Halloa people 🙂

one of the essential tools for our hobby is a power / watt meter. At some point you will want to know what the Amp draw of your RC actually is.. Can you prop / gear up or not?

Link to this watt meter: ToolKitRC WM150 advanced Power analyser

And here is my show & tell of it 🙂

Price is not so bad as well I see ... I particularly like the 'Servo Tester' built in operating the ESC etc.

You show the 150  ... I noted they have a 300 version as well.

Might be time to look at replacing my "ordinary" wattmeter ...

a 300W version? 😮  Which one is that?

I didn't check it out fully as to exactly its config ... but here's a link to it :

ah okee but that is a Charger.. it can Allso measure power, but not at 300W I think (don't know to be honest 😋)

As I say - it just came up when I searched the 150 version ... but never looked further.

But.. And.. they updated the firmware allready! That was quick.. I complained about it not showing the peak-amps..

Let's see what they did 🙂

If they're taking request for upgrades.

I've always liked to see a measure of voltage sag. The difference between a static value and a voltage reading under load. Returning a delta value of say 1.5vdc between load and no load for example.
Fly like your mad at it.

That would probably require the meter to keep a complete log of a session.. Which wouldn't be bad! 🙂  a .csv in that USB-dive after a run.. That way you can run whichever graph you can think of 🙂 
Not sure if it would have enough internal memory..

I do that by noting voltage when I connect and before loading .. then after load is off - I read the static again. Because I note the voltage under load - I then average the two statics to get an average sag figure. Actually I pay more attention to the Watts and Amps under load and derive my own volts even though my Wattmeter does show volts as well.

I am going to give this guy a whirl 🙂
