Default Testers

Knowing all offered are probably good, I would like to know a allaround good battery tester. Talking about a field tester that will provide a load maybe to check internal battery on the plane and the transmitter. Now I know the radio has a meter on it but thinking maybe battery is going down a little fast. Anyway a nose pointed in the correct direction would work. I have a volt ohm meter but it does not apply a load. Thanks and once more will be watching. gphil

Go onto Horizon Hobbies web site and look at there items, I have been very happy with all there equipment. I use the high end tach, TNC but I have tested it against several of the Volt Meter/Tach that Horizon sells and so far I haven't found a bad tach in the bunch. May as well get a two in one meter, both volt and tach. It will be with you for a lot of years.
