E36 Timer Info
Bill - There is an extensive E36 discussion going on in the NFFS Online Forum at http://www.freeflight.org/phpBB2/index.php
Thanks for your interest.
Yes, I have been building and flying F1Q timers for some time now. There are two models:
1. E-6; does not have manual switches ..... $60 plus shipping
2. E-7; has manual switches .$70 plus shipping
The difference is that E-6 requires a Palm handheld computer to set flight adjustments in the field. E-7 can be flown without a Palm just by moving small switches on the board. There are other subtlties that I can explain later. For the E-6 you will need a cable to connect the timer to Palm. It will also work with a laptop or desktop computer, but this requires a different cable
E-6 could be considered equivalent to the Morrell Magic Timer. Has the same functions and uses standard 2.54 mm servo connectors. The functions are:
The current standard software uses one servo to move to 3 different lever release positions corresponding to VIT, AR, and DT.
E-7 has the same functions, but use smaller 1.25 mm connectors.
I have some photos of both timers if you are interested.
