The clean-sheet design of the JAY by Redbird prioritized one thing: Get the pilot flying with a minimum of fuss. There are no peripherals to configure, no systems to install. Take it out of the box, plug it in and turn it on. Now say, “preflight complete.”
Going from shipping box to flying in five minutes isn’t much fun if it breaks five minutes later. That’s why the JAY shares design components with full motion simulators built by Redbird Flight Simulations, which withstand thousands of hours of abuse in flight schools around the world. The software on the JAY is the same code powering those FAA-certified machines. It’s one tough bird.
