This versatile, easy to use altimeter audibly reports your rocket's peak altitude
and maximum velocity after flight via a sequence of beeps. Two outputs are provided
for deploying a small chute at apogee to minimize drift and a larger chute closer
to the ground to slow your rocket for a gentle touchdown. Main chute deployment
altitude is adjustable from 100 feet to 9,999 feet in 1 foot increments with the
computer interface or 100 foot increments without. Nine user-defined presets make
changing the settings in the field quick and easy.
The StratoLogger collects flight data (altitude, temperature, and battery voltage)
at a rate of 20 samples per second throughout the flight and stores them for later
download to a computer. It retains data from the most recent 31 flights (up to 9
minutes per flight) even with power removed. The optional DTU4 data transfer kit
includes software for graphing and printing a wide range of characteristics including
altitude, velocity, and more.
As its name implies, the StratoLogger is capable of recording flights of up to 100,000
foot altitude (well into the stratosphere) with industry-leading precision and accuracy.
