A GPS stands for global positioning system and is a satellite navigation system that uses a radio receiver to collect signals from orbiting satellites to determine the position, speed, and time of the connected drone. The accuracy of a GPS is within a few meters.
On our drones, planes, and wings, a smaller version of a GPS attached to the flight controller, and through programming, on the flight controller, the GPS can send its data either to the radio or as a heads up display in your FPV feed.
Additional features as position hold, waypoints, return to home, and others are possibilities with a calibrated GPS.
*3.3 VOLTS ONLY - DO NOT USE 5 VOLTS!**
We recommend an input voltage of 3.3v. The result may not be immediate, but eventually supplying voltage out of component limits will kill it. Always verify prior to install that your system is giving the GPS the voltage you think it is via a multimeter. If your unit dies or fails to operate as you'd expect, this is likely the cause.
