HobbyKings Arkbird-AAT Auto Antenna tracker and Airborne Module combo set also inlcudes, at no extra cost, an Arkbird GPS module, so you'll never get lost on those long distance FPV flights again!
An auto antenna tracker is a must for long distance FPV/Video operation and ensures the maximum reception at all times by tracking the model as it flies in all directions and altitudes. The Arkbird AAT greatly improves the transmission range by pointing a high gain ground panel antenna (not supplied) at your model wherever it goes. This antenna tracker has an airborne module which works in conjunction with the popular Arkbird OSD unit (also not supplied) and installation is straightforward and simple as it comes plug and play, no soldering required.
The tracker has 2 sets of sensors for dual-coupling correction and is equipped with a magnetic compass and inertial navigation compass (gyroscope) for high precision tracking. Also includes 2 channel transmission of the video and audio for dual reliability (50Hz on video channel, 10Hz on audio channel).
Take off point coordinates can be automatically saved after powering up, dynamic positioning is achieved by using the supplied GPS interface in the ground module which supports the movement tracking. This is very handy if the antenna tracker is used on a moving vehicle or in the event of an emergency landing or searching for a lost model.
The ground unit is supplied with integrated suction cups for mounting on a car roof etc and a tripod mounting so that you can choose which way you mount the tracker whilst its in use.

I do love this tracker and module. you do have to calibrate it to start the first fly of the day, Or I do. You do have to use a pal camera to make it work. I have gone out 8 miles and 5500 ft high with out any problems. I'm using 1.3 gear with a Ellen and Mad Mushroom Antenna and a Crosshair Antenna. I have the new OSD 2.0 and I don't like it. I use the cyclops tornado and the stock module that come with the kit. And this works great. I Have not use any other trackers. This is the only one I have tried and use.
