    Decided to tether it also, as it looked like a good hard bounce could knock it out of the holder at the top.

    I just leave mine in its holder without any extra restraint. I reckon if a bounce is hard enough to knock it out of the holder, it would be hard enough to break the drone and its landing gear.

    where did you get your tether mount for the Trackimo? I've been searching all over and can't find them.

    Looks like that's the lanyard clip that comes with the trackimo combined with a zip tie.

    Prolly a dumb question but why does everyone seem to put them on the RHS
    Do you interfere with the gimbal holder on the LHS?

    Where did you purchase the holder from? I am located in Australia, I've ordered the Trackimo unit and should receive in the next couple of days.

    As for the actual trackimo is it any good? I really can't afford the Marco Polo but was wondering about trackimo

    If you ever fly in an area with limited or no cellular you're wasting your time with Trackimo. W/o cellular service it's just added weight to your aircraft.
