Review by: DavidAltis V4+
For many years I have used the 'RC version' height limiter in competitions, plugging in the separate reader to view the start height with no problems, just fiddly and parameters can be changed at the flying field with the keypad without a PC. The Altis V4+ however offered an inbuilt view screen to read off the start height without needing a separate reader which is why I purchased the unit. The sales blurb offered a plug in keypad to alter parameters at the field which was also attractive.
Altis Flight Manager installed itself on my PC with no problems in Windows 10 and proved easy to navigate and set the V4+ as required. The V4+ view screen proved legible in most lighting conditions. When trying to change parameters at the field however I found that the keypad worked OK but could only select the V4+ standard competitions and heights, ie. 100m, 150m, 200m etc and I could not select anything in between as sometimes bad weather dictates. I queried this with Aerobtec and they agreed and perhaps a new version software may be instigated. Therefore a PC at the field is required to adjust other than the set competitions, which I found annoying and misleading in the sales hype.
Nevertheless the Altis V4+ is a nice convenient small unit with the keypad giving limited adjustments at the field. The display is nicely legible though I need my glasses to read it. A bonus is that it can connect to Jeti for telemetry feedback and has extensive logging capabilities.

вобщем доволен Алтисом полностью
Review by: AdrianGood data, great fun
I bought the Altis for non-competition use and am delighted. It adds a further fun dimension to my slope soaring, it is great to be able to have measured height on those days when the model becomes a speck, and study the graphs/vario data on a PC later. Pity there is no GPS in it as I would have liked speed data too (the GPS alternative one has no screen). I have made up a see-through open-ended stiff-plastic sleeve that slots over the Altis, giving the screen protection during handling. One thing I have found is that not all micro USB cables are equal - one of mine would not let Altis connect with the PC (but is fine for other things like charging duties) - so make sure you use a cable of the appropriate specification.
Review by: PJMore Gadgets!
I just love gadgets, and this doesn't disappoint, used with the telemetry converter, Altitude and Vario are displayed on my Hitec Tx. Easy to use and programme, but be careful with the telemetry cables, as I managed to break a wire at the plug connection.
Also Hyperflight's service is second to none, this and other orders arrived extremely promptly, like, ordered on Friday at 4pm delivered next day at 11am
Review by: Tony Hollings
The unit works well as a standalone logger and it also works with my TM1000 (using the HS converter) but it does not work with my AR9350 which has integrated telemetry.
I emailed Aerobtec about the problem and they say they are aware of the issue and later versions do work with it.
It appears HyperFlight don't stock the newer versions though.
Review by: EssexBOFPurchases in General
This and all the items that have been purchased from Hyperflight, have arrived promptly without fail by return post. Very good service, plus is backed up with a good after sales service ******
Review by: Fabien GagneALES and F5J
Very nice device, small and neatly built.
When using the keyboard, I found that switching between F5J and ALES configuration rather difficult and criptic. I whish the switch back & forth would be easier.
Also, changing the launch height altitude for ALES should be improved such that it could be configured (100, 150, 200m) and verified without having to attach a keyboard.
Review by: CeebeeAltis V4
I bought this to replace one that has ceased to display. So far so good. Excellent service from Neil as usual.
Review by: jamesAtlas v4+
Brilliant device. Helps on review to learn lift when used with video of flight. Emergency restart did not work until I emailed maker and he put me right. Set end point below 1000. Ie full minus trim on dx7s

Neat little unit.
Review by: AnonymousAltis V4+
I have never used one of these type of units before, but found the software easy to download and in conjunction with the manual (also a download) simple to operate. I have just tried this unit out in a glider today and it seems to work a treat. An impressively capable and well put-together piece of kit.
Review by: John CloganAerobTec Altis V4
Arrived next working day.
Haven't used it yet as glider still work in progress but downloaded software and set everything up. No issues as yet and top service from Hyperflight.
Review by: Jeroen KoleAltisV4+
I am new to F5j, but using the altis is very easy. The software is supplied on the man. website. No trouble installing it and easy to use. Very small unit. Great product.
Review by: BobTito
This review is just to tell that the service was great as usual :-)
This is my third altos, the first V4+ and the white display is a bit clearer to look at when using sun glasses on the field. Nice to have but no reason to replace the other 2 ..
The extra's like telemetry are not used, the all are loaded with te FAI F5J firmware.
the best logger in my opinion, no hassle with external displays and fragile cables.
Review by: DGRecording Altimeter
This is probably the most versatile recording altimeter on the market.
I have a RAM which is slightly smaller - but for all-round functionality the ALTIS V4+ is the best

As the tittle says.

Top piece of kit and very easy to programme and use and small perfect
Review by: MatFirst experiences
The skills of the altisV4 are simple to understand and very usable for me. Thank You.
I inquire about whether the telemetry datas are ok for the hitec optima9 receiver too? It would be fantastic to me.
Review by: AnonymousLooking forward
I have not flown this module yet but one feature which I really like is that you can set any altitude from 1 upward.
The benefit of this is that by setting say 3 metres you can walk up stairs and see that the system is fully working.
Just waiting for some flying weather now. Reduced star rating because I had slight problems using the software. At 80 I am no whiz kid so probably down to me.
Review by: Brynjar PihlAerob Tec Altis v 4
Hello from Norway....:-))
Thanks for superfast delivery...!! Almost amazing.....:-)
This little logger is just awesome.... easy to set up and works just fine. I have installed the FAI F5J program with max 30 second motorrun. You can also use it just as a flightlogger. I have tried both, and I am very happy with the way it is working.
With the Micro USB you can read every flight of the day.
Thanks again for the help/service !!

We found the Altis v4 was convenient at first national F5J competition in Japan.
Review by: Hutton
Once again Neil and his staff have excelled themselves with excellent (speedy and secure) service to the other side of the world.
I'm looking forward to further firmware updates from Jozef. Already the Altis V4 is a great little device, with a wider range of telemetry options it can only be better.
