    The Holiday sale this year will begin on 11/28/2019 and will end on 12/25/2019. During the sale the Eggfinder LCD case will be priced at $20.00 plus shipping. This year will include a new color! Only during this sale will the Orange option be available. The Orange option is printed in PETG, using premium filament, with a photo below to give you an idea of how bright this case is.

    I will also be offering a raffle, for one free Eggfinder LCD Case in either Gray or Orange. To enter, just reply to this thread and on 12/26/2019 I will announce a winner. If the winner purchased a case during the sale, they will be refunded the full price including shipping.

    Do not forget, each case comes with continual support from myself. Over the years I have replaced handles that have been stepped on, bitten by dogs, and even replaced an entire first generation case, due to a design flaw in the original product. I stand by my design and products, and am always here to make sure you are happy.

    Keep your eyes out for new products next year, I have been a busy new father and have not had the time to produce anything new this year. Thank you for all of your support, I am a tiny one man operation and your purchases support my family and I.

    Outstanding. I will have to get one of each color. I always recommend people go with this case when I assemble there tracker kits.

    Yes, it's just a different color and a different material.

    I can, the order would need to be made directly with me and the shipping cost would increase.

    I love my Black Aero case. I might have to pick up an orange one so it's easier to see and won't be left on the ground unnoticed after fishing a rocket out of a tree... again.

    That orange looks great, I might have to switch to it for easier visibility.

    For everyone asking questions about, I recently tested a new filament and the only color I could get shipped to the USA for a decent price was orange. So I printed out a few items, and fell in love with the color so I decided to spice up this sale with a limited color.

    The filament used for this is, Prusament's PETG. This is really high quality virgin filament, made to incredible tolerances. I hope each of you love the new material, color and it's higher transition temperature.

    I was just looking at that and thinking, that looks like Prusament Orange PETG. I know it well, very nice filament.

    For anyone considering buying one of these cases, I have two of them and the quality is exceptional. Great value!

    I might be looking to upgrade to that orange color... Do these come with button switches and etc, or do we supply those ourselves.

    Granted, with so many people enamored with the new orange, there may be a student influx of second-hand gray or blue cases coming on the market shortly!

    In the meantime, please enter me in your drawing!

    I like it! I was planning on designing and printing my own but at your price, what's the point? Do you also have a spot to put a back lit LCD toggle on there for night flights?

    It does not have a back light button location, as these are made for the majority of people and I find the majority of people fly during the day. But it can easily be added.

    Perfect timing. My NASA SL team just ordered a couple of Eggfinders and these cases will be awesome.

    The orange case looks nice, and I'm pretty excited to watch for new products in 2020.
    -Cheers

    I like the orange much better than the grey, personally. Though that probably has to do with the fact that I lose things right in front of my face unless they are bright orange... If I'm being honest there are times the bright orange doesn't even help.

    The orange looks great and will hopefully help me keep track of it.

    I like the idea of a backlight button as an option, but more for testing than using.

    Like already pointed out, this is likely to be used during the day. However, the recovery could go into the low light hours. Also, I have done testing during the night and needed a backlight.

    If I were to have a backlight switch, I think keeping it on the body vs. the handle is best because it means less wires to deal with and strain when servicing the battery.

    I also like the idea of another switch to select between the BT or GPS (can't recall which one) and the programming, with an external port to plug into for the programming cable.

    It is very inconvenient to have to open this up when you want to program a tracker. I have already had to resolder the wires once, because of this.
