I am looking for a timing system. Want to start timing laps and distances from a to b. I have been looking and there are some good options out there. I have not yet fund one that does it all. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. And one big weakness is prices. They all cost what a good solid complete premium board cost. And then I thought, it most be possible to DIY. To make a simple timing system that is possible to operate one person only.
I fund this Free lap which also works with a chip, and if Its only for one person it is substantially lower in price. This could be a good starting point even though the two others are more appealing to me.
Anyone here know of other systems that can be used, or have the knowledge to tell be if it would be easy and cheaper to make it DIY? If I choose to DIY I am thinking of a photocell option.
