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."

Lead-time
G-Meters
GM510-2 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 pulling.

Technical Specifications: MIL-A-5885C, Operation Temperature: -55 to +60C, fits standard 2 1/4" instrument cutout

Dimensions: 61 mm (2 1/4") x 61 mm x 108 mm (3.5")
