Important Warnings

• Make sure you have the right transmitter for your area. You are responsible for determining

whether you may use your transmitter in your country! See the transmitter specifications below for
information on frequency and power output. In general, transmitters marked EU or CE are suitable
for use in Europe, and transmitters marked FCC are suitable for USA operation.

• It is very important that you range check your model per your radio manufacturer’s instructions

after installing or reconfiguring any electronic equipment, and generally before each operation. If
you have range issues, see the Troubleshooting section.

• The Seagull system is to be used only as described in the “Intended Uses” section below. Other uses

are not supported, and uses where loss of life or injury may result are expressly forbidden.

• Operating your model requires that you keep your eyes on it and give it your full attention. Looking

at the Seagull LCD display while the model is in operation is strongly discouraged. Use the
programmable audible alarms, or have a buddy look at the display, as necessary.
