    Which is better - Flightradar24 or Radarbox24 ?

    Which is better - Flightradar24 or Radarbox24 ?

    The answer is obvious - no prize for guessing the correct answer.

    I have pulled the Big Switch OFF to prevent AirNav Systems from STEALING my Flight Data.

    Looks like Flightradar24 has better coverage in that area :-)
    Keep up the good work and your new FR24 receiver.

    P.S don't forget you can run/connect these software(Virtual Radar Server , adsbScope and PlanePlotter) to the FR24 box.

    Using which Connector ?

    The front " Extension " or the back "Mini-USB" connector ?

    Via the device IP address and port 30003

    This is what Mike said last week. The information should really be added under the FR24 FAQ page or another page!


    USB in front will be used for extensions in the future. For example WiFi connection, second ADS-B receiver, AIS receiver, weather station, web cam.
    The free receivers provided by FR24 are controlled by FR24, and extensions will be limited to these approved by FR24.
    The receivers that will be sold on the market later, will be more open for public add-ons.

You can get local data on port 30003 from the unit through local network, by connecting on units IP address. You can also see local traffic by viewing through "radar view" when logged in to your premium account.

    The FR24 receiver that will be sold later will have more options and features.

    Radarbox receiver was developed some times back in 2005-2006 i think and nothing has changed since that. FR24 receiver was developed in late 2012.
    If you connect both beside each other the FR24 receiver should handle about 100% more frames and data than the Radarbox receiver.
    Some tests that I have seen lately shows that even a DVB-T stick handles more frames and data than the Radarbox receiver

    Mike,

    Thanks for the head-up.

    When the 2 pieces of Power Splitters I ordered arrive, I will be able to configure my antenna system for better range coverage. Only then, I can put both the FR24 and ANRB side by side - fed by the same antenna system.

    Btw, I have one of the DVB-T stick - how to convert it to receive flight data ?

    Which software to use ?

    Looking forward to see the results of the comparison!
