Purchasing your DIY Upgrade pack


After reading about our DIY upgrade path, you decide that it's the best method for you. You can purchase a kit of parts using the link below. Support for this path will be directed through the forum to keep the responses as quick and prompt as possible.

Once you have purchased your DIY upgrade pack, you will be requested to send your working PilotAware Classic Bridge and details of your MAC Address back to PilotAware Ltd. Once we have received and tested your Bridge to make sure it works, and receive the correct payment, your individual upgrade packs will be dispatched.

If you plan on upgrading to the Raspberry Pi at the same time, please ensure that your purchase a Raspberry Pi 3B (Not a Raspberry Pi 3B+). Our software currently doesn't support the 3B+.
