SeeHow - 918 ft (280 m)

The circuit board of this superb device measures only 20 mm x 15 mm x 4 mm (0.79" x 0.59" x 0.16") and weighs a mere 2.2g (0.08 oz.) including the power lead.

It was first fitted to my Pico-Jet, just being plugged into a spare receiver slot and stuck onto some spare Velcro at the rear of the nose compartment.  I have recorded a maximum height Above Ground Level (AGL) of 616 ft (188 m) in the Pico-Jet.

It was next fitted in the Little-Star just in front of the main pack using the PowerHow pack I made.  On 7 Sep 07 I recorded a maximum height of 918 ft (280 m) AGL (shown above on the SeeHow) in the Little-Star.
