    Does any know of a small GPS locator that you can strap on the Phantom to help locate it if it does fly away?

    There's a couple. search for "GPS Tracker" here to see the threads.

    I went with the Tagg.com tracker, it's a pretty robust pet tracker, and fairly hassle free. and I snap it to the leg of my Phantom 1.
    cost around $8 a month tho, but having lost one quad already, I find it rather assuring to fly with one now

    I got the TK102B recently. It works pretty well so far. It's under $40 and then you need a SIM card for it. I got one from T-Mobile online, and then added $10 worth of prepaid service for it for 3 months.

    You have to call in to set it up though. If you try and do it online, you won't be able to get past the part where you have to put in an IMEI number for the device you want to activate. But when you call in they help you through that and get you a phone number to be assigned to the card. You "call" it when you want it to text you back it's location with a google maps link.
