  • 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

  • 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.

  • steveo9007: Is there a post on here about the 433mhz telem tx ??

  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw

  • 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:)

  • shawdreamer: and yes that does actually work..... I tried it for a laugh a couple of years ago ::)

  • 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 ???

  • 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

  • steveo9007: anybody fitted a GPS tracker tag to their drones if it gets lost and is need to find it

Need help deciding
« on: October 05, 2018, 06:06:50 »
first up have to say quads are not so important to me nowadays, but i am looking at selling my DJI p3s, the plan was to put FPV on the AQ600 and sell phantom, so i fitted fpv and on test flight crashed the 600 (my own stupid fault) and now i am really struggling to find a new frame for the 600 running gear, this has me thinking go old school and just get an F450 frame.....problem here is my 3108 720kv motors are to big for 450 frame, the motors need at least 11" props, and yes i might just get 11" on the 450, the prop wash will be awful, so now im thinking do i sell the sunnysky 3108`s and go for smaller motors like 2212 or 2216 (4s 5200mah), if i do a final quad build i will also have to find a new gimbal and camera that actually work well...............what to do?

Think i might have solved this little problem (all on my own) i see aliexpress sell an S600 frame, just the same as the S500 but a little bigger, this might well be the way i go
