FlightScope also will give you access to the E6 connect software and FlightScope Multicam for no additional costs.

However, unfortunately, there is a catch because to access all of the great data points and features of Mevo+ you do have to purchase an additional pro pack.

Included

FS Golf App

The FS Golf is a newer and upgraded app that Flight Scope owners can use to track their data and train. It delivers users with a modern experience and has some great features.

Data Marginsa and Instant Feedback

One of the standout features of the FlightScope Mevo+ FS Golf App is its ability to provide instant feedback based on customizable data margins.

Users can set minimum and maximum values for any data parameter, allowing for targeted training and improved consistency in their golf game. This feature empowers you to refine your skills with precision, focusing on specific aspects of performance.

Customizable Trajectory View

Tailoring the user experience is key, and the FlightScope Mevo+ FS Golf App acknowledges this by offering a customizable trajectory view.

Users can personalize the display of their trajectory screen and choose their preferred performance data blocks, ensuring that the information most relevant to their game is readily available. This level of customization enhances the overall usability of the app, catering to individual preferences and playing styles.

Data and Video Combined

Effortlessly combining data and video analysis, the FlightScope Mevo+ FS Golf App takes training and review to new heights. Every swing is automatically recorded, clipped, and stored, creating a seamless archive for easy access and review.

This integration allows users to correlate their swing data with visual feedback, offering a more comprehensive understanding of their performance. The continuous video recording without interruption ensures that no moment is missed, providing a complete and detailed analysis of each swing.

FS Skill App

The FlightScope Skills app revolutionizes golf practice by offering a dynamic platform for golfers to hone their skills using mobile devices paired with a FlightScope radar unit.

Designed for both Apple and Android users, this app transforms training sessions into engaging and purposeful experiences, whether indoors or outdoors.

The app operates by presenting golfers with a sequence of virtual targets during a session, challenging them to hit shots with precision. Each shot is meticulously scored based on its proximity to the target, and the cumulative scores provide an overall performance metric for the session.

What sets FlightScope Skills apart is its full customization feature, allowing golfers to create their own targets tailored to their specific goals. Whether shaping shots, adjusting distances, or varying target sizes, users have the flexibility to design challenges that align with their unique practice objectives.

For added intensity and realism, golfers can introduce time limits and have targets pop up randomly, simulating the pressure of a real golf round. FlightScope Skills empowers users to take control of their training environment, creating a platform that mirrors the challenges faced on the course.

FlightScope Skills extends beyond the immediate training session, allowing users to upload and review their scores and data on MyFlightScope.com. This integration provides golfers with a comprehensive overview of their progress, enabling them to track real-time measured data, analyze scores and statistics, and even incorporate mental training data through FocusBand integration.

Mevo Plus Launch Monitor Course Play

The app facilitates friendly competition and collaboration, allowing users to compete, compare, and share their achievements with friends on MyFlightScope.com. Additionally, golfers can participate in global competitions, vying for a coveted spot on the MyFlightScope.com leaderboards.

This flexibility empowers users to tailor their training sessions precisely to their needs. With the PC app, users can view videos of their swing, data squares, trajectory, and impact locations all on the same screen.

Table With Averages

A unique feature of the PC app is the inclusion of a comprehensive table displaying data for every shot. This table goes beyond individual shot analysis by presenting averages and standard deviations.

Mevo Plus Outdoors
Split Screen

Enhancing the user experience, the FlightScope Mevo+ PC App introduces a split-screen feature, allowing users to view any two selected views side-by-side. This functionality simplifies the analysis process, offering a more concise and focused view of the data.

Whether comparing radar data with trajectory, examining face impact alongside radar data, or exploring other combinations, the split-screen feature provides a streamlined approach to gaining insights from multiple perspectives.

E6 Connect


The E6 Connect app, now included for both iOS and PC with the Mevo+, elevates the golf simulation experience by seamlessly integrating FlightScope performance data, ensuring a trustworthy and accurate representation of your game.

Mevo Plus Driving Range

This dynamic app not only provides an immersive virtual golf experience but also grants access to a selection of ten meticulously recreated golf courses, ranging from the iconic Bay Hill in Florida, USA, to the picturesque Oslo Golf Club in Norway. With an array of courses, including the Fantasy Course Par 3 Ocean, users can enjoy diverse playing environments.

Additionally, the app offers 17 practice ranges with various layouts and skill-challenging games, allowing golfers to practice with purpose and refine their skills in a virtual setting.

Available for Purchase

As we mentioned above, unfortunately, the standard package for the Mevo+ does not include all of the data parameters that it is capable of tracking.

Mevo+ Pro Package

The Pro Package is required to use the Mevo+ for golf simulation and skills challenges. The $799 upgrade software pack adds the following data capture points to the Mevo+’s ability:

The Bottom Line

When it comes to affordable golf simulators, the 2023 Mevo+ is truly the top pick on the market. From the accuracy of a company like Flight Scope to the many data points that can be tracked using such a small device; the Mevo+ is very impressive.

Having to purchase the additional pro package is a bit of a downside to the Mevo+ but with it, you get all of the data points that the original Flight Scope gives users for a fraction of the cost.

Setup and breakdown of the Mevo+ are a breeze and the new FS and E6 golf apps make using the device an easy and enjoyable experience. If you are looking to create an indoor home simulator this winter and want the best device on the market, this is what we recommend.
