Cambridge Instruments by fw.unt
Hi Since about one year I hear rumors about Cambridge will stop developping and makeing their great flight instruments. Does anybody have some more information about that? We plan to buy C302/303 for our new gliders and don't want to invest in the wrong direction. Thanks for any hint, FW.
