Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are Falcon Gauges TSO'd?
- Falcon Gauges are not TSO'd, but
made to TSO or MIL specifications for quality. This helps keep
prices down and suitable for the experimental market.
2. What is your warranty policy?
- Falcon Gauges carry a one year
limited warranty from date of purchase.
3. Can I install the G-Meter in my type
certificated airplane or glider?
- This is a note from the
manufacturer: "The FAA does not require g-meter is TSO'd. There is
no TSO specification available. If you want to install a g-meter in
certified airplane or glider, all you need to do is that to take our
calibration sheet and fill out the FAA form and then get it approval
by an FAA field engineer."

||G-Meter, -5 to +10 g, 57
mm (2 1/4")
Accelerometer measures G forces acting on the airframe during
turbulent or aerobatic maneuvers. One pointer gives a continuous
reading, the other two indicate maximum positive and negative loads.
Easy to reset by pushing the reset button. All models are mechanical and
offer precision, accuracy, and durability. Very easy to operate. No
wiring necessary. Flying acrobatics or not, this G-Meter provides the
pilot valuable information and it's nice to have for any winged airplane
and helicopter without having to pay astonishing prices.
The units I have received to date are
slightly conservative because they read a little bit high. When
upright they read 1.1 to 1.2 g (see photos at right) and when inverted
they read -1.1 to -1.2 g. That makes sense because it would lead
you to think you are pulling slightly more Gs than you are actually
