  • The right question is "Is this working at all"?

    I tried everything possible with the module, and the maximum amount of sats I managed to get was 5-6, and it was constantly dropping down to 4 and below. 

    The only good thing about the module is the look and size, as for performance... it looks like a total failure.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, anyone running the module with better results?

  • I wonder if the antenna works upside down. Have you got any test result?

  • How many pcs you need? About module you can write me email.

  • Will it also be possible to buy only the ublox module. I would like to integrate it on my flightcontroller.

    The modules are hard to get.

  • All orders shipped from Europa

  • Hi GSCShop,

    where is your shop/company located at?
    The "About us" page does not show any information.

    Where are you shipping from?

  • Thank you.

  • I will add pinout today there and to item description in the shop.

  • Hi there,

    I am still looking for the pinout for the Helix version.
    Unfortunately, I get no response to my emails to CSGShop.
    It should not be a problem to put the pin assignment available.

    regards Peter

  • Looking forward for testresults
