This is the FrSky Smart Port GPS Sensor used to plugs into the Smart Port on your X series receiver and reports GPS location and speed data.
This sensor is easy to use, just plug it into a Smart Port equipped receiver at one end, and position the sensor so the end marked "UP" has a clear view of the sky. This sensor does require an X series receiver with Smart Port. Taranis transmitter users may require a firmware update to take full advantage of this sensor.
Can report the following data to most devices: Altitude, position, speed, UTC time, etc. Taranis transmitter can data log this data for you.
Dimension: 40mm x 20mm x 9mm
Operational Voltage: 4 - 10 volts
Current Draw: 80mA @5V
Time to Fix: 30 seconds cold
Speed Accuracy: Aprox 0.1m/s
Position Accuracy: Approx 2.5m CEP
Limits: 4G/ 50,000 meters, 500 m/s
Smart Port ID#: 4 (can be changed with channel changer)
Compatibility: FrSky Smart Port enabled receivers such as the X8R, X6R, X4R, etc.
NOTE: In order to use this sensor with a DJT/DFT/DHT module, it is necessary to have a sensor hub (FSH-01) and solder a wire to the GPS module to connect to the GPS port of the sensor hub. The instruction for doing this can be found here.

It does everything it should in a small package (like a small ESC) on the ground - I haven't flown it yet, but I'm sure it will be a pleasure to log the flight for replay with google earth.

GPS is physically slightly smaller than a 30 amp ESC. I plugged mine in to the receiver smart port. I expected a longer time to find satellites on the first power up, but it only took the 30 secs advertised. Gives me good data that cross checks very well. I love the unit, and using velcro it can easily be moved.

I had been wanting to add the GPS to my 100" sailplane to compliment the vario, so I can start mapping out thermal activity at my flying site. Helibatics shipped fast, and the GPS works great.

How can you argue with functionality at dirt-cheap prices? The frsky sensors are making telemetry affordable for the masses.
Get 'em wile they're hot!

This is another great product it takes about 2 minutes or less once you hook it up then power it up to get locked in on a satilite and then it's dead on. Checked it with my smartphone and its within 6".
