RC Lost Model Tracker
The tracker was designed specifically to aid in locating lost RC model aircraft
Flying over grass, crops or trees. Flying powered models, gliders or multirotors.
This picture is from a video recorded on a FPV model that was searching for a missing Multiplex Easyglider. After 5 days of searching the weather turned bad and we gave up. This prompted the development of the lost model tracker. The Easyglider was big and white; a multirotor would have been impossible to spot from the air. FPV models can cover a bit more ground than traditional models. A good reason to install a lost model tracker.
The antenna and beeper to the right.
The jumper and servo connector to the left.
The battery is inside under the hearshrink.
Install it in the model so as to have the best chance of surviving the crash :)
This is the standard enclosed receiver we make to match the tracker.
You can use some types of radio scanner to receive the tracker signals.
There are many options for antennas. We supply this one because it is simple, light weight, easy to ship, and it works quite well. You supply the wooden boom (about 700mm long).
Other options include DIY construction, and off the shelf products designed for the HAM 70cm band.
The jumper extension lead allows the jumper to be outside the model while the tracker is safely mounted inside.
Spare parts are available. Including jumpers, leads, piezo beepers and covering heatshrink.
