TEXAS TIMERS WILL BE CLOSED FOR OVER A MONTH FROM 3rd WEEK IN MAY TO FIRST OF JULY. PLAN YOUR NEEDS ACCORDINGLY. I WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE BY PHONE OR EMAIL. I SINCERELY HOPE THIS ABSENCE WILL NOT BE AN INCONVENIENCE TO THOSE PLANNING TO ATTEND OUR NATS IN JULY. I WILL DO MY BEST TO ACCOMODATE URGENT NEEDS IN EARLY JULY, BUT EXPECT TO BE VERY BUSY.
IMPORTANT NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCMENTS
We take great pleasure to announce two new products to our electronic timer line.
An important new pin (for ESC and
Servo connections) configuration has been added to our line. This is called
the H model for Horizontal. Up til now, we have offered the Straight
pins which extend perpendicular to the board and the Right Angle which had
the pins parallel to the board and pointing upward. We now have the H which
provides a reduced depth and reduced top and bottom space needs. You can see
the H board HERE
The F1Q fliers have been using this for over a year but we never made a formal announement. Briefly, the MF model (for Multi Function) offers the ability to have up to four (4) servo movement, so this is DT plus up to three more functions. these functions can be before or after the termination of the motor. Plus, the MF has a provision for the EL (Energy Limiter) function when the motor run time is actually controlled by the real energy consumed during the run. Some feel this gives and advantage in altitude. In addition, the MF can have a remote switch to start the flight from a switch located remote to the timer. Like a javalin type launch. Of course, RDT is also available, as with our other timers. The MF comes standard with a Data Port as this is how the added functions are set using a PC. This timer will only be of interest to the more advanced fliers in F1Q or perhaps in AMA Electric B.
To clarify a prior announcement, I must retract offering an EL product made by Dick Ivers. After a spate of orders, Dick has infromed me that they are way too hard/time consuming to make to his exacting standards and I am not to accept any more orders. To those lucky ones, you will have the most accurate EL available. No more orders will be accepeted. Unless I can convience Dick to change his decision after the 2017 flying season.

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
