An invaluable tool that every RC pilot should have in their flightbox, windsocks are ok for wind direction but are a very rough guide for windspeed and let's be honest, every pilot has been caught out by guessing wind speed at some point!
This brilliantly affordable H-King digital anemometer takes all the guesswork out of the equation, nice and bright in colour and ergonomically nice to use, it also includes a clip on neck strap to stop you losing it or dropping it! The display is back-lit for those low light conditions and if you forget to turn the unit off? No problem, the auto shut down feature will look after the included battery.

Outil indispensable avant de voler et meme pendantHave found this item very useful at the flying site to determine the ACTUAL wind speed and not what the weather man predicted for the general location, see attached linkhttps://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=17800Put battery in, used once. Placed in padded transmitter box. NEVER WORKED AGAIN.
Replaced with known good battery. Turns on for half second, turns off. Press and Holed Mode Set, backlight flashes and immediately shuts off.
Go to store...buy new batteries. SAME PROBLEM.
LOW LOW LOW LOW LOW LOW QUALITY.nice, all the specs. from HK are correct and
this is really very easy to operate.
This one drains out battery in four months without use. So I cannot recommend it. They shoud add a switch to it. Accuracy is off 1-2 m/s.For months now, we have been down the field guessing at what the wind speed might be. Now we know for sure. Works really well. No brainer at the price.It is a good product, but the interface is not easy to work. A just turn on/off you need read the manual because it is not intuitive.
It spend a lot o battery, even off.order arrived in 3 days ,great service hobby king . very accurate battery included was another selling point for me . the color is very easy to see, less chance of leaving at the fieldWhile this unit seems to work well, it's a battery eater. Every time I go to use it (weeks), the battery is dead & I'm using Phillips cells that last forever in other items. It's going to get recycled & I'll look for one that I can count on!Command le dimanche 15/05/2014 vers 24h via la "Europe Warehouse". Reu le mardi 17/05/2014 en Belgique, bien emballavec d'autres composants lectroniques fragiles. Test. Je suis extrmement satisfait.
