The Loc8tor Lite is a small 2.4G based location system with a realistic working range of a few hundred feet. With that expectation in mind, it's a great tool for finding your models when you know the approximate area you went down. It's not suitable for long range recoverybut it is valuable for close range FPV flying when disorientation can happen quickly.
The Loc8tor tags are tiny units that remain in a passive state until activated by the handheld device. Battery life in non-active state is several months. When activated, the tags emit a signal that is picked up by the highly directional antenna within the handheld device, giving you a visual and audio indication of which direction the signal is coming from. The tag also chirps when active.
Object penetration is the same as 2.4G signals - it does penetrate doors and walls. There is no interference with 2.4 video or control systems.
The Loc8tor Lite kit comes with the handset and 2 tags. Extra tags are available. Each handset can 'bind' to 4 tags.
Handset runs on the common CR2032 battery and tags use a pair of V390 or equivalent.
