    There are several discussions on the forum about trackers. I use this one and it works without problems. It also has to due with where you place them on your quad.

    Hey there guys..well after getting some help from happyflyer I was able to relocate my tracker and have a successful flight ...at first I installed it underneath the drone by the battery, but there was a magnetic pull between the battery and the tracker..then I put the tracker directly on top between the propellers..that made the compass go haywire pointing in the opposite direction. .got a feeling that would have possibly ended with a crash or flyaway..then after happyflyer sent me a link I mounted the tracker on the landing gear opposite the compass..that was the trick.. happy flying..turbodronepilot
