+ What is the proper way to open PowerPlane™

To open PowerPlane™, grip close to the center and then gently slide the left half open until it clicks. Then, reposition your left hand back back to the center and gently slide the right half open until it clicks. Next, grab the Sonic Sensor from the back of the unit. Push the on button on the top of the Sonic Sensor and the red power light will illuminate and flash slowly indicating that the unit is on and ready for use.

PowerPlane™ was engineered to handle excessive force by allowing the telescoping arm/s to slide off. If this occurs, simply re-attach.

+ How do I turn PowerPlane™ off?

Slide the two halves of the ground unit closed and it will power off. The Sonic Sensor has a power button you can use to power off and will also shut down on its own after one hour to conserve battery life. Remember to store the Sonic Sensor in the back of the ground unit.

+ Where/How do I attach the Sonic Sensor?

Each product comes with either a magnetic hat clip or a magnetic strip.

If you received the magnetic strip:

For a RH golfer, insert included magnetic strip (with silver disc magnets facing outward) into inner band on left side of hat directly above ear. LH golfers place into right side of hat. Make sure hat is tight on your head. Now, attach the Sonic Sensor to the magnetic strip over the hat so that the sensor faces forward along the brim.

If you received the hat clip:

First, attach the hat clip to your hat. For a RH golfer, the clip should be placed on the left side of the hat directly above the left ear. For a LH golfer, above the right ear. Now, attach the Sonic Sensor to the magnetic hat clip so that the sensor faces forward along rim of hat.

+ Where do I place PowerPlane™ for use?

With PowerPlane™ on, align the unit so that it is facing you with the green arrow pointing toward your target. Place a ball 1 to 2 feet from the unit and take your stance. Neither the ball nor you need to be positioned in the center of PowerPlane™.

+ How do I know if PowerPlane™ is set up for a RH or LH golfer?

Before PowerPlane™ sets the active planes, it prompts you to look toward your target by flashing a green arrow that points toward the target (for RH golfers, it will be the arrow on the left). If the flashing green arrow is pointing toward the target, PowerPlane™ is set up properly for your dexterity. If not, simply use the target setting button to switch it.

+ How do I let PowerPlane™ know I am ready to swing?

PowerPlane™ lets you control the pace at which you hit balls. After each shot, PowerPlane™ shows you whether or not your head was in the zone at impact and then resets. Once you see the blinking green arrow, when you are ready, look toward the target for two seconds, then look back down at the ball. PowerPlane™ will now set the planes, and show you it is ready by illuminating all four blue lights. If the green light is still blinking, try looking away again for at least two seconds.

+ How do I reset the planes?

Simply look away to your target for two seconds and PowerPlane will reset the planes to the proper position.

+ How do I know what mode I am in?

PowerPlane™ has four modes. To change modes, push the mode button located on the back of the unit. The first time you hit the mode button it will indicate the current mode. Pressing the button repeatedly will cycle through the additional modes. The mode is indicated by the number of illuminated blue lights and beeps.

+ How can I change volume, mode, and target (RH/LH)?

On the back side of the unit you will find three buttons labeled volume, mode and target. Push the appropriate setting button to cycle through the beep volume levels, plane modes, or target direction indicator.

+ Can PowerPlane™ be used in high winds?

PowerPlane™ uses advanced technology to accurately sense the moment of impact in a wide variety of conditions. High or gusty winds may make the device think it detected impact. In addition, high winds may also interfere with the ultrasonic technology and not allow the planes to set.

+ What happens if my PowerPlane™ gets wet?

PowerPlane™ has been designed to protect all of its electronics from water in normal use in an outdoor environment. It is not designed to be submerged.

+ Does temperature affect the performance of PowerPlane™?

PowerPlane™ works best when the temperature is above 45 degrees.

+ Is special care required when using PowerPlane™ outdoors?

PowerPlane™ uses a sleek, telescoping design which makes it both durable and portable. You can use PowerPlane™ anywhere including grass, mats, indoors and anywhere on the course. With proper care, it should provide years of enjoyment. When you use PowerPlane™ in outdoor environments, we suggest wiping off any debris that may land on the unit while practicing. This will prevent sand or dirt from getting stuck in the telescoping arms and help to minimize surface scratches.

+ How long should the batteries last?

PowerPlane™ comes with batteries installed and ready for use. The batteries should last over 300 hours of use. The Sonic Sensor is designed to automatically shut itself off after 60 minutes of use to prevent inadvertent battery wear.

+ What type of batteries does PowerPlane™ take?

PowerPlane™ operates on 4 standard 1.5V AA batteries. Slide the unit open in order to access the battery compartment located on the bottom. The Sonic Sensor operates on 4, 1.5V coin batteries, model LR44 or A76. To change the batteries, push in the button located next to the circular magnet and slide the cover off. In both instances, make sure batteries are placed with correct polarity as indicated by the + sign.

+ Why is the power light on my PowerPlane™ flashing rapidly?

If the power LED flashes rapidly for 2 seconds on either the PowerPlane™ or Sonic Sensor when turned on, it indicates that the batteries are low and should be replaced, at your convenience. The product will still operate until the batteries die.
