Where can I purchase KR Timers?
« on: May 20, 2023, 03:36:34 AM »
I am having difficulty finding a source for KR Timers.  I got mine in the past from Mike at RSM, but he has been out of stock for awhile.
I sent him an email last week, but haven't received a reply yet.  Any help is appreciated.

I just looked at the RSM web sight.  Only the older KR Governor ver.1.2 is out of stock.  The newer KR Governor Ver.2 is in stock.  However it will not work with the 1.2 program stick.  So if you buy the Ver.2 you should buy the combo that has the program stick included unless you already have a Ver.2 program stick.   D>K

PS you could call them (951) 678-1406

When you attempt to purchase any KR Timer on the RSM Website, a triple *** appears that states not enough in stock to fill your order.  Does anyone have another source for the KR Timer?

Thanks,

Don

Hi Guys,
Mike ordered a good amount from me and they were sent just recently. The parcel arrived last Friday at RSM according to the tracking website, so please check with Mike again.

Finding the processor chips for the last few years has been difficult and the particular PIC chip that I use is being made obsolete by Microchip. Two years ago they recommended an updated processor but were unable to supply. Since the Covid fiasco, almost everything has been screwed up with raw materials and stuff being in short supply. I have now (two days ago) managed to get the new chip and they should arrive this week and I'll start testing. Hopefully the supply of timers will not be an issue going forward.

Just for some information, I have now sold just over 2 000 timer systems since I started the project, so it has done very well. Thanks to all that supported me. I also really appreciate the support on this forum where a few guys regularly help others with queries on the KR Timer system. I hate to mention names because we always leave out others, but I would like to thank John Rist for helping many with his good knowledge and understanding of my system. I have not been that active on this forum for a while. I've had numerous health issues but I'm a lot better now so I'll endevour to spend more time here.
Regards,
Keith R

A Question concerning RSM.  I placed my order on 7-14 for the in stock Ver 2 combo.  My CC has not been charged, but order is pending.  I sent Mike an email asking the problem. No reply.  Does anyone have any info as to what the issue is? Vacation maybe?

I see now that Mike is having medical issues, and all orders are cancelled @ RSM.  My best regards and hope the best for him.  Now what to use to replace the KR timer/governor?

I have worked with the Climb and Dive timer.  I haven't  flown it yet but it appears to work well.  It has many features that are similar to the KR timer.   However it comes as a kit and needs some assembly requiring soldering skills.  It can be found at 

https://circuitflyer.com/

Also their is a couple of threads on this board talking about them.

Hi John, I saw that, but soldering skills at that level are out.  I eventually went with the Hubin from Brodak.  I liked the KR because of the 2-4-2 accel/decel feature.  But, the Hubin should work for my simple flight needs.
