The Kestrel 5700 Hand Held Weather Meter with LINK with Hornady 4DOF has been trusted by hundreds of thousands of long-range hunters and shooters since 2016. Ideal for precise long-range calculations using low-drag precision bullets, the Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Calculator provides trajectory solutions based on projectile Drag Coefficient (not ballistic coefficient) along with the exact physical modeling of the projectile and its mass and aerodynamic properties. Additionally, it calculates the vertical shift a bullet experiences as it encounters a crosswind; referred to as aerodynamic jump. The Hornady 4DOF also accurately calculates angled shots by accounting for important conditions.
The Kestrel 5000 Series platform offers a large, high-resolution and contrast display with ease of font readability. It also includes a built-in dual color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens, AA battery operation and LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support. Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel 5700 is drop-tested, dust-proof, waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage– so it can accompany you to the range or hunt for years to come. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take your Kestrel 5700 with you.
Buy the Kestrel 5700 with LiNK and get the power of the Kestrel LiNK Ballistics app for Android or the Kestrel Link Ballistics app for iOS for free. Build and manage your gun/bullet profiles and download them to your Kestrel 5700 before you set out. At the range or match, secure your Kestrel 5700 to a tripod using the optional Kestrel Vane Mount and use the app to quickly adjust the target range and view the shooting solution and wind rose without leaving your shooting position. It's like having a meteorologist and ballistician standing next to you while you shoot.
In addition to the ballistics solver capabilities, the Kestrel 5700 is a comprehensive weather meter for measurement and logging of primary environmental conditions: wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, heat index, pressure and altitude. Paired with the Vane Mount, the Kestrel 5700 Ballistics Weather Meter becomes a compact, easily-deployable weather station. Your data log can be transferred to a iOS/Android device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless communication option and Kestrel LiNK app, or to a Windows/Mac device with either the accessory Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable (Both sold separately).
Kestrels have been put to the test in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. U.S. Special Forces, combat weather teams, wildland firefighters, smoke jumpers, Mt. Everest expeditions and auto pit crews are just a few who rely on a Kestrel to provide them with the crucial environmental data they need. Watch any on-screen meteorologist during a hurricane, and you’re sure to spot a Kestrel in action. With a Kestrel 5700, you can put accurate shooting solutions and environmental measurements in the palm of your hand, anywhere your adventure takes you.
