    Have you all see this new product coming out called Tile. A link to the website is below. While it appears to be a bluetooth device, the interesting part is that the more Tiles users out there the larger the range of locating an item. It seem super small, light and just the thing to stick to a Phantom.

    I appreciate your thoughts.

    No range... Not a practical idea imo.

    Don't waste your time. It will prove useless. Bluetooth range is about 15m. Even IF there are users nearby they will need to be within that range to locate your tile and have Thier Bluetooth turned on. I dont know about you but i rarely turn on bluetooth (to save my phone battery). There seems to be very little uptake of this product so I did a google search for current user distribution and came up with nothing.

    No batteries to replace?
    Nope, you never need to replace the batteries or even charge your Tiles.

    A whole year?
    Tiles last a year. We'll remind you when it's time to order new Tiles and send you an envelope to recycle your old ones.
