Eventually, it WILL
save your aircraft...
If you let it.
Sooner or later, we all experience the kind of problems that cause unexpected disasters. Lack of early warning is the real problem! That's why the GEM 2000 is as necessary to have onboard as a good battery pack. It gives you peace of mind! It makes flying, driving and boating more carefree, fun and most importantly, safe!

Automatically monitors onboard status of battery pack and electronic systems. When the receiver switch is activated, the Gem 2000 continually monitors most everything in the system not connected to the engine. Critical to safe operation is the battery pack. An external meter check does not provide information on what your entire system in operation is doing to the pack. A binding servo causes an excessive "load" that can cause an unexpected power failure shortly into a flight. A switch could be going bad or an intermittent RX problem could be occurring. Any number of things can go wrong with a battery pack or radio system that causes a disaster if not warned in time. In real-time the Gem 2000 will detect and alert you to most of these potential problems during a pre-flight check. And if a battery pack problem develops during flight, it will alert you in time to safely land.
This rugged ABS enclosed "Solid State" multi-tasking passive safety instrument plugs or "Y" adapts into any RX slot. When RX switch is active, it continually analyzes, detects and warns of current or impending problems in up to 7 areas of system operations (depending on radio technology) plus indicates RX "on/off" status. An exceptionally brilliant LED indicates a "Go/No Go" status during pre-operational safety check. In flight, it continually advises on the condition of the battery pack and advises when it is time to land. For vehicles and boats, it warns of low battery pack condition to help eliminate runaways.
The GEM 2000 is superior to using an external battery checker or meter because it is continually watching what the onboard system "load" factor is doing to the health of the battery pack; warns of unnecessary and excessive "loading" on the pack due to servo stalling, binding and jamming; comes factory calibrated for all popular battery packs ranging from 4.8v to 7.4 volts; is fully user programmable over the full operating range of from 4.0 to 10.0 volts; and is compatible with all RC Radio technologies - FM/PPM, PCM & Spectrum 2.4 gHz. and compatible with all battery chemistries - NiCd, NiMH, LFE (A-123) LiPo, Li-Ion up to 10 volts.
Aside from pilot error, nearly all RC crashes are absolutely preventable... if warned in time! Pilot, or operator error (sometimes referred to as "dumb thumbs"), is the greatest cause of crashing a model. However, many other factors can result in unexpected disaster, with power failure topping the list. The best and most reliable way to always know what's happening with your model is to equip it with a precision warning instrument. The Gem 2000 will warn you in time to 7 of the 8 most common causes of crashing. Whenever the RX switch is active, the brilliant LED indicator will flash with a steady, even pattern at 5hz (approx. 5 flashes per second). As long as the flash pattern remains steady and even and the servos are quiet, all systems are "go" for flight or operation. If not, then there is a problem somewhere. Depending on what the LED and/or the servos are doing, the G2K will alert you to where in the system the problem is originating: battery pack, RX, switch, servos, etc. For example, if the flashing LED turns to solid glowing, it means at that particular "load" condition there is approximately 25% flying time left. When the "load" is reduced, the LED starts flashing again. If it frequently turns solid or remains solid glowing... land. There's nothing to interpret or think about. It's a "no brainer"!
If it doesn't, we'll replace it. We don't care what happens to it, how it happens, where it happens or who did it. If your dog ate it and it just didn't come out the same on the other side, just send it back. Well, hmmm... that's a tough one. We'll have to think about that. Anyway, every GEM 2000 you buy is guaranteed for life.
