Redbird Corvus connects your Redbird simulator to ForeFlight (more EFB connections are in the works) by providing data akin to an ADS-B receiver.
- Redbird Navigator v3.4.2 or higher
- Navigator router or other properly configured wireless network
- ForeFlight v10 or higher
- More coming soon ...
If you are purchasing a new Redbird device with Corvus as an option it will come pre-installed on your simulator. You can skip to Setup below.
If you are adding Corvus to a Redbird that has already been installed you will be connected to a member of our support team to assist you. The preferred method is to use the standard update process to download and install Corvus. After purchase, a new update will be made available to you. If this doesn't work or you'd like more hands on support, we can remotely access your device (you'll need a stable internet connection) and manually install Corvus. You can contact support at email@example.com or 512-301-0718.
Connect the iPhone/iPad to the sim's navigator wireless network. The IP address must be in the
same subnet to be auto-detected by Corvus. You can verify the IP address via the iOS Settings
app or the More > Devices > General Info screen in ForeFlight.
Corvus can detect devices on the network that are running ForeFlight version 10 or higher.
When a device is detected, it will appear in the list of devices in the Corvus app. The device
name may not appear if it did not connect to the wireless network using DHCP.
You can also manually add a device by its IP address if Corvus does not auto detect it.
Enabling a Device
Turn the device "ON" using the toggle switch on the right side of the device entry.
Corvus will begin sending data to ForeFlight as soon flight is in progress and un-paused. The
simulator will then show up in ForeFlight's list of devices (More > Devices).
Corvus will automatically connect to the default device as soon as it is detected on the network.
You can also set a specific device to be the "Default" device by clicking on the ribbon on the left
side of the device entry. In the image below, "Taylor's iPad" is flagged as the default device.
