    Hey guys! I have had quite a few requests for a review of my GPS tracker that I use. I know there are many alternatives out there, so I was hoping to help folks that were in the market for one. I searched this forum and didn't see anyone reviewing it, so I apologize if I missed it somewhere. Thanks!

    I see that the minimum time you can have the tracker update is 1 minute. The drone can fly pretty far in a minute. Using the Reach Far app, is it updated constantly in real time, or still just every 1 minute?

    Do you have the link for the 3D printed mounting bracket?

    However, when it crashes, presumably it's not moving very fast. You would get a more accurate location after a few minutes.

    I would like to watch it in real time, much like how the Flytrex app works, when the connection is broken. Waiting 1 minute to see if it moved is nerve racking. ;)

    Great video! Your video was one of the deciding factors that swayed me to purchase the RF V16. My unit it working great with the android app. Thanks
