disconnected at the very beginning. To connect it gently push the Flytrex Inspire 1 Adapter to the free connector. You can use two fingers from each side to secure the connector in to place. This needs to be connected to the 10-pin slot on the Flytrex Inspire 1 Adapter side that includes the single connector and not the side including the two connectors).
To complete the Flytrex Adapter connection take the loose end of the short 10-pin wire we connected in step 5, route it in circle around the font pole on the Inspire 1 and connect it to the last free connector on the Flytrex Inspire 1 adapter.
After connecting the last wire around the front pole, use your fingers to nicely route the wire closer to the back of the front canopy. If the wire is still a bit loose this is OK, just route it around the front pole as seen in the picture below so that the front canopy will close smoothly.
Route the long 4-pin wire that we connected in step 6 though the frame as shown in the picture below. At the bottom inner side of the frame you will see two holes, one in each side, route the wire through this hole to get the wire to the back part of the aircraft. This is where the Live 3G will be mounted. Use small piece of tape to secure the wire around the place marked in blue arrow in the picture below.
Use another small piece of high quality tape to secure the wire at the back side of the Inspire 1 as seen in the picture below.
Before mounting the Live, Register your Live with your Flytrex account if you haven't already. After mounting, the QR code containing your Live ID will be hidden making it impossible to register.
Included with your Live package you will find four 3M double sided adhesive mounting pads. Flip the Live system and place each of the four pads at each of the corners. We recommend keeping a bit larger gap from the sides of the Live box from what seen in the picture since the Inspire frame is just a bit narrower than the Live. Peal all four pads, flip the Live again and position it behind the optical flow sensor. The Live system fits perfectly to the Inspire 1 frame and the Inspire 1 case.
Connect the other side of the long 4-pin wire to the Flytrex Live data port.
Insert a SIM with data plan to your Live system. See image below showing the correct direction of the SIM. See here for more details about the required SIM card.
That's it! Your new Flytrex Live 3G will now create a range-free, real-time, GSM data connection automatically each time you go flying. Before taking off for the first time, power your Inspire and see that the Live LED turns flashing green after initialization. This indicates the real-time flight data is now streamed automatically to your Flytrex account.
