Walston Retrieval Systems
770-434-4905 / Smyrna, GA
I've been shipping these systems for finding planes and rockets for over 20 years now. The systems have been used in everything from free flight and radio controlled aircraft to rockets. The transmitters use special crystals built to withstand up to 20,000 G's and have survived some absolutely devastating crashes without harm. The MODA 238 MVS long range transmitter weighs 3.5 grams with batteries and can be used in the smallest model aircraft or rockets. Using the TRX-3S Receiver, the signal can be picked up on the ground 2 to 2 1/2 miles away! The line of sight range is 15 to 20 miles and 20 to 90 miles air range and 2 to 9 miles ground range.
