How good the Hyperion Emeter?

I am thinking of buying a tach to measure my headspeed but since I have Hyperion ESC, I am looking at the Hyperion Emeter. Before I spend another $90 or something on this, can you share your opipion of this device - good or bad and what is the most useful function you find with this device?
Thanks
Eddie

It's a great tool, if you build motors....the tool is a must have.

The most useful feature for me is the ability to take current,voltage and RPM measurements simultaneously while recording
to a PC. (be sure to purchase the required PC cable.)

Yes, I have a hyperion esc. Because I am going to spend about $40 for a tach, I thought maybe I pay a little more and get an Emeter. I have an X400 that refuses to take off and without a tach - I am like a blind guy.

Hyperion eMeter - thoroughly recommended!

I have one (way too sophisticated and capable compared to me and it has done everything I asked of it. I hook it up between my cells, a balancer and the !2v power source, so I can see current, total voltage before and now, MAh in etc. Plus its a tacho and a heap of other things. Clever piece of gear!

If you are into electrics, whether fixed or rotary wing i would consider an e-meter or similar a must. It quickly and easily lets you measure real time volatges and current draw, as well letting you see what your battery charger is doing if you happen to have one without an LCD display. Ofcourse the e-meter has the added bonus of the tacho.

I use the Hyperion e-meter to record and store different battery/esc/motor/prop combinations for comparison. You'll need the PC interface cable to do that. I also purchased the 20amp shunt for use with my small electrics. The 20amp shunt provides another decimal point of accuracy.

You might also want to take a look at this:

Got most of the functions of the emeter, apart from programming the ESC, but has the benefit of being able to record real flight data
