Yes it actually works on Helis

You just have to find a safe enough way to get in close enough when spooled up

Good for the price

May be ok for airplanes, but definitely not practical for helicopters

Easy to use and works good.

This is one of my favorite heli tools that I own. I used to estimate my RPMs by just taking a video and watching for the blade pattern to sync up with the frame rate, but this tach makes the process much simpler.

The tach measures in 10 RPM steps; you have to multiply the RPMs it displays by 10 to get the actual RPM. I was a little confused until I found this note in the instructions/packaging.

The sensing on this tach is amazing; as other reviewers have noted, with enough background light, it can accurately detect RPMs from several feet away. The recommended procedure is to point the tach up through the blades (for a heli), but it was sensitive enough that I found that with my T-Rex 450 clone I could just lay it flat on the ground perpendicular to the main rotor shaft and it could still accurately detect the RPMs (presumably from the shadows cast by the blades).

The display is clear and easy to read in outdoor lighting conditions. I think the instructions could have been a little clearer, but overall this product is a great addition to any pilot's toolbox and is well worth the price.

the digital tach is easy to use and fairly accurate.use in day time to get a reading even a farther distance than the recommended 18in
i pointed at the blades from 3 feet away and still got a reading .for
the price is accurate enough,why spend $100 when you can do it for under $30.
