I recently lost one of my quads during an FPV outage in Auto, it had Bluetooth LE beacon on it but I never picked up the signal walking around where I thought it should be. I really wanted to find a way to get the exact location of a lost craft in case of fly away, pilot error or mechanical failure, especially in our deep Florida woods and swamps.
I thought I would share a little device I found this week and purchased. It's a fairly small stand alone GSM GPS for $44, simply send it a text and it replies with a link to google map location.
It's my stick on piece of mind for my TBS Disco now.
It's water resistant, 100 hour standby, text to wake up.
During a crash it may not survive but you can have it send last location, or text you while moving the location over intervals.
I purchased a $10 pay-as-you-go h20 card so there is no cost, monthly or otherwise unless I send it a text.
Just thought I would share to the group, its a little insurance for a total of $54.
