Altimeter Alternatives

Postby Alien Space Agency » Thu Nov 19, 2015 2:00 am

Do you allow 4 peak altitude altimeters in one rocket? The readings of the 4 altimeters will be estimated to get the average altitude. Then the readings will have +-10 ft margin of error. Or how about one PA altimeter and another logging altimeter? And will be estimated as well. And how about manual calculation?

I asked these questions because my country does not have any available altimeters in store. I do not want to buy online (too much hassle)

Cheers
