Phil, I have a Raven 1, 3 x Raven 2's (all 70g versions) 1 x Raven 2 (250g) but as yet no Raven 3's. They are all basically the same, I know Adrian ran out of one of the parts and could not get them anymore so he updated the whole altimeter when they went from being Raven to the Raven 2. I assume the same thing caused the Raven 2 to change to the Raven 3 but I do not really know. I know he gets his boards made in bulk so he might have run out of boards and just decided to revise it to make minor improvements.

They look the same and work the same which is all that matters. :wink:

I've got one Raven 3, but as Lamp said, the differences seem to be minor.
Some specs here: http://www.featherweightaltimeters.com/The_Raven.php
Really good piece of equipment!
