    My F1 Chrony is reading approx 30-35fps more that it should when I compared it with other chronos. Contacted Chrony in the US and they quoted me $25 for recalibration and $72 postage. With that money I might as well buy a new one.

    Just wanted to enquire if there is anybody in the UK that recalibrates F1 Chrony's at a decent price, or should I just bin it and buy a new chrono?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any help.

    Get A CED M2 Chronograph with Infra-Red Screens, more expensive but accurate & works in all lighting conditions. One of the main reasons Chrony's & other chronographs are inaccurate is the lighting conditions affecting the sensors.

    Purchased mine HERE

    money well spent, RobF has one too.

    Deduct 30 fps from the reading? :D

    You could try experimenting with lighting. The best I've found is to use it inside with the sky screens in and one of those cheap round magnetic led lights face down on top of each screen.

    Seems like im better off binning the F1 and buying a new chrono. Its between the CED and the Skan as i would like a chrono capable without the need of sunlight but both pieces of equipment a bit pricey.

    Thanks

    The Best!, imho, used many different chronos and always go back to the skan, built like a tank and always reads right;)
