    Well, it's that time of year again, to get out the fruitcake bricks and start planning out your BF strategy. Here at Eggtimer Rocketry, we think you have better things to do with your time than to sit in front of your computer waiting for the clock to tick exactly at 07:00:00 am so you might be one of the first 25 people to get a sweet deal. So, OUR sale will run from Saturday, Nov. 10th through Monday Nov. 26th (Cyber Monday). If you order anything on sale during this time you WILL get the sale price.

    So without further ado, here goes:

    Altimeter/Av Bay Stuff
    o NEW Eggtimer Proton Flight Computer (6 outputs, 120G accelerometer, WiFi) Reg. $70, sale price $55
    (Est. ship date is Nov. 19th... see note below)
    o Eggtimer Quantum WiFi-Enabled Flight Computer, Reg. $40, sale price $30
    o Eggtimer Classic Flight Computer, Reg. $35, sale price $25
    o Eggtimer Quark 2-Output Deployment Controller, Reg. $20, sale price $15
    o Eggtimer WiFi Switch, Reg. $20, sale price $15

    Eggfinder GPS Trackers
    o Eggfinder LCD Starter Set (Eggfinder TX transmitter & LCD receiver) Reg. $120, sale price $100
    o Eggfinder Mini/LCD Starter Set (Eggfinder Mini transmitter & LCD receiver) Reg. $125, sale price $105
    o Eggtimer TRS Starter Set (Eggtimer TRS transmitter & LCD receiver) Reg. $140, sale price $120
    o Eggfinder Starter Set (Eggfinder TX transmitter & RX "dongle" Receiver) Reg. $90, sale price $70
    (specify USB cable or Bluetooth version)
    o Eggfinder Mini Starter Set (Eggfinder Mini transmitter & RX "dongle Receiver) Reg. $95, sale price $75
    (specify USB cable or Bluetooth version)
    o Eggfinder TX GPS transmitter, Reg. $70, sale price $50 (Yup, $50 for a GPS transmitter...)
    o Eggfinder Mini GPS transmitter, Reg. $75, sale price $55
    o Eggtimer TRS GPS/Flight Computer, Reg. $90, sale price $70
    o Eggfinder LCD receiver only, Reg. $55, sale price $50
    o Eggfinder LCD-GPS Module for LCD receiver, Reg. $40, sale price $32
    o Eggfinder RX receiver only, Reg. $25, sale price $20
    (specify frequency and USB cable or Bluetooth)

    We have inventory on almost everything, but due to the nature and the volume involved in this sale it is highly possible (if not likely...) that we might run out of something. 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 week or so if we run out. In the case of the Eggtimer Proton, it's not going to be out until about the 19th, so if you order early and want to split the shipment we'll be happy to do that, or we can hold it all and ship it together. Your choice.

    And if you haven't seen it already, check out our new web site... EggtimerRocketry.com

    And as always, thanks for your continued support!

    So the big question is "With the Proton coming out, do I really need to get a Quantum?" LOL. Nice sale. Thanks Cris. Love the new site.

    Holycow Quarks for $15, cheaper than a Firefly. I take it I need to wait 3 days before ordering a pocketful...ought to be able to reflow half a dozen at a whack.

    OK, I can wait for three days, maybe, but I think I can wait for three days.... Eggfinders for $50, do I HAVE to wait for three more days?
    Great sale Cris! as usual...

    Cris, have you ever considered making a small PCB with some assorted footprints on it and a small selection of components that people could use to practice on before assembling the real boards? You could possibly to it as a separate kit.

    For $15, a Quark isn't a bad practice board... and you get something out of it when you're done. :)

    I built two Quarks. About an hour for each, IIRC.

    I like the new difficulty rating on the site. Feel pretty good about myself building two functioning Eggfinder minis. Think I’m ready for a quantum.

    Go to ebay and search for "smd practice" - there are lots of kits available for a couple of dollars. A little practice on one of these helps the confidence quite a bit when tackling a real build.

    Perfect! That's exactly what I had in mind. I would recommend one of these for anyone who has not done SMT soldering before. As was said, will really help with the confidence levels.

    I bought one of these before I did my first board (the TRS) and it worked really well to get me used to soldering up the SMD components. It didn't come with all the right components though... Still good practice.

    LOL, if you can build that thing and get it working then ANY Eggtimer kit will be a snap. We make our pads a lot bigger than the standard SMT footprint... it makes it a lot easier to hand solder. All of our kits except for the TRS, Quark, and Eggfinder Mini use 1206's instead of 0805's too... they're so big you can almost solder them without a magnifier.

    Agreed! Moving to the TRS was a walk in the park compared to the small side on that hell board.
