    I recently replaced a Garmin unit with a TK102. As long as attached to the bottom of the shell, neither has caused any interference. The tracker does slightly shift the quad's balance. In flight the motors compensate for this but it can make landing in windy conditions a little more difficult.

    I've been using my Drone-Mods for a few months now and so far has not caused any disturbance.

    What I've done in the past is connect the Phantom to the assistant and look under the "tools" where you do the IMU calibration then use/call the tracker next/near to the compass (and other parts of the Phantom especially where you're going to mount it) and watch to see if the MOD values changes significantly and go over/under the normal values.
