GearLock prevents a retractable gears to retract if the aircraft is not airborne. For this, the moduel is connected between the receiver channel for the gear, and the gear itself.
The module has a LED for status information and a single button for setup.
If the aircraft is on the ground, the retraction of the gear is blocked by the module. A solid red LED indicates that the aircraft is on the ground and the gear switch is on DOWN position. If you now try to retract gear (bring gear switch on transmitter to UP position) the gear operation in blocked and the LED will blink slowly. In this case, gear operation is blocked even if the aircraft is now lifted from ground. First bring gear switch to DOWN position again to unlock gear operation. If the gear switch in brought back to DOWN position, the will be solid again. If the aircraft is not on ground, the LED will go off. Normal gear operation is now possible.
Extension of gear is always possible. Only retraction is blocked by the module.
