Not exactly sure but a little under $45 in low qtys.

What are you like at electronics assembly ? Most parts are SMD.

$43 will get you the ADEPT22, I flew mine on the weekend and it functioned perfectly, the makers of the altimeter have been around a while and their products are reliable, in fact I believe they copyrighted the term Dual Deployment, as they were the first offer such products.

I power mine from a 2 cell lipo battery, though the manufacturers recommend an alkaline 9v,
