Description
 

Kestrel 5700 Elite Weather Meter - Applied Ballistics - FDE - 0857ALFDE:
The Kestrel applied ballistics meter combines sophisticated environmental sensing features with long-range shooting ballistics information in one hand-held device. You'll want to download the Kestrel LiNK Ballistics app to your smart phone to load your guns / ammo to the meter. The new Kestrel Meters with Bluetooth include the software necessary to communicate wirelessly at a range of up to 100 feet with a clear line of site (walls or obstacles will effect this range). This app is what you use to load your Gun/Ammo combinations to the Kestrel. You can NOT load your gun profiles from the Dongle.

The Built in Applied Ballistics Software Provides all of the Following :

  • The accurate and trusted Litz library of G1 and G7 referenced Ballistic Coefficients (BCs).
  • Custom drag curve modeling; helpful in engaging targets beyond the supersonic range of the bullet.
  • Ballistic Calibration (truing) feature allows you to train the solver based on actual bullet impact.
  • PC Loader software; build firearm profiles on your computer and transfer them via wire or Bluetooth


Whats New With This Model :
  • Bluetooth LINK to Smartphones / Mobiel / Android / IOS
  • Takes 1 AA battery
  • Battery door is in the back, sealed away from the motherboard.
  • Improved high resolution screen for any lighting (even sunlight) and easy on your eyes.
  • Intuitive user-interface screen navigation
  • Multiple Languages: English, French, German, Spanish
  • Scratch and breakage-resistant window
  • All meters include both options of Red (NV - Night Vision) & White backlights.
The Kestrel Shooter's Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics Technology measures up to 15 environmental parameters and allows users to select from either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients (BC) when calculating a trajectory at the range. The handy, portable meter also offers the Litz measured BC library of well over 200 bullets and growing, which is considered to be the most extensive source of measured data for modern small arms bullets. Users can also train the Kestrel Shooters Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics software to match a specific rifle based on observed impacts at long range with the ballistics calibration feature, which offers even more accurate data points for users to rely on. With easy access to more accurate BC data, shooters have everything they need to make a much more precise trajectory calculation in a compact and durable Kestrel meter design.
The Kestrel Shooters Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics allows users to select either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients, or to be even more specific and select from an entire library of Applied Ballistics Custom Curves for more than 200 common long-range bullets.
You can load up to 30 guns, one bullet each. In the case where you have multiple ammo types for a given rifle, you have to enter a whole new gun for each ammo type.

Kestrel Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics Features
Employs the Applied Ballistics bullet library of custom drag models, an exact measurement of your bullets drag profile plus corrections for Aerodynamic Jump, Spin Drift, Coriolis, and Drop Scale Factoring to achieve accurate extended long-range shots.

Expanded features include a customizable Range Card, and an expanded Ballistics Data Table as well as storage for up to 30 gun and bullet profiles and 5 saved targets.

Calculate accurate fire control solutions for long range rifle shooting.


Select either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficient when calculating a trajectory.


Get ballistic coefficient data for more than 225 long range bullets.


The AB Kestrel comes with numerous pre-loaded drag models, but not entire gun/ammo profiles. In other words you have to build your gun profile, but you can choose from the list of bullets when
modeling your ammo.


Measure up to 15 environmental parameters at your fingertips.
