Accelerometer

I find the fact that there's an accelerometer included in the data recorder package most fascinating (the Honeywell pdf says it's an option but I assume it's there). With this, of course, the complete terminal trajectory of the aircraft (or at least the portion containing the recorder) can be reconstructed up until the unit lost power - even continuing until the memory unit separated from the chassis in theory.
