    Ouch!
    Apparently the TK102 (even off) messes up the Phantom GPS Calibration.
    I located mine right under the belly, next to the VTX (TS 351).
    Can't get the Home locking, lights are flashing red-yellow-red...
    Get an Error 27 in the assistant.

    When I remove it, No more problem, get my sats and home point locking.
    No more warning / Error 27 in the assistant.

    I repeated the situation to be sure and got the same problem, same fix. How is this happening? The TK 102 is widely used apparently. Did someone had the same issue and how did you fix it? Thanks.

    Ha Ha! Yes ! Stupid of me :lol:
    I totally overlooked that! I thought this cover woud be more appropriate for double taping it...
    Thanks a lot!

    I would check everything VERY carefully in the assistant after strapping those 4 magnets on ;)

    Everything looks fine, no recalibration needed.
