More Information

 Vario / Altimeter sensor* # 8 5416

A single sensor which combines altimeter and variometer. Extremely small, light and reasonably priced, since - in comparison with conventional stand-alone varios - no separate radio link is required. The vario / altimeter fits in virtually any model fuselage.

Data such as altitude, climb rate, sink rate and maximum altitude are displayed directly on your transmitter. The audible tone indicating climb and sink can be switched on and off using a (freely assignable) switch on the transmitter (ROYALpro); if alarms are set, the audible alarm output remains active even when the tone is switched off. 

An essential instrument for glider pilots, but also for others, such as glider tug pilots. For example, an audible signal can be triggered to signal release time
