this thread started 3.5 years ago and surely there is a new unit available better and cheaper than the original list. Can anyone recap what the best unit to get is now? Thanks.

Has anyone gotten the FD-A Android software working? I attached the Bluetooth dongle, installed Android program and paired the BT, but when I try to download I only get timeout error on all functions (update, clear, set frequency). The dongle seems to be working OK, as I can use it to read data to my Palm software, so it seems like a software bug in the Android application? The blue light on the logger lights solid, never turns off, which indicates that the logger never starts sending data. Seems like a handshake problem to me.

Ok, I tested the software on my wife's Galaxy II (with Android4), and there the software worked OK. My Xcover has A2.3.6, and it does _not_ work (the manual claims that it works from A2.2 onwards....)

Anyone has used the Altimeter MicroSensor V4???

if so which is your experience with this device??

I have a Bixler 2 and like to push the limits in each flight flying higher and higher... my best estimate is I have reached the 1,000 feet altitude but not 100% sure...

E sailplane thermal hack
Anyone using the new Altis altitude limiter and logger??
Is used primarily for E sailplane comps,, but does give direct readout on display as well as logs. Its 8grams,, a little heavy??? Perhaps ??

Altimeter links

I'm using one... Sort of a pain to pull out to hook up to the PC.. And the graphing software is fairly rudimentary, but the data file is plain text, so you can suck it into excel to do whatever you wish

Hi folks,
greetings from germany.
I don´t know, if my post could be useful for somebody.
i use a especially for F3K planes designed altimeter.
It can be bought at and is named
Höhenmesser(that´s german for Altimeter) AltiMon F3K
It´s lightweight (incl. cable less than 2,7gr.), very thin has a good sized display...simply a good product in my opinion, because additional it has an battery warner integrated (blinking led)
Paying with Paypal is possible and shipping to the US is 3,60€ (about 5$)
Greetings from germany
PS.: Sorry for my rusty english

Will eagle tree work with 3.7 volt 1 cell lipo?

I've noticed on some sites eagle tree is specific is saying altimeter needs a 4 volt + power supply! other times it says 3 volt + power supply. Has anyone used it with a 1 cell lipo?

Well, I've ordered the eagle tree altimeter, I'll do a video review of it in my XXLITE soon.
