This new Scale introduced at Oshkosh Airventure 2016 is sporting a larger usable surface. With the smaller display area, it is almost tire proof. If your tire, or float obscures the display, you can still read it externally if you purchase the new Smart Remote Display. That allows this product to be either built-in or remote, whichever best fits the aircraft that is being weighed.
Power up your new scale with A/C adapter, or the external battery pack. Just bring your own AA batteries. Requires (4) that are not included. These batteries do not recharge, but last for hours.
