Lost Plane Locator

I am flying a HobbyZone Aerobird.

It flew off into the woods never to be seen again. I ordered a new plane fuseloge and related parts. I would like to add some kind of a locator/beacon so if I lose the plane in the woods again, I can find it this time.

Anyone know of something that will work with the Aerobird? I have seen the Air Alert from Hobbico, the Woodworth Locator and the Arrow ELB (emergency locator beacon). However these are made to work with standard radio sysems. The Aerobird comes with a prepackaged 27 MHZ system.

Any ideas?

Hi,
I have used peizo alarm and personal alarms from radio shack.
A micro switch on a servo at max through can turn it on. Or just leave it on and attract more airplane trackers. Do a web search on peizo alarm for some ideas.
Regards,
Paul

I ordered a pair of these and will see how they work. I will test for distance and sound. If it is good I will mount one on the plane and hold the other.

We will see how it works.
