We do not currently recommend skyBeacon be installed on aircraft with fuel tanks commonly referred to as tip tanks which were popular additions to some aircraft. Tip tanks or other large obstructions on the wing may negatively impact GPS performance. For guidance on fitment and installation submit a photo of your wingtip along with the year, manufacturer and model to email@example.com.
What do you mean by tip tank?
There has been some interpretation on forums of what we mean by tip tanks. The image below is the type of obstruction we are referring to:
What about integral tanks in the wingtip?
Wingtips with normal profiles are fine for skyBeacon. The integral tanks on most Piper aircraft are not a concern and should be compatible with skyBeacon.
