SK-LZR Availability

The manufacturer of the core module of the SK-LZR laser altimeter was bought out by a larger company at the beginning of 2016. Unfortunately that means we can’t provide any more SK-LZR’s until they go into production again. In the mean time, we will begin testing a potential replacement module from another provider.
