I have some of the Lost Model beepers that connect between servo and Rx ... I don't like them !!

I tried them and once activated - you are supposed to be able to reset them by moving the surface .. well mine didn't ! So I'd power up ... 1 minute later BEEP BEEP BEEP ... and I couldn't stop it. Didn't matter whether I moved surface or not ... BEEP BEEP BEEP ...

Stu's switchable seems a much better idea !!

My way at present is to use the ESC arming beep. If I cannot find the model .. I switch of TX ... wait few sec's ... some of my ESC's then BEEP at about 5 sec intervals to indicate no signal ... for others I just then switch back on Tx and I hear the boot-up beeps ...

I know - not best way - but lets be honest - most times you can't find the model - she's crashed or had a bad arrival !!
