Here's a link to a FM-9 manual - http://www.aeromaniacs.com/public/pdf/FM-9-overview.pdf

It has the address and email at the bottom if that helps.

There is a simpler one here- http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...-timer-EFLA172

Also you could try - http://brodak.com/electric.html

Interesting info..
the 1st one is erm 'pricey' @$80 given that one also needs an esc and likely extra add-ons
2nd one seems as a reasonable to experiment with gizmo imo.
Time set; LVC left to the rc ESC and retract deployment at end of run.. wasn't sure what brings the retracts up though?
Still like the idea of a Rx and control handle thumb controls
Complete sophisticated 2.4ghz systems can be had for $15 !

There are many of us using cheap 2.4GHz radios to run the throttle on our C/L planes. It's not yet legal to do so for competition in most classes/countries though it seems to be coming. So wanting to compete is probably the best reason for using a timer but good ones certainly are expensive.
