The Flytec Balloon 4 is a sensitive instrument – handle it gently. Always store it in its cloth bag when not in use, and only wipe it clean with a soft, damp cloth. Never expose the Flytec Balloon 4 to extreme temperatures, water, or high mechanical forces.
In the event your Flytec Balloon 4 locks up, you may perform a hard reboot by removing the batteries for 5 minutes before replacing them and restarting the device.
If exposed to water
The Flytec Balloon 4 is not water resistant! Exposure to water or any other liquid will cause serious damage. If your Flytec Balloon 4 gets wet, remove the batteries immediately to prevent more damage. If your Flytec Balloon 4 was exposed to salt water, rinse it in warm, clean, fresh water. Dry your Flytec Balloon 4 thoroughly and return it to your vendor or directly to Volirium for servicing.
Volirium provides a 2-year limited warranty on all our flight instruments, which covers all manufacturing defects. To ensure that we treat this correctly, include your purchase receipt or invoice when sending in your vario.
