Very interesting write up Fly Dream.... Based on your "screen name" I'm thinking you are a company man??

I cannot seem to find pricing or ordering information.... at least not for the US market. If you are trying to do some "shameless" marketing of your product, you really should include information on where it can be purchased

I did manage to google a product web site < >

Looks interesting for sure, but I'll wait to add it to the main list until some availability information is provided.

That's about $45 as of today's exchange. Let's see what the cost is once it reaches the US.

I've also bought altimeter FD in company:
After 7 days (very quick, like from Australia to Poland), I had it in my hands, I've started to using it in my model - Orion. After few tests I can say that is it very tiny, and light and does not costs much, which means that it is a very good choice. (photos are on the end of the gallery about model)

First time with the new How High. Does all I need and is small and light and cheap. I just want an easy field readout to confirm or correct my guesses. Next season I'm going to use it in my big scale ship that I can sometimes get to dissapearing elevation once off tow. It will be educational to see if what I think its elevation is is real.

Looks like HK is selling the flydream altimeter now:

At about $28 it's a steal if you can get your hands on one.
