    What is the best product you have seen for "reward if found" stickers for batteries and bird? Just curious.

    Thanks all. Seems to be the most economical way in an expensive hobby.

    I use a different system.

    Every time I fly it, I have a boom box near me with a nice and loud opera ready to play. If the phantom runs away, I’ll turn on the boom box at full volume. I figure the phantom will immediately head for it.:)

    Nice! Almost as good as tying a string to the landing gear like I do.
    When it runs away, I just pull the string and bring it back. :)

    Printing it for nothing makes the most sense. Put some clear tape over it (in case it goes down and then it rains)

    The best sticker design I've seen looked "official". It looked like some sort of government property without lying as such. Supposedly, people might be more inclined to return if they see it, instead of whetting at the mouth when you start talking about rewards.

    I was actually looking for something that looks "official" in hopes of getting it back.

    I bought several sheets of "decal film" a clear film with a paper back that floats off when placed briefly in water. I originally bought it for another application (placing my granddaughters signature on a ukulele I made for her) but found it worked great for a label on my Phantom.

    I haven't put this on my Phantom yet but am considering it. I googled "fake USA seals" and put that on.

    It's only purpose is to stop random stoners from selling it on Craigslist.

    Cool but if I found something like that I would tend to run it through my trash compactor. Or at a minimum cut it into small pieces and put it in my neighbors trash can.

    Good luck when you get caught by a fed misrepresenting the seal of the U.S. A new bird may be less expensive.
