I am looking for a good GPS tracker to mount on my Q500 4k, any advice is appreciated.
I suggest you Flytrex live 3G with cable for Q500:
Flytrex Live 3G User Manual
It's more than a simple GPS tracker...:
Flight Tracker - Advanced Last Seen tool not only lets you find lost aircraft, but helps you analyze flight characteristics and identify possible problems.
Real time flight telemetry - See flight data with Google Maps display in real time with your personal Flight Channel, share real-time flight with other pilots and more.
Logbook and Social - Flights are automatically logged in personal Flytrex profile. Analyze flights, personal records, complete challenges, compete with pilots worldwide and more.
You need a MicroSIM card and a GSM cell phone subscription for data...

You could use an extra 2S LiPo battery or the Q500 alimentation with a cable soldering.
Please note, you may lose the Yuneec guarantee if you make a weld by opening the body of the Typphoon Q500. For me an extra 2S LiPo battery is nice but you must find a place to fix it without compromising the flight stability of the Q500 and the charge and balance of LiPo battery have to be easy ;-)
Go for the Marco.Polo,two mile range,uses the LoJack technology.I use them on all my quads,have never lost one yet.no subscription fees,rechargeable with well over several weeks of battery life,uses a hand held locater to track down your lost machine.
No solder trackers! Will void your warranty ! Go Marco Polo or Trackmo
Thank you all for your advice. I will check them all out.
I have bought a Trackimo TRK100. Took about 20 minutes to set up. It found it self on the map in less than 3 minutes. Very easy to use. Thanks again for the advice.
