  • steveo9007: Cheers Atom was just a thought for now as I plan on keeping it well in range until I get comfortable with controls and flying
    December 05, 2018, 21:01:25
  • atomiclama: steveo You can just plug a GPS puck into the FC and get the OSB to display the coords, record the VTX and when things go tits up you have the last known posistion. Whislt not accurate it is a good starting point. Or get the coords sent back by telemetry to you TX which will be more accurate as long as power is maintained to the quad and it is range with the TX. Just some thoughts.
    December 04, 2018, 12:27:26
  • steveo9007: Is there a post on here about the 433mhz telem tx ??
    December 04, 2018, 07:56:49
  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw
    December 03, 2018, 20:31:44
  • shawdreamer: meanwhile the 433mhz telem option I mentioned gives you live fixes in realtime and not "delayed texts"..... plus it doesnt cost you credit everytime you request a gps fix (btw the tags sim card also needs to have credit on it :laugh:)
    December 02, 2018, 20:47:10
  • shawdreamer: and yes that does actually work..... I tried it for a laugh a couple of years ago ::)
    December 02, 2018, 20:45:09
  • shawdreamer: the tags do as you say use satellites to get positional fixes but they dont immediately report those fixes to an App, each tag requires a Sim card (same as your phone) which is used to "text" you the tags position..... in other words you could get the exact same effect by strapping a old smartphone to your frame with the google "where is my device" app installed
    December 02, 2018, 20:44:13
  • steveo9007: doesnt the tag communicate with the satellites and not via a data system, isn't it the user who owns the tag go via data to the app that can locate the tag ???
    December 02, 2018, 18:18:11
  • shawdreamer: plus, alot of the lower end trackers struggle with GPRS and often rely heavily on GSM data instead which is just not worth a sh1te when it comes to pinpointing a downed frame
    December 02, 2018, 16:23:30
  • shawdreamer: most readily available gps trackers are not really suitable for anything smaller than a 400 sized frame as the units themselves are often too bulky for anything smaller and larger frames often already have their own gps setups that can simply be outfitted with a 433mhz telem tx that would report live and accurate info direct to a ground station so there'd be no point in a sms type tracker
    December 02, 2018, 16:22:07
  • steveo9007: anybody fitted a GPS tracker tag to their drones if it gets lost and is need to find it

A little 808 non HD version camera. Ging to use it to record fights/crashes till I get a bit more confident to use my sj4000.
Only took 5 days from AliExpress!!! Amazed how fast it arrived.

As expected, most but not all of my stuff arrived today ...

2 x Flip32+ from BangGood UK warehouse - these now come in their own injection moulded cases, and spare single row pins to hook up the not-often used ports. They';re now loaded up with the latest stable Cleanflight

2 x ZMR250 PDB bottom plates by Diatone, nice, simple, tidy power layout and LEDs

1 x Tamron lens hood - the originally sent the wrong size with the new lens, and a prepaid returns label

Still waiting for a ship-load of stuff  :smiley:

You will have fun with that, are you going 3S or 4S?

I';ve got some Nano 1800 4s lipos for the new 250 quad that';ll fit, so I guess I';ll go straight for 4s :smiley: Been going to get one since they came out and I just happened to be looking at the Durafly page and spotted the sale price. The second one is for a mate, who wanted a yellow one, but oddly they';re not on sale.
