Archived: GPS Module (External)¶
Almost everyone has moved to GPS+compass module.
This page covers the mounting of GPS without an on-board compass. See this page for the GPS+compass module.
Tips on mounting the GPS module¶
- For modules without an on-board compass, the orientation does not matter as long as the square antenna side is facing up
- The GPS should have a clear view of the sky and not be under spinning propellers
- It should be mounted as far away as possible from radio transmission equipment (telemetry, video transmitters), motors, and ESCs.
