    Thanks for the suggestion but I did and only seen comments referring to the P2. Guessing the same issues involved but as they are a different bird I was hoping for some information from experienced P3 owners

    The 3rd, 7th, 8th, 12th, and 14th posts in that list are all P3 related...

    This is the best GPS tracker i have seen so far http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Mini-...S-Dual-Talk-/261861693147?hash=item3cf82c56db.
    And this is the cheapest and best 3d printed mount for the P3: 1x RF V 16 GPS Holder / mount for DJI Phantom 3 only!

    Marco Polo. No monthly costs. Gets you right to it if you're within two miles. Have one on my P2 and P3.

    I have a trackimo 100... Nothing but problems since I added it. Although I did mount it over my compass before I figured out where the compass was. After moving it, still have issues. With that said, a lot of people have had good luck with them.

    Did you mean GPS or Compass? Just curious. Either is possible.

    I believe compass. In the back right side of the landing gear there is a compass or a compass sensor(not sure) but that's where I mounted it. Correct me if I am wrong please, still in the learning process.

    Is it the actual compass or a sensor? How hard is it to replace the compass?

    The actual compass is a small circuit board on the leg on all Phantoms

    Replacement requires opening the shell. The compass plugs into the GPS board in the top shell.

    It is not a particularly difficult task.

    Hi Jerry,

    Does it actually take you right up to it like advertised? How far away did your wife hide them? Any problems with mounting the transmitters? How are the transmitters fastened on? Are you still happy with that system?

    Thanks,
    Scott
