POSTAGE COSTS!

WELL, THE US POST OFFICE HAS REALLY SCREWED US SMALL SHIPPERS THIS TIME. FOR ME TO SEND A SMALL 4 OUNCE BOX TO A US CUSTOMER I HAVE TO WEIGH THE BOX, LOG INTO THE POSTAL SOFTWARE AND ENTER IN THE ZIP CODE AND WEIGHT AND IT WILL TELL ME WHAT THE POSTAGE IS. AND, IT WILL NOT BE SOME NICE ROUND NUMBER, IT WILL BE SOMETHING SOMEONE PULLED OUT OF THEIR A**. THEN, I HAVE TO GO TO THE PO AND EITHER STAND IN LINE OR HOPE MY CREDIT CARD WORKS IN THEIR NORMALLY MALFUNCTIONING ROBOT DISPENSER.  NOT KNOWING ME, I AM DISABLED AND WALKING IS PAINFUL FOR ME. I AM AT THE POINT OF CLOSING MY DOORS DUE TO THE USPS. THAT OR I WILL JUST RAISE MY RATES SO ALL PAY THE SAME AND I CAN ELIMINATE ALL THE HASSLE. I WISH I COULD BLAME THIS ON OUR IDIOT PRESIDENT,  BUT NO, IT IS CONGRESS THAT ALLOWED THEM TO DO THIS.

SORRY FOR THE RANT BUT THIS IS BEYOND MAD. ON TOP OF ALL, THE POSTAL WEBSITE IS DOWN! SO I AM FORCED TO GO TO THE POST OFFICE AND STAND IN LINE.  THANK YOU US POSTAL SYSTEM! I BET YOU HAVE MADE AMAZON AND ALL THE BIG SHIPPERS HAPPY WHILE SCREWING ME. AS SOON AS I GET OFF THE CEILING, I WILL FIGURE OUT WHAT I WILL DO IN THE WAY OF NEW HIGHER RATES FOR SHIPPING. GRRRRRR

IMPORTANT NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCMENTS

We take great pleasure to announce two new  products to our electronic timer line.

  1.  An important new pin (for ESC and Servo connections) configuration has been added to our line. This is called the H model for Horizontal. We now have the H which provides a reduced depth and reduced top and bottom space needs. You can see the H board HERE
     

  2. The F1Q fliers have been using this for over two years but we never made a formal announcement. Briefly, the MF model (for Multi Function) offers the ability to have up to four (4) servo movements, so this is DT plus up to three more functions. Plus, the MF has a standard a provision for the EL (Energy Limiter) function when the motor run time is actually controlled by the real energy consumed during the run. In addition, the MF can have a remote switch to start the flight, like with a javalin type launch. Of course, RDT is also available, as with our other timers. This timer will only be of interest to the more advanced fliers in F1Q or perhaps in AMA Electric B.


LARGE NUMBER OF ENGINES FOR SALE

I have over 75 gas and ignition engines for sale. All graded and listed in an Excel spreadsheet. Willing to sell for fair prices. Not give away and not outrageous. These are from my personal stash purchased mostly for runners. If interested in the list, send me an email and I will return a copy of the list to you. <txtimer@tn.net>

TEXAS TIMERS - WHO ARE WE?

The Texas Timer product line was developed to meet the needs of free flight today.  As new requirements emerge, we strive to fulfill them, either through design enhancements of current products or development of new ones.  We always welcome your suggestions.

The heart of any timer is the clock mechanism used to drive it. All Texas Timers (except the MICRO I) use the same light-weight, but all metal gear mechanism.  Springs and pawls are selected to achieve optimum performance and torque for each application. As a modeler, you will appreciate the reliability, accuracy, and durability of all our products, in addition to their well thought-out design.

The MICRO I uses a plastic clock mechanism that was built for us to our specifications by a firm we selected after a three year search and test program.

All products use the exclusive Texas Stoplock that actually latches the trip wire in the off position, yet ensures a very positive start action.  Instructions for installation, use and maintenance are included with every Texas Timer product.

We understand that whether you sport fly or are engaged in serious competition, the timer is a key element in your enjoyment and success.  It should perform tirelessly and flawlessly for you, flight after flight.  Texas Timers are designed, tested, and assembled to meet these requirements.

We are pleased to accept these methods for payment as well as personal checks, money orders, and cash
