Can you recieve thing from AliExpress/Banggood and such? If so I see no reason why the GT cannot be shipped to you

Since we found the short possibility issue when bypassing the springs on the Q8 I was wondering, does the GT have/need reverse polarity or short protection?

Thanks!

Not sure about the short circuit protection, but it does have polarity protection that is mechanical built into the battery carrier PCB…

Unless he lives in a very rural area , he should be able to receive just fine. Got a friend living in PH and he orders stuff from overseas all the time. They have a online store there called lazada so they should have the infrastructure to deliver parcels. Unless ArmedRN lives in the middle of a dense jungle. Big Smile

People actually read these??? Hi there.

I just learned Idaho parachute dropped beavers in the old days, so the PH got to be able to do something similar today with a flashlight in the jungle.
I recon arrange for a night drop and turn the GT on, that should make tracking of its beacon a cake walk, or the wildfire it might start after landing.

Well maybe I have missed one or two posts but in that case I would say he’s certainly earned his complimentary GT.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Yeah his video came out right about the time I ordered my second GT and since then orders have flowing in at at an unbelievable rate. Right around 400 more placed mostly because of that video.

It should have all five of the special Blinky modes just like the Q8. It’s going to have the latest version of NarsilM which is V1.2. which has a few upgrades, but should not remove any features.

My Convoy L6 thread with XHP70.2, Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil v1.2 ramping firmware, lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well.

Well should the need ever arise it would be nice to have the capability! LOL.

But in some seriousness if you happened to be lost on a mountain somewhere and need to signal for help or your location the beam and throw on the GT should get the searchers attention quite easily….. one heck of a Beacon beam!
