    Thought experiment. A lot of Phantom users are doing a tin-foil mod. Basically placing foil between the GPS receiver and the electronics inside and are claiming faster and better satellite reception. Has anyone considered or tried relocating it outside the case? In a tower? Thoughts on this?

    Yes, this has been done. It opens the door to a bunch of other possible issues though -- like modifying the look of your Phantom and worrying about damaging the GPS unit in a crash.
