Western Robotics Chinook Optical Tachometer G2 (Yellow) (2 Blades)
It is an accurate tachometer so I'll give it credit for that. It is not a quality product at all. The disk spinning inside rattles terribly whenever the tach is tilted. It also rattles like crazy while it is spinning up to speed. It is like it is out of balance and hitting on something inside the case. Occasionally, the motor stalls and you have to switch it off and then on again to get it working. The battery is such a tight fit in the compartment that you have to pry it out with something, like a small screwdriver. For the money, it is very disappointing. I wish I had returned it when I had the chance. Stupid noisy thing, sometimes I feel like chucking it in the trash.)
