Is there a higher quality GPS module that could be installed?

I have not researched the H but with my previous experience with Flight Controllers like CC3D, Revolution, etc there were better quality GPS modules you could install.

I dont have a clue how to rate/ compare the accuracy of a GPS and was curious how good the H unit is compared to other options and is it even a possibility to install a better unit?

Interesting question. I've been thinking the same thing. I think it will depend on coding, etc

Keen to see what other members have to say about this topic.

I should note that my interest in this is just that - purely interest. From my experience with the YTH, I am pretty happy with the current config, but if there is a way to make it even better, then that is certainly worth looking at.

My H itself seems pretty sensitive picking up the GPS birds, even under trees, but the ST-16 does not do as well.

I'm not sure how you'd benefit. If the GPS unit in the H is working, it is rock solid. There are a small number of faulty units, but the answer to that is to get it fixed, not switch to an unsupported third party unit.

I was thinking if the options were available with a better -dbm sensitivity and a faster Hz update rate and you could unplug and plug in a new one then it might be worth looking at. I have yet to take my H apart so I have no idea if the GPS is all soldered into the main board etc. I don't see why the code would need to change if the GPS communication parameters are the same.

IF you look at this video,


go to 06:30 and you see the GPS in the top half of the shell

Is it the little white block near that fat red wire?
No!!! that is the on/off switch, opposite end to that,
when he rotates it round at exactly 06:38 in to the video,
why don't you contact Tigger, he is very approachable
