Cheap Location Trackign Anonymous 07/07/14(Mon)06:51 UTC+1 No.663725 Report

Is there something cheap I can use to track location of something with GPS or maybe some type of remote that will lead me to the thing? I am tired or searching for my quadcopter when my friend loses it.

Depending on the range, something like a remote activated horn/alarm or radio homing setup might be cheaper.

Wireless lamp switch, but use it to control a little 9 volt buzzer. Everything should be available at Radio Shack

Add some small normally-open lever switches to the landing pads (or whatever it uses) and use them to control a small battery operated buzzer.

When the quadcopter is on the ground, the switches should close and sound the buzzer.

It's not theirs, they have no concern about it, and they know because you're a friend you will not curb stomp them for crashing it into the middle of a lake. Grow a fucking pair and tell him to fuck off and buy his own.

How big is the quadcopter? The usual go-to for tracking vehicles and balloons is a Motorola i290 prepaid phone and the instamapper App.

If it's small, Option B is a circuit that beeps loudly when the throttle is off. I want one of these for my son's heli. Let me know if you find one.
