Altimeter One Records Peak Altitude
Altimeter One – A rechargeable digital altimeter for trained raptors, rockets, planes, and kites that reports the peak altitude of each flight on an LCD display using a highly sensitive atmospheric pressure sensor. Its tiny size and ability to ride along make it the most versatile altimeter on the market today. A single plain bewit blank will be sent with your order to use with your new Altimeter.

*The AltimeterOne is a sensitive instrument and it is enclosed in a sturdy case. However, we do not recommend leaving this unit on a hawk while in the weathering yard. It is important to put it on the bewit up close to the leg so it is not dangling below, which would create a situation where it can be flung forward upon impact. These units are sturdy but not indestructible. *This instrument is best used in training or when the falconer knows from the weather or location his hawk may fly very high and wants to know the height. It will help the falconer learn to understand what different pitches look like also. *The unit is not currently in a waterproof case so it should not be used in inclement weather or allowed to be submerged in water. Too much water will destroy the unit. When used correctly, we warranty the unit to work and be extremely accurate.
