Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

RcTimer Gps For Rabbit Multi Wii Or MegaPirate

I bought one of the Rctimer cheap Gps modulesand I have to say it looks very good and also uses the ublox Neo 6m gps engine, it doesnt come plastic wrapped like some of the others which is a shame but it is the smallest ive seen to date, it comes with a nice lead but i had to swap the yellow and green wires over to make it work with the rabbit, as can be seen in the pictures it got a fix indoors with out problems and has a little led light on top to show it is powered, for some reason other modules seem to have this led underneath,
having tried several types of gps now I have to say I prefer the types that have the ublox engine rathe than the MTK the MTK seems to wander about a lot when compared to the ublox,
This Gps is a serial only version unlike the other one I posted that has serial and I2c although Rctimer do sell an I2c interface to use with it  ~~

Very nice looking unit shame its not insulated though  :o it looks like the I2c interface they sell has the correct plug on it to fit the Gps  ~~
it looks like you have mounted your on a piece of copper faced board is there a reason for this ?

Which to buy ? do either of them perform better than the other ?

Gaza07

Both units are very nice and both have the same Ublox engine, the other is a bit more money but ships from the UK and has the I2c interface built in, although I havent tested this side of it yet,
Im pretty sure the lower voltage would be for a I2c connection but Im not sure,

The copper faced PCB was fitted to help prevet interference from the flight controller as  lot seem to put there Gps on a mast to prevent it and I didnt want to do that  ~~
