Experimental Line Reel Clip Locator
« on: April 01, 2020, 09:03:33 AM »
How many of us have lost a line reel clip at the field?
Here's MY answer to that.....
Prototype of my GPS locating line reel clip.  Shows promise. 3D printed of course!
The phone app is the hard part.
I envision different colors for different line diameters?
Green color for the foolish too.

Wel done Dave, I knew that Microchip processors have low power mode, but I did not know that April sun is enough to power them  ;D

How about a cleanup magnet.  Just be the last one to leave the pits and in a couple of contests you will have a lifetime supply. LL~

One set of lines and one handle for each airplane. Crist may have a dozen airplanes😊.

As far as power Igor, I know Dave is working on a dark matter energy extraction device that weighs -3g.
