Eggtimer Quark
« on: February 21, 2016, 07:35:55 PM »
Last year I picked up a little DIY altimeter kit for $20 from eggtimer rocketry. I have built several of their trackers and the standard eggtimer altimeter so I figured I would give this little thing a try. I built it to go into my Wildman Darkstar Mini dual deploy setup, which only has a 4" long 38mm coupler for an e-bay.

you use jumpers to change the deployment altitude and delay. about as easy as it gets. I have a couple flights on this and it performed as expected and beeped out the max altitude after the flight. Nice little altimeter for $20!

I didn't take a bunch of pictures of the build, but here it is all assembled


Here is the little sled for the DS Mini. I used 1/32" G10 fiberglass and aluminum hobby tube for the sled.


on the other side is a tiny 2 cell lipo battery and a modified screw switch from Missile Works.

Riley,
I love to see the other two photos but I can't get them to come up. I noticed with my XXtreme Blue build thread that I could only place one photo per post. Could that be why the second and third photo are only shown as a small box with an 'X' in it?
