"Lost Model Alarm" (British "humor")

Although I'm sure this is meant to be absolutely serious, it really struck me as humorous: www.customelectronics.co.uk/

Probably has something to do with being a newbie and American...

I Kinda get it

It could be considered useful, especially if you fly around a corn field like I do. There were a couple good lines in the copy I found amusing.

"...each with a pair of ear plugs included." This is good, I like that. As you get closer, you may need them at 140dB!

"...this lost model alarm will sound when signal is lost or when invalid signals are seen." Does this include when you are flying inverted, and mean to give down elevator when it should have been up? That would be considered an invalid signal, right?

"Up to 30 hrs operation from RC battery." If anyone has lost a plane in a corn field, forrest, or similar, this shoud be just about enough time to find the darn thing.

Now I'm even more confused. I get a page that has pictures of around eight electronic products that flash in sequence. None of them are labeled. The only products mentioned in text are Electronic magnifiers for low vision.

As to lost plane finders, I had one on my plane when I flew glow at a field that was surrounded by corn or soybeans. It was essential for me since at least half my landings were in the "rough."
