    This afternoon I received my redundant GPS tracker (RF-V16) and it was a bit of a learning curve, actually pain, to get it to work but with the help from so online post I finally figured it out.

    Anyway, once finally got it to work I decided to tackle my next project. I've seen folks mount their RF on the back of the I1 via velcro and I would have gone that route but I really need to keep that space available for possible other equipment I needed to kind a more robust and secured spot...

    ...and this is what I came up with.

    Granted she ain't purty but after working on it I got the angles I was looking for and it will work.

    So now after searching for an appropriate location I decided to mount it next to the sonar sensors and I tell you what it fits there perfectly without any disruption at all.

    Here is some background.

    Hey Outta Control. .
    check out the 3d printed accessories thread and take a look at the blade mount for the rf-v16 tracker. .
    it mounts on the lower arm..
    perhaps this might be a good addition to your inspire1. .
    happy flying. ...

    Turbo: thanks for the lead.

    Karl:
    1. make sure activate and get the phone# first
    2. Once installed and powered use 123456,sos1,<phone#>
    3. Make sure you don't use capital letters in any commands to the RF and type in lag,2# for engurish ;)
    4. Finally dw# to get tracking info.

    5. dsp# will get you an update on the tracker's battery status, signal strength, and current settings.

    You may also want to review how often your GPS updates. I think the default is 10 minutes. I moved my down to 5 minutes, and sometimes I update even more frequently when I'm flying in a new location and fully charged on the tracker. More frequent updates=greater battery usage. It could also be impactful to cell/data usage, too.
