About ADS-B In options

Stratus portable connector kit

This kit includes a connection plate and wires. With this connection, your portable Stratus ADS-B receiver gets full-time power from the aircraft's panel so you never have to charge your Stratus battery, and it uses the aircraft's external GPS and ADS-B antennas for improved reception. This kit is $150. Specify Stratus 2 or Stratus 1S/2S/3.

Stratus 3i

Stratus 3i is a remote-mounted ADS-B receiver that provides weather, traffic, GPS and backup attitude. It is wired directly to and depends on Stratus ESG to operate, so it will not work as a standalone product. Stratus 3i is $500.

The affordable, all-in-one ADS-B Out solution

For too long, ADS-B has been expensive and complicated. Not anymore. The company that revolutionized ADS-B In with the Stratus™ series of portable weather receivers has done it again. Meet Stratus ESG, the affordable, all-in-one answer for adding ADS-B Out to your panel.

All-in-one ADS-B Compliance

Many ADS-B Out avionics are incomplete, requiring you to buy multiple parts or limit your flying. Not Stratus ESG. It has everything you need to meet the 2020 FAA mandate.

  • ADS-B Out transponder meets the 2020 FAA mandate
  • 1090ES technology – no altitude or geographic limitations
  • Integrated WAAS GPS for an all-in-one solution – nothing extra to buy
  • Replacement for your Mode C transponder – upgrade your old analog transponder

Fast and Affordable Installation

It’s not enough to have affordable hardware; the right ADS-B solution has to be affordable to install as well.
  • Fits in standard transponder slots – typically 50% less to install than remote mounted models
  • All-in-one unit - no remote boxes or control heads required
  • Complete kit includes all mounting hardware and GPS antenna

Flexible ADS-B In Options

Stratus ESG can also connect to a portable ADS-B In receiver, including Stratus 2, Stratus 1S/2S, Stratus 3, Dual XGPS 170/190, and Garmin GDL 39/39 3D. This makes it a complete system, with subscription-free weather and traffic. Plus, you retain the valuable backup capability of a standalone ADS-B receiver.
  • Complete traffic picture in ForeFlight
  • Better ADS-B reception
  • Better GPS reception
  • Full-time power source
  • Works with Stratus 2, 1S, 2S, and 3 (choose install kit above)
  • Also works with Dual XGPS 170/190 and Garmin GDL 39/39 3D (requires separate kit)
If you don't have a Stratus portable, but would still like to receive ADS-B In data, there is another option. Stratus 3i is a remote-mount, non-certified ADS-B receiver that connects to Stratus ESG. While it won't work on its own (there is no internal battery or GPS receiver), it is an affordable way to add ADS-B In to your airplane. You'll see weather, traffic, GPS position and backup attitude on your iPad, all send via WiFi. Simply select Stratus 3i above ($500).

 

Stratus ESG is made in the USA and includes a 1-year warranty.

Extremely Pleased
I have been flying with the Stratus ESG for over a year now and its performance has been flawless. I check the FAA’s ADS-B Compliance Report page about once a month and every report is nearly 100% perfect. The traffic on the Foreflight screen has huge safety benefits and, being ADS-B out, the traffic reports follow me everywhere I fly. Another big plus is having my Stratus receiver permanently mounted and powered from my aircraft. The Stratus powers up with the avionics master and automatically links to my iPad running Foreflight. For me it was the perfect solution.

Pretty easy to set up. Pulled my AT150. This new tray screwed into the same holes! Easy setup to my aircraft ICAO code and passed the flight test. Couldn't have been easier.

Can i install this myself if i have an experimental certificated airplane and the repairman's certificate for my aircraft?
mike d on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. And you don't need the repairman's certificate to do any work on an Experimental Amateur Built aircraft. ANYONE can do the work (you, the owner, would decide if the person is capable). The repairman's certificate (or a licensed A&P) is only required for the yearly condition inspection, as specified in your letter of limitations.
Will Stratus ESG work with Sratux ADS-B receiver that I already own?
Larry H on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Stratus ESG is an ADS-B out transponder. The sratux is an ADS-B in receiver. They will work together, but cannot be directly connected.
Does Stratus ESG ADS-B Out Transponder - Experimental Aircraft model come with a mounting tray?
Bob E on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the ESG includes the mounting tray and GPS Antenna.
For those of us who have already made the investment in iLevel, Garmin , etc ADS-B in; are there any concerns about the Appareo out and other brand in systems working successfully independently in the same cockpit?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sportys asked me to respond, but I only have a single ADSB out unit installed. The ADSB antenna in my installation is very close to my Nav GPS antenna, about 2 inches separation, and I have no interference or GPS signal issues at all. I use an Appareo Stratus portable for ADSB in.
Will the Stratus EGS system allow operations within RVSM airspace after 2020 in an experimental jet? The jet is currently RVSM certified.
randy h on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The installation manual says 25,000 feet is the limit, but it might be worth contacting Appareo to learn why. http://www.appareo.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/600840-000037-Stratus-ESG-Installation-Instructions-Experimental.pdf
Is the 2i available only with the certified version?
Wayne P on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, that's a mistake on our end. We will add it as an option for the experimental.
Why is the certified version offered at $2495.00?
Craig S on Apr 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The certified version is $2995.00 on our website.
Does this fit in the same space as my KT-76?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The measurements are
CHARACTERISTICDIMENSION
Bezel Width6.38 inches (162 mm)
Bezel Height1.69 inches (43 mm)
Rack Width6.32 inches (160.4 mm)
Rack Height1.65 inches (42 mm)
Depth from back of bezel to end of strain relief on rack (not compensating for wire bend radius)10.75 inches (273 mm)
Why is the Stratus EGS limited to 25,000'? I have an experimental jet that is RVSM certified and would like to install the Stratus EGS system.
randy h on Apr 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: According to the information that I have there is no altitude restrictions.

The following is from manufactures web site.

ADS-B Out transponder meets the 2020 FAA mandate
1090ES technology – no altitude or geographic limitations
Integrated WAAS GPS for an all-in-one solution – nothing extra to buy
Is the ADS-B in strictly wifi, or can it be hard wired to an EFIS such as a GRT?
Terry K on Nov 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Strictly WiFi, via the Stratus 2S receiver.
What is the difference between the certified model and the experimental model?
D. A on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are the same in terms of hardware. One just comes with a TSO for certified airplanes.
Is this certified for Cessna 177 RG ?
Gene W on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For the Cessna 177 you would want the certified version: http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/stratustm-esg-ads-b-out-transponder-certified-aircraft.html

This isn't STC'd for the 177 but you can install it based on the 172 STC that exists, using the FAA's new installation memo.
