TEXAS DT TIMER
Click on the picture above for a closer look.If DT reliability, accuracy, safety, and ease of use are important, then the TEXAS DT is for you. It provides times in the 0 to 8-minute range. The timer uses a threaded scroll with a stiff release wire, so that significant line tension can be used. "Ears" are incorporated into the scroll to make winding and setting easy. The reliable Texas "Stoplock" start/stop trip wire is used. The timer is repeatable within " 5 seconds in the under 5 minute range. Modelers now have a solution to missed maxes and lost planes due to fuse problems. Minimal mounting area is required by the 2.0" x 0.76" faceplate and the weight is less than 17 grams.
