RRC3 Sport Altimeter
The Rocket Recovery Controller 3 (RRC3) is a barometric dual-deploy altimeter, with the features of high-end units, at the cost of those with a more modest feature set. In addition to basic dual-deploy capability, the RRC3 is a multi-flight recording unit, allowing you to fly all day, without the need to stop and download data in between flights.

The RRC3 also provides a third, highly flexible and programmable 'Auxiliary' output which can provide staging, airstarts, backup events, and a host of other applications. The RRC3 can also support real-time data streaming capabilities in flight for our RTx telemetry system or for interface with other custom control or downlink radio systems.

Despite this unrivaled suite of intrinsic capabilities and expandability, the RRC3 still maintains its simple "buy it and fly it" operations. You can literally attach a battery and fly it "dual-deploy" out of the box.


Architectural Features
· 16MHz 16-bit MSP430 Series mCU
· 4Mbit SST Flash Memory
· MSI MS5607 Pressure sensor

Note: This high resolution altimeter sensor has a 24 bit ΔΣ ADC, with internal factory calibrated coefficients which provide a precise digital 24 bit pressure and temperature. The RRC3 design also provides a dedicated "baro-only" regulated power system and applies other noise reduction techniques to further accurize pressure data.
