This is from Rocketry Forum -- great for mid-power or using at Amesbury with a Jolly Logic for mid-power. And let's keep those rockets away from the power lines

The Eggtimer Apogee - A Very Simple Apogee-Deployment Altimeter

Eggtimer Rocketry is proud to announce the Eggtimer Apogee, the easiest and least expensive deployment altimeter on the market. In a tiny 1.75” x .9” package that fits into a 24mm motor mount, the Apogee deploys your parachute at apogee and beeps out your altitude, with no programming of any kind. It has a built-in NAR/TRA-approved screw switch, and an on-board JST-PH battery connector for small 1S LiPo batteries. It’s the ideal companion for a Jolly Logic Chute Release™ because it does the things that the JLCR cannot… get the parachute out and tell you how high you went.

Like other Eggtimer Rocketry products, it’s sold as a kit… you put it together, just like your rockets. It’s the easiest-building kit that we sell, with almost all through-hole parts… easy enough for a beginner.

Also available is a special 3D-printed Easy Mount for the Eggtimer Apogee (designed by Chris Bender of Lab Rat Rocketry), it makes it a snap to install an Apogee into most 38mm or larger nose cones. It can be easily interchanged from one rocket to another, and includes a built-in charge well and terminal screws. It’s designed to use a tiny 110 mAH 1S LiPo battery, which Eggtimer Rocketry will also be sourcing.

The Eggtimer Apogee is available now, for the special introductory price of $12 (it lists for $15), until October 18th. The 110 mAH 1S battery is $5... it MUST be purchsed with an Eggtimer Apogee (due to shipping regulations I can't ship them separately without serious hassles). The Easy Mount will be available in a few weeks... price TBD, but it will be competitive with similar 3D-printed mounts on the market.

As usual, thanks for all your support!
