    Just wondered whether anyone using Flytrex Live 3G would ever consider the need to fly with a tracker as well.

    My thinking is that the weak point of the FL3G is that you cant upload data if you dont have a 3G network in the location you are flying.

    In the UK 2G is pretty much ubiquitous, and if there isnt a 3G signal where you are flying, you cant usually still send and receive texts over GSM... for example to a tracker.

    I would be interested in your thoughts on this, and I realise that the mobile network arrangement in the UK may not be typical.
