Altus Metrum announces EasyTimer v1 and AltOS 1.9.3

Announcing EasyTimer v1

We're pleased to announce a brand new Altus Metrum product: EasyTimer.
EasyTimer is an advanced flight electronics board with two pyro
channels and tilt limits designed to control events during ascent,
including staging, strap-ons and clusters.

EasyTimer is an advanced electronics system with 9-axis IMU and 2
fully configurable pyro channels. We designed EasyTimer to be an
easy-to-use solution for sustainers and other complex projects where
the additional capabilities of EasyMega aren't needed. Read more about
EasyTimer here:

Announcing AltOS 1.9.3

Along with support for EasyTimer v1, AltOS 1.9.2 includes a few
minor changes in flight software:

* Add "APRS offset". This allows you to share a single frequency
among multiple devices and have them coordinate transmission to
avoid stepping on each other.

* Improve flight erase logic to prevent trouble if erasing is
interrupted.

I saw the announcement on FB and bought one on the spot!
I'm a huge cluster / staging fan.
Haven't been able to tinker with it yet.

How is this not getting more publicity?? This is awesome, I've wanted something like this for years.
yes! i just by chance clicked on this thread, a device like this has been needed for a long time. This opens up a lot of electronics options for HPR multi-stage

Never mind. Got it communicating finally, and you can configure it beeper up or beeper down.

So it looks to be the same physical size and same cost as the EasyMini, but with more features (accel, etc...).
