    Are all you guys mounting the gps module up on the stick? When it mentions magnetic sensitive, does that mean like a metal that a magnet sticks to or an actual magnet like a motor?

    Nope, I have mine on the left rear arm on my F450 near my 5.8 gHz vTx and opposite my OSD GPS on the right front arm and just in front of the lipo between M1 and M2 on the top plate on my F550. Both work great.

    On the inside of the right rear arm. My Rx is on the left rear arm. On the F450 the satellite is under the vTx on the rear tab. On the F550 the satellite is on the right rear arm opposite the VU.

    Quick question off topic. I have a Discovery frame ordered with the Core pre soldered. It should be here in a week or so. How do you have your GPS mounted on your Discovery?

    I know that the UHF receiver is on the back but I would try between the D and the S on the top plate. That would make a really clean install, especially if you painted the GPS black. Very stealthy. I won't be using UHF since I am fine with less that 2k performance.

    Cool, keep me informed. I really want to transfer my FPV gear from my F450 to the Discovery and keep it as uncluttered as possible. My friend who is a pro wants something that can be transportable and versatile. The Discovery may be the solution to his requirements. I wonder if a Nex5N would work? I may have to try one.

    that was a good call. i think next i'll try straight in front of the front of the battery bolts, looks will sit with a mounting of x=0 y=0 z=3,,,,,,,,

    wonder how it's gonna deal with that crazy 1.3 cloverleaf
