Quest Aerospace, Inc. Pagosa Springs, Colorado – QUEST Announces it has begun shipping the new QUEST How High Altimeter. The Quest how High is a complete self-contained, self powered instrument. This tiny light-weight (0.25 oz) unit provides peak altitude readings right at the field immediately after your flight with a range of 50 to 7000 ft. AGL. A single light-emitting diode (LED) reports altitude data through a series of flashes. It does not require the use of a computer or any additional equipment.

Just like the altimeter in a full scale aircraft, the Quest How High altimeter determines altitude by sensing tiny changes in atmospheric air pressure. It uses a state-of-the-art pressure sensor and proprietary calculation technique to provide a very high level of accuracy for such a low cost instrument.

Complete product specifications are available on the Quest website under "electronic accessories".

The QUEST How High Altimeter is $45 and is only available on the Quest website:

Looks cool. Was thinking of getting myself a Parrot or one of Perfectflite's though.

Hmm. Didn't Apogee have something on a cheap altimeter around $45 too?
