※※※ Caution ※※※
- This product contains mechanical parts which are weak to impact such as Buzzer, Battery and Switch.
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.
