    Good to know that the Rangeman is as quick as it is at updating the altitude reading.

    I was about to complain about having yet another Rangeman thread but this is pretty cool

    That was very quick in recalculating. Very impressed. Is the Riseman that fast?

    Would be interesting to see how it works on a plane.

    Sorry, I didn't leave description. The Altimeter updates every second in the first three minutes. Then it samples according your setting. If it's set to 0'05", it samples every 5 seconds for an hour, if it's set to 2'00" it samples once every 2 minutes for 12 hours.

    O'f I'm right a plane cabine is depressurized during flight to an equivalent of the air pressure at approximately 2000 m. More interesting is when you use it on a sport plane, like a Cessna 172

    Nice video Sjors, very quick updates, I like that

    Actually it is pressurized, otherwise we wouldn't fell very well 33000 feet above earth

    Hi Cal,

    I should have mentioned that, as that is obvious true. I once was at almost 4900 meters and had to climb stairs to a next level. Not funny was an understatement...
