Hi everybody, Can somebody help. I have a Jdrones quad and can't get a lock on my GPS (outside). I have moved the GPS away on a upper platform. I did have alock 2 days ago red led on solid blue led on GPS board on solid. Then the next day in the field no lock after 30 minutes. I have changed the connector with a new one no luck, changed the GPS module received from Dydrones yesterday, again no luck. My Jdrones was built and tested by Jdrones. Any suggestions are welcome. Pierre
Are you under heavy tree cover?
Is the GPS out in the clear on the quad - no wires / metalwork / Carbon Fibre in the way of its view of the sky?
Do you have Telemetry or an AV link that might be interfering with GPS reception?
Mine takes widely variable time to lock. I've had it come up in 5-10 seconds in an open field, but in a similarly open-ish situation, it can take a minute or more.
Hi Dave, sorry for the delay my computer went back to the dream times for a while. No, I am in open space, don't have telemetry yet. I have had a fix once. I will have to try again in an other area near my place. Thanks for your input. Pierre
