Building my Voyager 50, I noticed I wont be able to see thru the windshield/canopy, I would need to see the Voltwatch (could instaed be installed on one side) but what about the GY401... I need to see the light (part of the preflight checks)

How do you guys deal with that ? Remove the canopy ? Drill a small hole and peek in there ?

Thanks..

I mounted my GY401 in the back, you can see it from the outside. The Voltwatch is mounted on the side in back of the switch allowing you to see that also.

My GY401 is under a velcro strap so I can't see the light anyway. I use the rudder 'kick' as the indication that all is well.
I mounted the Valtwatch on the side near the power switch.

You can put the Voltwatch in the garbage can; it’s a liar anyway.



The less time I have the more I get done.

I agree on the Valt watch. I threw mine out.

I use the BC6 http://www.yntdesign.com/files/prod...ics/bc6/bc6.htm

It records the LOWEST voltage under load during flight. Its great.

Green or Blue Gem 2000 works great! mount it under the canopy so you can see it out a window or get the remote model with longer wire and tie it below the canopy
