The FlightAware Pro Stick Plus improves on the revolutionary Pro Stick high-performance SDR USB dongle ADS-B/MLAT receiver by adding a built-in 1090 MHz bandpass filter. The filter, when combined with built-in self-powered amp, provides improved reception of Mode S/ADS-B signals for users in areas where filtering is beneficial. By building the filter into the dongle we are able to significantly reduce the total cost when compared with buying a Pro Stick and an external filter.
A 1090 MHz bandpass filter (whether built-in or a separate external part) is generally recommended for users in urban environments or with known high power radio transmitters nearby such as cell phone towers. Filtering is generally not recommended for users in rural environments. Filtering benefits may vary and are dependent on the installation location.
- Filter: 1,075 MHz to 1,105 MHz pass band with insertion loss of 2.3 dB; 30 dB attenuation on other frequencies
- Amp: 19 dB Integrated Amplifier which can increase your ADS-B range 20-100% more compared to dongles from other vendors which can increase range 10-20% over a Pro Stick in environments where filtering is beneficial
- Native SMA connector
- Supported by PiAware
- R820T2 RTL2832U chips

Top customer reviews
I have a primary ADS-B receiver and home brew antenna that has performed excellent for over a year. This receiver is dismal compared to that.
UPDATE: Based on other reviews of this receiver, I placed a FlightAware ADS-B filter between the receiver and the FlightAware 5db antenna. This raised the receiver sensitivity significantly, and am now seeing about 70% of the aircraft my primary receiver sees. However, this tells me the built-in filter does not work adequately, and you still need to use an external filter with this receiver. I raised my rating to three stars from one since it does seem okay with an external filter, but considering this receiver is described as already having a filter, I still consider it dubious. Maybe if you live in a very low noise area, you would be okay, but not in an urban area.
Works great, combines 3 pieces of equipment (receiver, amplifier and filter) in one package for very little cost. So there is not much else to buy.
