CAM
Competition Altimeter for Models

Designed for the new 200m altitude limited electric soaring format, the CAM is small, light, and easy to install.  Just plug it in between your receiver and ESC.  That's it!  The CAM automatically shuts your motor down at 200 meters or after 30 seconds per the emerging altitude limited soaring rules.  This new competition format promises to put the "soaring" back into electric sailplane contests.  Even inexpensive RTF models can compete!

The CAM has selectable cutoff altitudes of 50m, 100m and 200m, and does not require a computer to program or use.  You can easily change the cutoff right at the field.  With the CAM you can make multiple climbs to cutoff without having to land.  Great for practicing!  And, the CAM is designed, built and supported right here in the USA.
