    Hey what you guys think of this.
    I've build this in 5 min with and arduino uno.It use 315mhz so will not broadcast too far or shouln'd interfere with quad I think but don't quote me on this still in r&d lol.Anyway it works with a 4 channel little remote you click the button and it make very loud high pitch noise.I was thinking when you are looking at the trees or bushes for it.Anyway just a little idea i had.I am using a cordless phone battery wich 3 of them 2 in parallel and 1 in seriea should give me the juice i need.Since they are rechargable could be usefull i guess.Sorry about my awesome syntax english is not my first language.

    OMG, your battery wires look like they are shorted. Did that battery get a little warm?

    Give us the results when you mount and fly with your device.

    Yes I will!I need to finish the coding and get the smallest arduino board the tinyduino and mount it in something that can take all the electronics plus the batteries but still small enough no to impact the weight!

    As far as container, post a pic of the final device when you are done or almost done. With dimensions. Then we can dream a little.

    2cm large by 6cm long by 1cm high withou a box that what the whole right would be without the battery.So need to figure if i want to mount the battery inside or outside on the landing skid.
