What would be a relatively inexpensive, easy to use accelerometer I can use in my 29mm supersonic rocket? According to RockSim, it'll reach a maximum acceleration of about 50 or 60 g's, is there an accelerometer I can get that will record that high, will fit in a 29mm tube, and will weigh under about 50grams with battery?

If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate them.
The Parrot is what I would use. It fits all of your criteria except inexpensive, but believe me, it is worth every penny. It is amazingly full featured, especially given the size.
Thanks, I'll be checking into it. I don't mind forking out a few bucks if I'll get a significant return on my investment.
