    Hello everyone,

    Ive ready that adding a GPS locater is a very smart investment to your quadcopter. Any suggestions on this?

    Any help would be cool.


    Regards,

    Jaimes

    I looked at the trackimo link and it looked interesting. What did you not like about it?

    I found it to be unreliable, I had done some testing with it on buddies property. Had it place in wide open area, clear day and it was locating it showing it about 2 miles in another direction. I tested it several times, never could get a somewhat accurate location. Closest it would show location was 1/4 mile from actual position.

    That would be a real bummer if looking for a lost quad.
    Thanks.

    Weight 25g (0.88oz)
    Has built in SIM card, after 2yr free service, it cost $5.00 a month. Good thing is no subscription fee or contract, so if not going to be using for a while you could shut off service.
