    I just came across this video on youtube & wondered if this would be safe to use on a P3A incase the worst happens, or whether the fact it has a mobile sim card in could interfere with the controls of the phantom & maybe cause a fly away?

    Thank you ive just come across that 1, there is no issue of signal interference from having what is basically a mobile phone strapped to your phantom?

    For £25 it's worth a try because you're paying £100+ for a Trackimo, which is what I have. The problem with these is that they need a cell phone signal to be able to transmit the data to yous phone or pc. But for £25, wow, I would try it right now :)
    But if you're going to be deep in the woods like here in California, many of the places that I go, there is no signal or any hint of one, so the Marco Polo style that isn't net based is much better. But that's £200+ again.

    if you get one make sure it comes with 2 backs, 1 has a magnet and will mess up your compass
