Some time ago I was asked about a affordable way to have a warning before going into stall with a scale-plane. Since true airspeed is one of the most reliable ways to get that info i ordered some parts and started planning one, now it’s out!
Jeti Airspeed Sensor
And of course a little hardware:
Airspeed Sensor Features
- Airspeed to transmitter
- User definable units km/h or mph
- Speedrange ~20 to 225km/h or 20 to 140mph
Accuracy is simply put astonishing. I tested the sensor while driving a car on highway up to 130kmh (~80mph) and values are pinpoint what car’s GPS displayed. Values given from Airspeed Sensor are smoothed for stability but without suffering update speed.
Little more than the usual 5 to 10 bucks due the price of dual pressure sensor needed. Total is just under 25€ (or under $30) so still not expensive at all!
Tell me where?!
Go here! Enjoy!
