Product Description

This is the NEW FrSky v2 Smart Port GPS for Taranis X8R users to log GPS data via telemetry such as position, speed, distance and altitude (it does not act a GPS-coupled navigation  RTH device - it only sends data to the Tx/pilot - the pilot decides what to do with this info himself) - Its does not send data to the iOSD  - It sends data back to the Tx only - Its particularly handy for "lost aircraft situations" providing a Ground Station option for location logging,  becuase the user can code his FrSky Taranis Tx to log the data to a .xls file on the MicroSD card - and even assign that function to switch - or install a bigger microSDcard and have it on all the time.  So after an aircaft is lost - you can then view the Taranis card and find the last known position - or if the crashed aircaft/GPS is on and is still in radio range - the crash location.  Its also useful to look at this data "live" if you want it "called out" by the Taranis.
Mounting: Up /Sky mount position = Antenna must face UP ->  cannot be covered by carbon or copper.
