    I attached this to the Phantom 2,Blue tooth 150'Range GPS just in case of fly away or failure. Does anyone know if this would interfere with data link blue tooth?
    Thanks

    It won't interfere with the groundstation, but your Bluetooth unit (BTU) should be connected to the ground end anyway, not on the Phantom itself.

    THANKYOU I was just worried about takeoff/landing when the tile was in range with the BTU.

    The tile might be a false sense security with only 150 foot range.

    Ummmm.... From what I've seen and heard, if a fly-away occurs it usually flies further than 150 feet. More like kilometres. What use is that tile?

    "Ummmm!?" I have to confess I've never really understood the whole "Ummm" thing. I don't type "achoo" when I sneeze.

    A tile can be used in situations other than flyaways. Although not a long range solution, a Tile can be useful if you know generally, but not exactly where your heli went down. For instance, I frequently fly in heavily wooded areas and if it goes down in the woods near my home I can walk out and, hopefully, get within 150 feet. I do not use a Tile but have considered it.

    The word 'Ummm' according to the dictionary of slang words, is "an interjection used to express doubt or hesitation"
    eg: "Where are we"? "Ummm... I'm not really sure"

    If you'd like you can PM me your silliness. Let's keep it out of the forum.

    When I asked about BT trackers from DJI, they said it can interfere with the 2.4ghz controller as BT is working on the same freq (2.405 something)

    Ummm, what's the average distance flown of a true flyaway? For those of you who have found it.

    Ummm, I couldn't say. Ummm, doesn't it go until it stops? Ummm, I think a "true" flyaway means it gets lost completely.
