Hellgate FPV buzzer
The next confidence boosting piece of gear is here. Whether you are about to join the nerve wrecking long-range club in the 2018, or you hate the way you feel when you can’t find your quad after it crashed and the lipo was ejected, we are here to help you get your smile on your face. With our little gadget that is almost as small and light as your regular buzzer the issue with ejected or drained lipo won’t bother you anymore.
- Buzzer unit
- 3x 10cm silicon wire (black, red, white)
- 2x spare heat shrink
- Sticker to show how awesome device you have, to protect your gear
The buzzer connects to your flight controller via 3 cables. Simply solder them to your flight controller accordingly to the labels.
5V to your buzzer+ pad or 5V BEC output
BUZ- to your buzzer ground pad on FC
GND to ground on FC
- After connecting the main battery, the buzzer is automatically activated and set to armed mode.
- While the battery is connected it acts as a standard buzzer which can be controlled by your flight controller (so you can turn it on/off via transmitter to find your aircraft)
- After you finish your pack and disconnect your main battery the buzzer will go to pre-alarm state for 60 seconds – indicated by a quiet “clicking” sound to indicate its state so you have enough time to either plug in another pack or disarm the buzzer
- To disarm the buzzer simply connect and disconnect the main battery for a short period of time (1s – 4s) and you will hear the disarm confirmation tone after you unplug.
Alarm style and duration
The beeping pattern of the buzzer varies with time
|First minute||1min-2hours||2hours-6hours||6hours-72hours||72hours-2week (estimate)|
|Silent “clicking”||Beeps every 2s||Beeps every 5s||Beeps every 10s||Beeps every 30s|
Note: The buzzer has a protective anti-cycle protection function which protects itself from being deactivated by dying battery, which can cause the 5V circuit to be on and off in a pattern that could cause the buzzer to disarm. After an anti-cycle protection was triggered, you must plug in the main battery for at least 10 seconds to deactivate the protection and then you will be able to disarm the buzzer manually
Battery note: The buzzer is shipped with battery charged to a storage voltage. The battery is charged while flying. It will gain its full charge after approximately 2 hours of flight or you can connect the FC to a USB (if it powers the 5V rail or Buzzer+ pad – depends on where you soldered the 5V connection)
