A rechargeable digital altimeter (for model rockets only) that
analyzes flight altitude, acceleration, top speed, flight duration and 6
other important flight statistics.
The AltimeterTwo retains the rugged design, easily-readable LCD,
small size, and rechargeability of the AltimeterOne. With the addition
of a 3-axis accelerometer and a 4X speed increase in processing speed,
it can provide a full suite of important flight statistics that can help
you analyze and improve your rocket’s performance.
As of March 2012, the Jolly Logic AltimeterTwo has been approved by the National Association of Rocketry for use in rocketry competitions.
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
Just want the basics? Here’s how to use the AltimeterTwo, in as brief a form as possible:
1. Press and release the button quickly to turn the AltimeterTwo on or off.
2. Clear and reset for the next flight by holding the button down and releasing it when “0000″ appears.
3. View detailed information from the last flight by holding the button down and releasing it when “dAtA” appears.
4. Recharge by plugging it into a USB port on a computer. Make sure a
red light appears when you plug it in; take it out after the green
