Your Element Speed comes with two AA alkaline batteries. Battery life in normal use should last around 30 hours. If you store your Element for long periods of time, remove the batteries to prevent corrosion. If you choose to power your Element Speed with NiMH rechargeable batteries, it is important to configure the power supply setting on the device.

Press and hold MENU, then use the arrow keys to scroll to Preferences.
Press OK.
Use the arrows to select Battery type and press OK.
Select NiMH 2.1Ah using the arrow keys. Press OK.
Press to return to the Main Setup Menu.

Note: We do not recommend using NiCad rechargeable batteries in the Element.


The Element Speed is a sensitive instrument–handle it gently. Always store it in its cloth bag when not in use, and only wipe it clean with a soft, damp cloth. Never expose the Element Speed to extreme temperatures, water, or mechanical force.


In the event your Element Speed locks up, you may perform a hard reboot by removing the batteries for 5 minutes before replacing them and restarting the device.

If exposed to water

The Element Speed is not water resistant! Exposure to water or any other liquid will cause serious damage. In case your Element gets wet, remove the batteries immediately to prevent more damage. If your Element was exposed to salt water, rinse it in warm, clean, fresh water. Dry your Element Speed thoroughly and return it to your vendor or directly to Flytec for servicing.


Flytec provides a 2-year warranty on all our flight instruments, and we encourage you to contact us via our website any time for support. After your warranty has expired we will still repair your Element Speed at a reasonable charge.
