The AltimeterOne is a rechargeable digital altimeter that reports the peak altitude of flight on an LCD display. Its tiny size and rugged construction have helped to propel its use beyond model rockets and planes to kites, balloons, falconry, and other sports and activities.
Here are some of the more interesting ways in which the AltimeterOne has been used:
» Tethered to the leg of a hunting falcon
» On board high-altitude balloon flights
» As an on-screen altitude display in RC planes
» In science projects (click here for one example)
» In world-record attempts for high altitude kite-flying
The Jolly Logic AltimeterOne has been approved by the National Association of Rocketry for use in rocketry competitions.
