What's the best In Flight power analyzer
I'm looking to purchase an in flight power recorder. The following are my criteria in order.

Let me know what one you guys like and Where To Buy Them.

1. light enought to use in flight on a T-rex
2. monitors voltage, current, total used amps
3. download recorded data to laptop (kind of obvious)


wish list

3. (2) temp sensors for monitoring bat and motor
4. speed sensor for head speed
5. LCD display for non-laptop view of some data (I know this would problably add too much weigh for t-rex use.)

Thanks.

I was just going to ask this qestion. I looked around a bit and the Medusa Power analyzer plus looked like a good option. I dont know how much it weighs though.

realistically, there is

medusaproducts.com
the dpr-50 from bnr (google 'bnr-50'
eagletreesystems.com

that might fit your needs.

I use the DPR-50 from http://www.bnbproducts.com, weighs about 35 grams with Deans connectors and the dual temp probe. Doesn't do 4 or 5 from your list, but does a whole bunch more.

Get MicroPower from EagleTree systems. Does everything on your list except #5 and is cheaper, smaller and lighter than BNB's DPR-50 I believe. The software will allow you to dump a graph into a file too so you won't have to fiddle with screen capture. As for Medussa, I'm not sure theirs will work in the same way as DPR-50 or the MicroPower. It's more like a WattsUp kind of product - more bench oriented. I know, I have one of those - it's too big and heavy for a T-Rex to lug around while flying.

I second the Micropower. Mine arrived a couple days ago. Great little unit! And they have a small on-board LCD coming soon so you plug into one of the ports so you can take readings with out a computer.
