    Hello ..
    Just want to know if anyone else has experienced this. I own the Typhoon H with real sense and have noticed on many occasions the loss of GPS while flying. Even when in a wide open space with nothing around me that could possibly block the signal. On preflight checks .. I have great connection with satellites from both controller and aircraft but after launching craft I receive a loss signal WARNING .. Any advice or possibly a better antenna .. Thanks ...

    Possibly a bad GPS module

    Upload a telemetry file from one of those flights. Just add a .txt to the end of the file name so it will upload.

    No no. The telemetry files are stored in the flightlog directory on the ST16. You can turn on the ST16 and then connect it to your pc using the USB charging cable.

    A telemetry file is stored for every flight. After connecting the ST16 to your pc you can find the files by opening the FlightLog directory and then open the Telemetry folder. The most current flight will have the highest number in the name.
