Digital Pitch Gauge 2 by RC Logger
This product was added to our catalog on November 6, 2012.
This is the RC Logger Digital Pitch Gauge 2. Since RC Logger introduced the revolutionary Digital Pitch Gauge which offers simplicity, high accuracy and ultra fast pitch angle measurement, the age of painful fiddling with mechanical pitch gauges has come to an end. Being the pioneer, the guys at RC Logger pushed themselves one step ahead by developing the Digital Pitch Gauge 2. This 2nd generation digital pitch gauge offers even more innovative enhancements for powerful tuning in the airfield.
The redesigned Digital Pitch Gauge 2 with patented technology is packed with all popular features including rotating display, calibration, auto power-off, plus innovative enhancements like buzzer alert for target angles, metal pin pointer for quick visual check, as well as flexible installation via inserted magnet or screw nut. All parts are packed safely in a handy and durable protection case for day-to-day use.
Pitch and Roll measurement:
The Digital Pitch Gauge 2 now offers two dimensional measurement - Pitch angle as well as Roll angle measurement. This feature allows you to adjust not only the main rotor blade, but also the tail rotor blade and swashplate with ease.
3 measure modes (Main rotor blade / Tail rotor blade / Swashplate): The Digital Pitch Gauge 2 now comes with three handy detachable mount adapters that allow you to adjust the main rotor blade, tail rotor blade and swashplate with ease. Just put the adapters in place and snap on the Pitch Gauge via the inserted magnets.
9 memory profiles to preset target angles:
Now you can pre-define your preferred target angles beforehand and save it into your Digital Pitch Gauge 2. Nine memory profiles are available for storing target measurements for 3 measurement modes in each of the profiles. During tuning, a buzzer alert will signal when the target angle is reached.
3 seconds countdown time to hold the display, set zero angle, or set target angle:
A countdown time of 3 seconds is available when you are freezing the display for easier reading, setting a reference zero angle or setting a target angle for memory storage. This means that you have a buffer period for placing and adjusting the pitch gauge in the desired position after pressing the function button. No more worries about affected readings by the button pressing action.

I couldn't get it to work for leveling swash (I'm not the only one) - stick with the standard mechanical swash leveler.)
