AeroPerfect's measuring unit sends digital information via a flexible cable to an easy-to-read, digital display. This liquid crystal display shows the angular difference between your chosen zero reference and any angle while referencing gravity. You set the zero angle reference wherever you want it!
The AeroPerfect Digital Incidence and Control Throw Meter is truly a digital measuring tool (unlike other meters which claim to be digital but merely have a digital display). The Aeroperfect's precision measuring head sends optical information as a train of digital pulses which is digitally processed by the display unit. Unlike cheap, capacitive-type angle meters, the AeroPerfect's accuracy will not drift with changes in temperature and never needs re-calibration.
Unlike bubble-type meters, direct and immediate wing incidence and decalage measurements can be made without the need for leveling. Ordinary plastic protractor gauges require interpolation and introduce significant inaccuracies due to parallax error. The AeroPerfect Digital Incidence and Control Throw Meter is vastly superior to these meters because measurements are read directly from the digital display. Other electronic angle meters currently available cannot come close to the precision, repeatability and 360 degree range of the AeroPerfect Meter!
The AeroPerfect is the only meter you will need for all aspects of setting up model aircraft! Use it to measure control throws for ailerons, elevators, and rudders; match elevator halves; measure wing and stab incidence, engine thrust line and side thrust angle, decalage, biplane decalage, wing wash-in or wash out; set rotor blade collective pitch; align wheel pants perfectly. Use it to level wing and stab; measure fin offset angle; set fin exactly at 90 degrees and much more- all with .05 degree resolution. That's right- one half of one tenth of a degree!
Whether you're flying giant scale aircraft, IMAC competition, or setting up your glider for perfect performance, the AeroPerfect Digital Incidence and Control Throw Meter is the tool of choice! It is also the perfect tool to use when programming digital servos! (see Hitec Digital Servo Programming Page for more details).
