    My next door neighbor has a 3D printer, and we came up with this for a mounting solution for my VF-R16 GPS tracker. What do you think? Lemme know if you need one, he's selling them on the Phantom 3 facebook page.

    Could he do one for Trackimo? I am sure he could get a lot of orders from that one also.

    Yeah, I don't see why not. I'd need the specs as far as the size, and then a guinea pig.

    Waiting for Flytrex. Still did 1 mile, then lost signal and it did auto return till I got signal back. Back of my mind was " gosh I wish I had a tracker"

    I stopped waiting on Flytrex and just got an RF-V16 tracker. Meets the need of a basic tracker especially since all the telemetry is in the app now. It's even nicer now that the RF-V16 app works

    Looks good, do you supply the longer screws too? I velcroed mine to the back of the battery which does the job but one of these holders would be much better, do you ship to the UK?
    Here is mine.

    The stock screws did the trick. I had to recess the screw into the mount a little bit, but once I got a thread it tightened up nice.

    You don't need a data plan as you can just send it a text for location if you need it, if data is enabled you can see live tracking on the app or via the web and you can choose it to update location as often as you want.
