Barometer add-on for RE1
The add-on uses a barometer to measure the pressure of the ambient air, from which RE1 then calculates the altitude.
MSRP: $9 BUY
Status: Out of stock. Expected by end of February.
EVER WONDER HOW HIGH YOU ARE?
NAVIGATE WITH EASE
Display the altitude in the OSD to always know how high you are
Use the altitude-hold flight mode
Go all out and combine it with a GPS and an I2C compass to make RE1 fully navigation capable (position hold, loiter, return-to-home, waypoints).
EASY AND EXTENDABLE
DESIGNED FOR YOU
We made RE1 to be extendable and added an extension port with high speed interfaces (SPI, I2C), as well as general purpose signals.
RE1-Baro is the first add-on for RE1 that makes use of the extension port and so can directly stacked on top of RE1 without any wiring, making it easy to use and keeping your build neat and clean.
1: Place the spacers and foam.
2: Position the add-on and craefully press down with your finger.
You will hear a "click" when the connector mates.
3: Use the screws to hold the add-on in place. Done :).
