The FrSky GPS Sensor feeds variable directional information such as altitude, position, speed, and UTC time, which is displayed in real time on FrSky's Taranis transmitter or telemetry dashboard (DHT-U/FLD-02/FSD etc.) This sensor will only work with the FrSky Smart Port enabled receivers, such as X8R, X6R, X4R, etc. This is a great addition to your Taranis setup.

Handy addition to planes, can be used to send speed, altitude and location data back. the Taranis can then also calculate distance etc.
This can be used with the Log function for flight paths or just moved between models to check max speed or to help find it after a crash. Nice and small so will fit in most things pretty easily.The product: This is a good product from Frsky. It locks onto satellites quite quickly and is relatively accurate given its size. The gps altitude isn't very accurate, but that is fairly typical of gps derived height information. I did have some trouble getting it to initialise but I think it was because it was too close to the ESC, positioning it to the tail boom or on top of the battery in the nose and it works great.
Shipping: The shipping was terrible. It took over 50 days, I would normally just put that down to bad luck but when it arrived it had not been addressed correctly. It had "shipped" within days of purchase, but later tracking information showed it did not arrive at the shippers depot for 2 weeks, it then sat there for about a month with no update before suddenly arriving in my country but then no notification from my national postal service. Hobbyking were not interested in trying to see what was going on until the magic 45 days had passed. I managed to track the parcel down and found it was missing crucial address information so there was no way to know where to deliver it but it needed to be corrected by the sender. I passed this to Hobbyking along with the contact information in my country to have it fixed but all they did was open an 'investigation' which can take another 4 weeks. After 50 days I was about to do a charge back through my bank and decided to have one last go at finding it and managed to track it down and was able to collect it. It had only arrived at that location a few hours earlier. The address that I entered on the order matched the address on my invoice but the address on the parcel was missing crucial information. I have had other mis-addressed deliveries from Hobbyking but with different addressing errors, they seem to have a real problem with this. I have had no response from them over this issue via email. This was my first and only order from a Hobbyking warehouse outside of my country. I won't be risking it again. Overall rating is for Hobbyking on this order, Value and Quality is for Frsky.Excellant unit that is small and inexpensive but does the job and works a treat.
So easy to set up with the smart port.I have TARANIS PLUS FRSKY And X8R with Smart Port.
TX is set up in the ID 820-4 but the result is the LED Flash 0m,,,,, Fast.
No data delivery, I think that is not the position
any advice . NOT WORK IN FOREIGNThe product name is misleading: this is not a GPS that you can connect to Flight Controllers. This GPS ONLY works with FrSky receiver (e.g. X8R) which then sends the GPS data back to your Taranis transmitter. So the GPS data only gets displayed on Taranis LCD screen. I contacted FrSky there is no datasheet or no way to connect this GPS to flight controller. The product description should state clearly that this GPS cannot be used with flight controllers.Working perfect when found satelites...
Sometimes it takes a long time to be ready. Working perfect on all Receivers with SMART Port!Fantastic item, I use it all the time in all places and electronics. Nice n shiny finish, good covering finish.Love the FrSky system. This sensor is no exception.
Would prefer it if it was faster and more accurate, but for the price, not bad.Arrived faster than expected (13 days).
Used this and paired with FrSky X8R and gave the GPS info straight to my Taranis.
Quality product and a must have for Taranis user.Very imprecise GPS, my plane is capable of Mach 2 and climb to 35.000 meters.... I wait 15 minutes to try to connect at maxium number of sats but this not work well...
