    which ones do you use and what frequency do GPS trackers use to report their position? (worried about interference)

    I use the Drone Mods gps tracker and have had no interference problems. I can't say what others may do. Mine was made specifically for this purpose. It's not the cheapest but it seems to work well and seems well built. Standby is about 12 days I think. I call it many times a day. I have found a few quirks about using it but I think it is the internet and phone services that cause it rather than the tracker. See DroneMods.com

    Are you talking GPS only or trackers in general. I ended up with a Marco Polo to get away from GPS. Basically totally different technology to mix it up a bit. Still have the DJI find Phantom which will show last location but added RF tracking with the Marco Polo.

    Thanks Guys!

    On the TK102b - how long does the battery last? Have you used it to find the Phantom? How accurate is it? Have you tested it in something like an area of trees?

    That seems like a good price range (28.00 on amazon) Plus a sim-chip correct?

    Thanks for the info :)
