I placed my order for some eggfinder products today and it took almost a full hour from email sent to receiving shipment notification. I'm looking forward to get these put together...

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!
Just got the text that it finally made it to Atlanta. This IS a happy Thanksgiving!

It will probably be here tomorrow, but since I’m heading down to Tifton for our GRITS launch, I won’t see it until Sunday.

Great, happy Thanksgiving!

Mine isn't talking to me, and time's getting pretty short for troubleshooting. Don't know what I'll have to fly, but I'm planning to go to GRITS, too!

Cool! See you there. Here’s hoping the weather holds. I’ll be attempting an L2 cert if the cloud ceiling isn’t too low.

Some times the assembly can be a little tricky, especially if you can’t get something to work. But, if you have a problem, you can readily contact Cris... he goes well out of his way to make sure you get the help you need.

In my opinion, you will not find better customer service anywhere.

Woke up this morning to a package on my doorstep. Thanks, Cris!

Cool!

And I got my Proton screw-up fixed late last night! What's the last part you'd want to have to remove and turn around on a Proton?

Nice.

Not having built one but looking at the manual, I’m going to say the 28-pin interface chip. Yikes!

In Transit, Arriving Late
Your package will arrive later than expected, but is still on its way. It is currently in transit to the next facility.

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...

Thanks. I'll put in an order later today, I'm just trying to figure out what I want.

Like all good things, the Eggtimer Rocketry Holiday Sale has to come to an end. A big Thank You for everyone who ordered from us! We were able to ship out most of the orders pretty quickly, however we ran out of a few things in the last two days of the sale, namely Quarks, Quantums, and the GPS transmitters. We'll be kitting them up as soon as possible to fill you orders... we expect to be able to ship everything by next week.

Well I think I will stick a fork in it and call it done. Just finished testing the final kit (TRS) that I bought at the sale. All good (TRS, 2xApogee, Proton). Thanks Cris .

Kicking myself for not being able to decide and delaying and then missing the sale. :-/ Have fun everyone!

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.

(No insight here - just wishing)

We're already working on our 2021 stuff... lots of work to do.

I'd second that, especially one with data logging. Like a mini Proton (without the wifi).

Edit: Quark, I was thinking Quark sized altimeter with accelerometer.

Sometimes you don't know when you're gonna get them until they show up at your doorstep... especially if there's a LiPo battery label on them.

What is the best email for a customer service issue? My eggtimer was wrecked by previous builder and I have to order new parts to try again

I got my Proton the other day in the mail. I had it populated in about a half an hour and tested all six channels in just under a hour. There is lots of room for soldering the parts on and very easy. The only issue I have is that even with a lot of light and eye loupe it is very hard to read the part numbers. Some part makers just don't want to white wash the part number for ease.
Great toy can't wait to use it. Thanks Chris!

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.

We have a local manufacturer we use for PCB assembly for work sometimes. They have a nifty printer that can print the solderpaste on the PCB, rather than using stencils. Neat bit of kit.

I wonder what the current pick-and-place machines are up to these days. I remember Siemens had done that would to 80000 chip components per hour, but that was a few years ago now.
