    I am interested in purchasing a tracking device for my Inspire, just in case I have a fly-away. Is there anyone out there that is currently using one and having success with it? I'm also curious about how to mount it on the aircraft. I have done some research and am leaning toward the Trackimo TRK-100. I would appreciate some feedback from those who are one step ahead of me. Thanks!

    I have a Flytrex... it works exactly 1/2 of the time. I don't recommend it.

    My Trackimo works great -- and is easy to setup and use. People often create 3D printed mounts for trackers. Here are a few good mounts for the Trackimo:

    If you don't have a 3D printer, check eBay or Amazon to buy one.

    Also use a trackimo. Was so happy with it I put it in all of my fleet vehicles for my business as well.

    I appreciate all of the response! It looks like it's trackimo.

    Does anyone know of a place where I could purchase a mount that would work with the trackimo on the Inspire?

    like my trackimo too. I put industrial velcro on the back of the inspire and the trackimo and use a RC disconnect to tether it in case there's a problem with collision.
