Ronbo, did I read correctly, you got a 'altimeter' in your zagi ?


How much and where did you get it ?.

Should it be doing that?
Yeah, I got a Casio 'Pathfinder'. $200 for doing that. Now that I have it, I don't want to 'loose it'. (Although I've never lost a plane before...as in, "can't find it")

I'll do it one day. It sure is cool though.
I'm currently at -40 ft below sea level, it's 87.4 degrees F on my wrist and the barometer is at 29.90 inHg and falling.

Weee.

william,

i bought an altimeter watch yesterday. avocet makes the vertec II.

has max alt, barometer, accumulated alt, vertical ascent/descent rates, stop watch, etc.

120-160$ depending on where you get it. a good outdoors/hiking store or bicycle shop should carry them.

i did a 1195ft climb out today with it.... man, was it small!
i noticed on the zagi record site that ill have to beat 1500ft for max alt.

that casio at wal mart sounds like a better deal, as long as it has a max altitude feature, it should work ok.

tax refund is paying for this watch.

email me if you need more info. email in my profile.

fwiw,
Ronbo

WOW, 1200ft up, with a zagi that had to be small. Another 300ft to beat the record ? think its possible ?

Best get some buddies out there to help as spotters, maybe even with a pair of binocs.

Already got my phone# on my zagi with a 20.00$ reward for all 'pieces' returned.

i think it is possible, but it seems i just couldnt go any higher, or at least i couldnt tell....it was really small, but my orange bottom against a clear blue sky helped out alot...
