In case you’re thinking of a shiny new iPad under the tree or menorah this year — Costco has a nice sale on the base model right now. It’s $280 to Costco members, $40 off the usual price. As you may have noticed, Apple products seldom get much of a discount so $40 off is quite good. This is the 32 GB Wi-Fi only model so you’ll need to pair it with a Bluetooth GPS or an ADS-B receiver that include a GPS (for example, our Merlin now on sale for just $199). Although it’s the bottom of Apple’s line, as a new model, it’s a powerful little unit that is more than sufficient for running FlyQ both now and in the future. And, for what it’s worth, I fly with basically the same unit (I did upgrade to the 128 GB model with cellular for my needs).
