Pal of mine - we discussing my idea of stand alone Lost Model Alarm and problems of existing where main power gets ejected and then the LMA is dead.

He suggested this attached below.

Basically the LMA - one of the inline versions (idea will not work with the switched versions) where it sits between Rx and servo and detects lack of signal change.

You power the LMA by a single 1S LiPo and have the servo power bypass the LMA. If power is lost to Rx ... the LMA is still powered by the 1S LiPo and signal being lost - should trigger the LMA .........

I shall be testing this idea ... the question is whether the 1S is enough ... and whether the loss of Signal itself will trigger the LMA.
