Texas Timers .020 works great. They can be rigged for quick DT. I use them on my 1/2A planes. If you buy one, be sure to get some of his silicone tubing.

There is a batch of timers on eBay now-

Maybe the Sting Aero Smoothie viscous timer would be sufficient.

I always remember a KSB timer being 30 shillings (£1.50/$2.25) - about the same price as an 049 engine.

We used to use rubber bands and string.

Light the string, blow out the flame and then let it slow burn. When it reached the rubber band, it melted and the tail popped up - pulled by another rubber band.

This was known as a DT fuse!
