PerfectFlite Stratologger SL100
Ok, so I'm the luckiest rocketeer around this weekend. I've got the new PerfectFlite Stratologger SL100 to play with before it's released to everyone else. To see it in person you'll have to come the METRA launch this weekend.
So, because I don't have the Ok to release all the details or a picture, I'll just say it's a higher accuracy baro altimeter that doesn't need a mach delay!
Anyhow, mounting it was just as easy as the MWAD. The only difference is that it is about 1/4 inch shorter. you need to drill a couple more holes if you're using your MWAD board. The wiring is all the same: switch, power and 2 outputs.
There's new software that's a snap to use. It's easier then the MWAD software and it allows you to program the altimeter. This one also has a siren to help you find it! The book also says this one will report both speed and max altitude with beeps.
I'll let you know more this weekend - I'm going to use the heck out of it!
