Headspeed Tachometer?
Trying to acquire a shutter-style tachometer good to at least 3000 RPM.

looks like the MA Skytach and the Turnigy LCD tach are both no longer available. Is there anything currently on the market? Google wants to sell me laser-based tachs, which won't do what I need.

When I had an Android phone, I used this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/...e.headspeedtach
It seemed to work quite well. I couldn't find something similar for iPhone though. You did need to lay your phone on the ground and hover over it for a short time.

If I am not mistaken, the MA Skytach only goes up to 2000 RPM.

Magic mirror... Be careful on your selection!

I would prefer a "dancing" motor inside the gadget.

Sorry, my gy701 was good because a OLED screen "top of the technology!" ...
There you are, a piece of junk!

The max speed is irrelevant. If you see 4 blades then it's twice as fast as the display shows. I've had a Kyosho tach since the mid 90s and that's how it's been used since headspeeds on little helis got crazy.

Wait a minute.
With this model avionics tach, we don't need to divide by number of blades, isn't it?

I got a dude about it.

No idea. I can tell you with an optical tach if you’re looking through it and see 4 blades it is spinning at half the head speed. If the MA is optical, that is still true.Nick Crego

I have this model: https://www.wr-store.com/product_in...oce2rnsbgi798r4

Which the specs state a range of 500-3300 for 2 blade

My regular G2 however (looks identical), has a 2 blade range of 500-4200RPM and 4 blade up to 2500

The problem with those is you have to get close to the blades. There’s a post on here from about 5 yr ago where James from the RCtoday show cut off 2 fingers using his airplane tach on a heli.
