Just got the text that it finally made it to Atlanta. This IS a happy Thanksgiving!I'd stay there for a while, too.
Mine overshot delivery by about 600 miles before finally turning around Saturday night. It was delivered late this afternoon, I hope your's comes along soon, SecondRow!
Thanks. I'll put in an order later today, I'm just trying to figure out what I want.Just a reminder that our sale runs through Monday the 30th, so if you bought some kits at a sweet discount over the past few days and you need electronics for them, we got you covered. We still have stock on everything...
No, no, no. You didn't 'miss' this sale. You're 'saving up' for whatever goodies Eggtimer releases in 2021! Like a Quantum size altimeter with an accelerometer. Or modules that plug onto the run pins and bluetooth network to the module on an Eggfinder that radios back telemetry like Alt and Phase of Flight.Kicking myself for not being able to decide and delaying and then missing the sale. :-/ Have fun everyone!
I did some work with an electronics company (Simtec Electronics) in the UK about 20 years ago. The pick and place machines were huge, noisy and incredibly expensive. Amazing to watch. I'm not surprised there isn't a realistic hobby version.30 minutes? Did you use paste and bake it?
Yes, the logos on some of the parts aren't as clear as we'd like... unfortunately that's beyond our control. They're designed for a pick and place machine... not something that most people have access to, and there's really no reliable hobby version yet either.
Trained monkeys come to mind....Getting the paste on the board is the easy part, especially if you leave the boards on the panel (i.e. don't cut them apart until they're done) and silkscreen a few dozen in one pass. Baking the boards is pretty simple too. Placing the parts is the bottleneck...
