If we do, we’ll let you know, and get busy making more of them. Nobody’s going away empty-handed… you just might have to wait a few weeks if we run out. If you’re giving something as a gift, be sure to let us know, and order early… our email is [email protected]

And as always, thanks for your continued support!

We're still selling at the Holiday Sale discounts, up through the 30th. On a delivery note, we just got the PC boards for the Quasars, we'll be shipping out the 70 cm Ham and 869 MHZ UK/EU versions this week; we're still waiting for our shipment of 900 MHz RF modules. We expect them in about a week... thanks for your patience, we'll try to get them shipped out as soon as we can. We're going to be "out of the office" from the 10th through the 17th, we're hoping we get them before then.

Thanks to all of you for a successful Holiday Sale! We're busy shipping out what we have in stock, and putting together kits to cover the rest. We're short on RF modules for the GPS and telemetry products, we have a partial shipment due in the next few days and the rest in about a week or two. We are going to be on vacation from Dec. 10th-18th, so nothing is going to be going out in that period; if your order is a gift and you have not previously let us know, contact us immediately so we can prioritize your order.

A shipping update...

We're working on the backlog, besides the usual volume-related issues we're also short on RF modules. The one large shipment that we expected in early November has turned out to be several smaller shipments over time, however we do expect to have all of the tracking and telemetry products shipped out by the end of December. If your order was a gift, please notify us IMMEDIATELY... we're holding back a small number of kits for those contingencies. Also, please note that we will be away from the shop from Dec. 10th-18th, so nothing is going to ship out that week.

No, the current version is going to be replaced with a new and equivalent version, due to the unavailability of the accelerometer chip. It's going to take some time, though... we probably won't have them for sale until late Spring.

FYI, we finally got our "November" shipment of RF modules yesterday. We're working on making up the kits... there are a few hundred to be kitted, so it's going to take a few days. Most of the orders should go out sometime next week... thanks for your patience.

How long does it take you to knock out a typical Eggtimer kit? It's still a full evening task for me to do one.

It depends on the kit. I did an Apogee in 30min the other night. Did my first Quantum last night and while on Norco for my back and trying to ignore the YouTube video I had playing, it took me 90min or so. The quantum is pretty fiddly though.

I'd like to give a shout out to Chris here! You all know this already, but standup service again. He gave us weeks to get our orders in and I still forgot, but my late order was given holiday sale price! Thanks Chris, we appreciate everything you provide here.

Do them during my ~30 min lunch break at work. Most are built one day, then tested the next. An Apogee is done & tested in a day, the Proton 2 days to build and another to test.

Looking forward to getting a Proton once Cris has time to get to developing the new version dealing with the accelerometer going EOL.

It's mostly Quantums I've built so far. I am a good bit slower than you. :)

It is not about speed my friend! Its all about enjoying working on them and making sure they work. Cris has done his part for design and development, the rest is on us! :)

I absolutely LOVE the Quark, have many of them. They work so so well and for a simple DD device, you cannot beat $20 with a stick!

The Quantum is new to me and I am looking forward to the added features for some of my more complex rockets that I normally use my RRC2L/RRC3 or Raven(s) for. The wireless functionality on it really has me intrigued!!

Also had to get a Quasar in 70cm along with the other bits to go with it for my Balls project(s) for 2023. :cool:

Hi! What is your test procedure... beyond turning it on and listening for the correct number of beeps, I just tested my quantum in a makeshift vacuum chamber to ensure it would set off electric matches in the proper sequence.
