  • The Smart Port GPS (GPS V2) 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. Early 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
    Weight: 11g
    Operational Voltage: 4 - 10 volts
    Current Draw:  80mA @5V

    GPS Sensor. What to expect from it.

    May be I am being unfair to rate this at 3, but that is because I overrated the telemetry capabilities of the Taranis. My fault. Nothing wrong with it. The GPS is a bit too sensitive to other electronics, like the receiver itself. It must be installed as far as possible, with less stuff on top as possible. Depending on the installation it will be the time it takes to the GPS to hook up with the satellites. I have two installed in different planes. One of them hooks up in less than a minute, the other takes several minutes to hook up. The location is reasonable accurate (within 5 to 10 meters). Unfortuately, the readings are not good when doing aerobatics, specially the altitude. I bought it with the idea of using it to set up landing slope, distance and altitude but I assumed that the data will be received and processesed in less than a second by the transmitter. Big mistake. The information lags 5 or more seconds the real world. In other words, when the TX indicated the plane was a 100m, it was actually landing in front of me. However, this device may be an excellent lost plane localizer. I use them in my most expensive planes, just in case. Nice thing to see your flight in Google Earth, although that is just for fun or to locate a lost plane. Beyond, all the above, if someone thinks that my experience managing the telemetry data is wrong because I may be making some mistake in my setup, it would be great to have some more experienced pilot to let me know how to make an almost real time telemetry data processing.
