Default Reverse stop watch?

Is there such a thing as a reverse stop watch? I know I get 4.6 minutes at of my slowstick. I don't like to land without throttle, my esc cuts out the power when the power is low, so if I had a reverse stop watch I would set it for 4 minutes, it would beep when it got to zero, and then I would come in for a landing... any ideas???[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/img]

If i understand what your problem is exactly, coulnt you just use a digital egg timer to count down your time on the lfights?? You could ste the timer for 4.6 minutes an just wait until it beeps at you.

Yes true, I have thought of that, but would prefer something digital that I can hang around my neck.

I bought a "BIG time " countdown Timer / stopwatch. It operates on 1 AA cell. It is 3 inches, by 3 inches, and 1 inch thick. The only drawback is in a pocket, you push the buttons and stop it. It would hang to metal, or stand up in different positions. It beeps 30 seconds when the set time elapses. If you set it for "0" and start it, it counts up to 99 minutes 59 seconds, then turns off without a beep. It was bought at Wall Mart, kitchen miscellaneous stuff.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]
