    I've seen some great mods to mount the tk102 inside the phantom. Has anyone come up with a way to power it from on board power and thereby as saving the extra weight of the tk102 battery.

    I saw someone mention that they were powering it via the phantom battery but can't remember who or which post. But I guess the issue is that if the phantom battery pops out in a crash (as they sometimes do) or the phantom losses power for whatever reason, you're screwed.

    Good point. If the phantom batt goes down, so does the tracker. I guess the weight isn't that much to have it's own battery.
