    I'm looking to buy a dual deployment altimeter. In particular, I'd love to try out a Perfect Flight Stratologger CF or RRC2+ (opinions are welcome too if you have them on those systems!) since it has such a small footprint, but I'd be interested in other systems if others have them for sale as well. Let me know if you have one you'd like to pass one along.

    Opinions on the RRC2+
    Great device. I have three and one RRC3. One of my RRC2+s was mounted in a nose cone of a fiberglass rocket that came in ballistic. The RRC2+ survived and has flown several times since. Small, straightforward and easy to use.
    I did buy one from here on the forum that was bad though, but Mr Missileworks (Jim Amos) fixed it up for me, think he actually replaced it.

    Both (Stratologger and RRC2+) are simple to use, reliable devices. If you want data (more than just reporting apogee altitude), then I suggest you choose the Stratologger, which will provide downloadable altitude vs time information, and saves that for several previous flights.

    For simple, dual deployment, you can’t go wrong with either one.

    Hey, I found my altimeters and realized I didn't have as many as I thought, so I'm going to actually hang on to this one for now. Sorry.
