Revised Eggtimer Quantum Board

We've made a slight revision to the Eggtimer Quantum PC board, we've added a driver FET to the buzzer to make it louder.  The Assembly Guide has been revised to reflect this change, if you've downloaded and earlier version and you have an extra part and you're wondering what to do with it, please check out the new instructions.

Mandatory Software Update for Eggtimer Quantum

There is a MANDATORY software update for the Quantum on the Support/Downloads page, it addresses an issue that may prevent the Quantum from powering up and/or arming in cooler weather.  With the Fall and (for some...) Winter flying seasons approaching, you need to get this installed before you get out into the field...

Eggtimer Quantum WiFi-Enabled Flight Computer

The Eggtimer Quantum is the first WiFi-enabled flight computer on the market.  It offers two high-current deployment channels with tons of flexibility, records up to 15 flights, and has most of the other great features of the Eggtimer Classic Flight Computer, but with a twist - all of the programming, arming, and downloading are done wirelessly over WiFi.   No cable, Internet, or special apps required, all  you need is a WiFi device with a browser.  Due to its unique "dual-switched" output configuration,  you might not even need a power switch; the deployment outputs are essentially dead until near apogee, and the WiFi arming offers the same security as our popular WiFi Switch.

Eggtimer WiFi Switch

We've replaced the Eggtimer Remote Switch with a new WiFi enabled switch, with more range, higher power capability, bidirectional monitoring capability (it shows you the battery voltage and deployment igniter continuity), and best of all you don't need a separate remote.  It works with any WiFi/browser enabled device, and is VERY secure. Check it out, we think you'll be pleased with the improvements.

New Eggfinder TX B6 Version

We've made some highly-requested changes to the Eggfinder TX transmitter.  First, we've made the frequency programmable to match all 72 possible combinations that the Eggfinder LCD receiver can use.  You simply connect a 3-pin jumper cable (included) between your TX and your LCD receiver, program the frequency on the LCD, and they're both updated.  Second, we've eliminated the on-off push button, it turns on as soon as you connect the battery.  This makes it simpler to use, and prevents a minor power glitch from shutting down your TX.  We've added battery polarity immunity... no more hooking up the battery backwards and frying your GPS.  Finally, we've made all of the passive components SMT-mount, reduced the parts count, enlarged the GPS pads, and generally made the TX kit easier to build.

Eggtimer TRS Software Advisory (4/13/2015)


It has come to our attention that under some cases the drogue channel on the Eggtimer TRS may fail to fire when used in backup mode.  We have found and fixed the bug, please go to the Eggtimer TRS Support link and download the latest version (1.05A).
