Description

 

AltimeterThree is a flight altitude recorder that is controlled by your smartphone or tablet.

If you would like to collect and share flight data, then this is the altimeter for you. It is small enough to go almost anywhere, and it can used for almost any flying activity.

It captures your notes and observations on each flight.

You can view an interactive graph of altitude (and for certain sports, 3-axis acceleration) and produce a Microsoft Excel™ spreadsheet of flight data for further analysis.

If GPS is enabled on your phone, the location of each flight is saved, and can be viewed on a map.

Integration with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Flickr allow you to share your flights with just a tap.

AltimeterThree includes a recharging cable, and can be recharged from any USB port.

We suggest you install the app before purchasing the altimeter, to make sure your device is compatible.

Simple Instructions

Just want the basics? Here’s how to use the AltimeterThree, in as brief a form as possible:

1. Press and release the button quickly to turn the AltimeterThree 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 light appears.

Step-by-Step Tour

Here’s a detailed walk through of how to operate the AltimeterThree.

Turning It On and Off

Press the button and release it quickly to turn the AltimeterThree on and off. Even though the button is small, you don’t have to use a sharp object to press it. Just press it with the pad of your finger, and it will “click.”

Accessing the Menu

If you press the button and continue to hold it down, you will be presented with a series of choices on the screen, one after another, which you can select by letting go of the button.

Resetting for the Next Flight


If you hold down the button and let go when you see “0000″, you will clear the results of the last flight and the AltimeterThree will be ready for the next flight. On the screen, you will now see an animated “0″ like this:

After the Flight

The AltimeterThree will automatically display the apogee and top speed of each flight. The display alternates between showing each.

Detailed Flight Data

To see the additional flight statistics from the most recent flight, hold down the button and let go when you see . The flight statistics are presented one after another. You can interrupt at any time by pressing the button to exit the detailed display.

Here are the screens you will see when you select the “dAtA” option:
