Inclinometer

Postby Alien Space Agency » Sun Dec 06, 2015 6:56 am

You could use that method to submit a "personal best" or compete in one of our competitions that does not require an altimeter such as the flight duration competition.

See this post for my analysis of best-value altimeters.

I didn't find anything inexpensive. An altimeter is a significant investment.
