RADIANT Technology LLC (a Belite Company) has developed and released its first IOS App for iPhone / iPad. It is now available in the Apple App Store for $19.99.
Named “Precision Altimeter,” it provides a comprehensive set of pressure based backup instruments for any pilot, including Altimeter and Vertical Speed (VSI). Every iPhone from the 6 and up has pressure capability built in — you can take advantage with this App.
It’s also fun to play with in a car, or while hiking. It also works perfectly inside buildings and elevators, and Apple’s pressure sensor smoothly resolves to single feet increments.
An external BlueTooth sensor is optional, and opens up more capabilities like true temperature / humidity based Density Altitude. (SensorTag from Texas Instruments — $29.00 ( Part # CC2650STK).
The video is a complete demonstration of the capabilities and features of the Precision Altimeter. The video also demonstrates the continuous climb capabilities of the Chipper Experimental Aircraft.

- A compatible device must be used to search for the app, such as an iPhone 6 and up, or a recent iPad or mini.
- Search for “Precision Altimeter” on the App store while on the compatible device.
- Purchase, download, use immediately, enjoy.
- The optional SensorTag can be ordered directly from Texas Instruments for $29.00. Part # CC2650STK.
