    I am looking for for images of various altimeters. I am especially interested in OOP models but show us this inane and rare models no one has seen.

    If you post it, please show front and back images.

    Not really that rare, but they are OOP. Here is my MAWD and Featherweight Parrot V2 with a 250G accelerometer. Alt 2.PNG Alt 1.PNG

    MAWD was my first altimeter. I loved that thing until a stuck interstage coupler doomed it to a ballistic death. But to its credit, it popped both its charges.

    I used to have a BlackSky. Nothing to show as it failed to deploy the drogue and main on a two stage. There was not much of the rocket left to recover (other than the booster). Most of it is still in the ground at Orangeburg. They came to be know as Black-Death..... I still fly Adepts ALTS2. I have one that is a bit damaged from a hard landing. They are getting a little old and I have started looking for something new.

    Current Stock
    Missile Works RRC2 - 1999
    Adept ALTS2 - 2010
    Adept ST236 (Stager) - 2001
    Signal R2 Flight Computer w/ Trust Vectoring - 2018

    Is there any way you can add a resizing option for uploading? It gives an error stating the file is too big after it uploads.
