Servo Timer II update

Progress has been continuing on the Servo Timer II. I've received all the parts now and have started production of the timers. I've been doing some final tweaks on the firmware to try to cover the greatest range of servo timings, as well as adjusting the G-switch false trigger filter.


I'm going to do some final flight testing if the weather is good this weekend, and then finish the documentation. I'm mounting these inside a few new nosecones and will fit them to a number of rockets. These things have definitely taken a lot longer than I would have liked. Hopefully not long now before they are available.

Thanks guys. :) It's actually been quite fun doing the soldering. The test flights this weekend with the timers went well as well which is good. Just finishing a test jig now to verify the full operation of each timer.

Slavich77: Yes, we will deliver to all countries. :)
