Hi guys. Planning my spring activities.

For the unreinforced bottle competition, you only need to record the peak altitude using a commercial altimeter so the one from Estes would qualify (would have helped if you had posted a model number or link to the specific one you were planning on using).

The rules state the following for the unreinforced bottle competition:

Rocket must carry onboard a mass produced altimeter to document the maximum altitude of the flight.

Hope that helps and good luck! PH:
