a. Ensure that the TRACKER MODE switch on the front of the DAU is in the NIGHT position.
b. Ensure that the underside, trailing edge of all blades is as clean as possible. This is necessary for optimum

The placement of the tape can be verified by holding a
flashlight near your head and shining it at the rotating
blades. Any misplaced sections of the tape will stand
c. Attach a single, 3-ft section of reflective tape on the underside, trailing edge of each blade as shown in figure
6. Ensure that the tape is smooth and as straight as possible using the edge of the blade as a reference.
