hi, me again!

after spending ages walking around the field looking for my drone, I have decided it is time to fit a lost alarm.

I have a spf3 flight controller, which has to holes where I could solder some wires too, but I have noticed some buzzers have 3 wires on a plug that would match the speed controller outputs...

how do I programme it in cleanflight to run from the 3 pins rather than soldering more wires as that's my weak point?

or have I got the wrong idea of all this.

thanks

Ray

Ray,

I really wish you would. I think it's interesting to see what others are doing and what they're encountering. I've put up a few but they don't seem to get much play by other members.

How does a buzzer work if the quad is "misplaced" and if you didn't program a switch to activate it?

The buzzer can be programmed to activate when there is a lost signal without activating a switch. Many ESC's can be as well.
