Altimeter Two by Jolly Logic

  • $79.00


 

Description


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.

Simple Instructions

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 light appears.

Step-by-Step Tour

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

Turning It On and Off

Press the button and release it quickly to turn the AltimeterTwo 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 AltimeterTwo will be ready for the next flight. On the screen, you will now see an animated “0″ like this:

After the Flight

The AltimeterTwo 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:
