Model-Gadget's Ultra-PAC-II
Commercial CAMPAC clones for Futaba R/C transmitters available through these dealers.
If you are interested in self-made CAMPAC clones, have a look at my 16 kB ClonePacs. They do work and are currently in service in my Futaba FC18 V3 Plus radio. One 16 kB CAMPAC clone provides storage capacity for 11 models within the FC18 transmitter.
R/C variometer and altimeter with bi-directional 2.4 GHz link and data logging
Commercial digital variometer solution of some of my engineering colleagues. The system settings are customizable through a PC interface. It's solid electronic engineering, therefore not cheap.
RC data logger with altitude capture
German page about a self-made RC data logger using PIC 16F84 and MPXS 4100A absolute pressure sensor.
Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV)
The impressive story of the Silvertone Flamingo UAV.
