HowFast - close-up of the circuit board HowFast - the complete system HowFast - Reading from the SeeHow

The circuit board of this superb device measures only 27 mm x 16 mm x 7 mm (1.06" x 0.63" x 0.28") and weighs only 7.2g (0.25 oz.) including the power lead, pitot tube, static tube and flexible pipe.

The system comprises a pair of aluminium pitot and static tubes, connected to the circuit board by flexible silicon tubing.

For the first attempt at using it a pair of tubes were mounted into the front of the canopy of the Easy-Jet, mainly because it is really fast and a good candidate.  On flying a speed of 106.2 mph (171 km/h) was recorded.
