    Found this little GPS transponder, still under development and said to release soon.
    You can sign up for updates on the product on their site http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/retrievor-self-charging-gps-tracking-retrieving
    It states the subscription fee will be only $1.79 a month... May well be the GPS locator solution RC pilots have been waiting for.

    Small lightweight solution at a low cost, includes a smartphone app.

    I'm tempted, but will wait for a few competitors to show up.

    Thanks Rookie. Hope you're on to something. Just ordered the Garmin last night. Love to return it unopened, though that seems unlikely.

    Well, my tracker is a little bigger (but probably has better antennas) and needs charging every couple of weeks... I wonder what prove they will charge? I sure wouldn't pay a monthly fee for something I can get free... (You can get a contract roaming sim for less that $1.79 / month, and GPS is free).
