Anyone know who or what make this tach is ?

Did a search online no luck. Notice many in Japan use these wonder if there customf. Like that it doesn't need a second person to take readings.

It looks to me like this:

But seriously...

Perhaps it is an airplane tachometer mounted on the ground in some way?

It's a rotor tach, It mounted on the tail boom, it's made by Tera. I believe it's been discontinued for years (I think).

That is an example of a planker tach.

You can get 'em anywhere.

do a search.

try someone like hobbyking.

get a cheaper one so if it does not work you did not spend lots on it.





I see plank flyers!!!

If you want a "one-person" heli tach, look at the Turnigy micro tach. Less than $10. I made a little wood holder for mine, set it on the ground and hover over it. It has real time rpm and records max rpm.

the thing with the tach in my image is the size of the display.
nice and big numbers.

possible the range and distance is another thing to consider.

Turnigy micro tach as word implies is a little small and difficult to see. fine for props

i believe thunder tiger used make one that mounted on the tail boom also nice. i believe its discontinued.

cheers

I have an iPhone app that works pretty well, however it does take two people.
