  Therefore, it is very important that the installation is done so that the direct impact of these parts do not be applied when drone falls.

- Please refer to the installation example at the top to optimize it for your own drone.

- Never remove the silicone tube from the auxiliary buzzer connector(BUZ-CON) when not using the auxiliary buzzer.

  Do not connect any devices intentionally or accidentally to the auxiliary buzzer connector(BUZ-CON).

  The buzzer may not sound when connected.
