Quote from: powerlord on Tuesday,June 04, 2013, 16:32:05 After my first dji made a bid for freedom (succeeding) last year I';ve been keen on taking as many precautions as I can to avoid to happening again.So far I have a working And tested Rth failsafe, and OSD with GPS.But if the failsafe doesn';t work for some reason it could still manage to escape.So I';ve fitted a cheap light android phone to it. Battery out and powered by ubec so nice and light.I';m running glymse (sends GPS track to Internet in real time and of course on another phone or tablet you can watch it) and also ustream which sends real time video from the camera to Internet (where again it is saved and can be viewed real time on other devices)So now at least if it disappears I should have an accurate up to date GPS location to find it, plus video link which is not limited by tx/rx distance.Phone is a 25 quid tmobile rapport, and 6 months 3G Internet is 20 quid. So not a lot of cash to protect 2000 quid of quadcopter.

Quote from: rsmith21 on Tuesday,June 04, 2013, 22:35:48 I think I better buy one before you guys by them all would this work in the UK. To make it work I suppose you have to add a sim card, but what else. I think I';ll just get one and see. Great link I ordered it, I';ll let you know how I get on with it in a month if it arrives
Quote from: firey1 on Wednesday,June 05, 2013, 00:33:29 yes would work fine in the UK and it runs on 5v so could power it by the ubec with a bit of wiring up
Quote from: rsmith21 on Wednesday,June 05, 2013, 19:48:00 your right, it states GPS, there was an image of two units at the end of the item description, with covers off, showing the difference between two units one with a GPS module and the other without. I';ll just have to wait and see what arrives.Bob
