miniBip : detailed user manual
Setup : Make a lark’s head knot with the attachment line to secure the miniBip.
- Pass the small loop of the attachment line through the handle of the miniBip.
- Pass the other end of the line (large loop) inside the small loop.
Installation : 2 adhesive velcro loop patches are supplied with the miniBip in order to attach it to your equipment. (the device is pre-equiped with velcro hooks on the back).
You can stick one velcro on the back of your helmet, and if necessary, stick/sew the second one on the strap of your harness, or use the two loop velcros taped together around a riser.
Note : Installation on the harness shoulder strap is recommended.
On the helmet, make sure you always place the miniBip at the back of the helmet, and not on the side, so as to avoid having incoherent beeps due to relative wind variations (for example when the pilot turns his head).

Note: If the LED flashes red every 3 seconds, the battery is empty, the miniBip needs to be recharged.
