    Have you ever wanted an Eggfinder tracker, Eggtimer altimeter or Eggtimer TRS Total Recovery System from www.Eggtimerrocketry.com but your soldering skills aren't up to par? If so this is an oppturnity for you to get one of these AMAZING kits! I will assemble your kit for you, test it out provide pictures and then send the kit ready to fly back to you.

    How it will work:

    Step 1: You purchase the kit from Eggtimer Rocketry and have it sent to me.(or ship it to me if you have it already)

    Step 2: I receive it and assemble it. I will send you pictures of the final product.

    Step 3: I will test the Device to make sure it is working properly.

    Step 4: I send it back to you, you receive it and fly it!!


    SEE WWW.MCTRONICS.WEBS.COM FOR MOST UP TO DATE PRICES AND TO PLACE ORDERS. THANKS!

    If you buy ahead one kit you can ship out as soon as the new kit arrives for assembly ..quick turn.

    If you buy ahead two kits, you have one ready to go and you have complete spare parts if something is DOA, damaged In shipping or you fry a trace or component..

    Heck you could have grabbed a 6 pack in the sale and sold them 'used' / assembled in the yard sale for list .

    Pics look good !

    Also the kits are set for a specific frequency so the one on hand may not (will not) match the one someone is sending.

    Connor, you may want to change your logon name... Conman has a different reference when you're trying to sell something... Just sayin...

    Point taken. I don't know if I can change it without creating a new account. Conman was a childhood nickname that i use for most of my online accounts.

    Connor is assembling two TXs and an LCD RX for me. I'll post his handy work here when I receive them. Hopefully that will help Connor drum up some business.

    Nice service Connor. Allows you to earn some rocketry $$$$.:clap: Plus you can aid those that find it difficult or scary to assemble.
    I showed an EF to a couple of folks at MWP12 and they were concerned about the soldering. Of course with the right equipment (which
    doesn't have to be pricey) it's easily doable. Kurt

    I will get them out Monday. I didn't know if you wanted to use the RX battery box or a Lipo so I soldered a JST connector to the RX and will solder a JST connector to the battery box so you can use a Lipo or the battery box.

    Perfect. I will probably LiPo, but having the option will be nice.

    I am looking for someone who will be purchasing the Eggfinder TRS. I would like to assemble one going along with the directions before I begin to assemble them for a price. Therefore I'm offering a free assembly to someone that will be willing to ship me an Eggfinder TRS to build.

    I always add a drop of super glue to the battery connectors because I find after a while they will break off. Thats just the white stuff that appears when the super glue dries. It gets wiped off.

    Yup, I sort of wished that there was a hair bit more room for screw-in terminal connectors. I had ones with the right spacing but just didn't fit. It's nice to
    be able to change out the battery connector wires without having to desolder. I'll have to try the CA trick. Thanks Connor. Kurt

    UPDATE:


    Shipping for orders with LCD RX added. Sorry to do this but Ive been losing money on shipping due to the larger and heavier packaging needed for the LCD RX case.
