Just bought a GV-1 off a fellow RR member...my question is...what do you use for the optical sensor to sense...What do I put on the fan so that it senses..I would guess some sort of reflective tape..but just know...any help would be apprreciated. Or is there anything included that I'm missing.

thanks

anything highly reflective that will stick to the
fan.

some fans are black plastic and people use
chrome Monokote trim. On aluminum fans,
some folks spray the back of the fan flat black
except for a strip left shiny aluminum.

the optical sensor emits a beam of light (usually
infrared) and senses any reflection of the beam.
It's actuallly a tiny light transmitter and receiver
in the same package.
