    Check Time in Video for reference with Solar Storms etc..
    Was testing if there is Interferences GPS - Phantom Electronics.
    Make your own conclusions..
    Naza Mode - Some people can also check this video to identify the sets of Green Lights before taking of.

    Let's hope all PV2+ are the same quality and no one will never ever experience GPS issues nor anything related.
    I would say, time will tell.

    I apologize for cross posting, but wanted to see if anyone's got an idea about this:

    I was wondering about maybe replace the GPS Antenna with one that has a higher gain.

    I think this one below can be used to replace the P2V+ GPS antenna. However, am looking for something with more gain.

    Like these, but not sure if these are too thick..

    These are Glonass Antennas

    This one is slighly thicker (by 2mm), but am thinking might work:

    Anyone have experience with this?

    As I suspected when I first saw the post claiming the Phantom's electronics were blowing out the GPS, you can't test a single sample and apply it to the entire fleet. Obviously, most of the GPS units are happily functioning alongside the other electronics, just as in this example.
