Hope to see the drone mods tracker back in stock..For flyaway recovery, I plan to get the Drone Mods UAV Locator. It is just a bit heavier and (considering service plan) more expensive than the lightest, cheapest option (Trax), but actually works. I can speak from experience that the Trax system is too unreliable for practical use.
Awesome. .I thought when you bought a drone mods tracker the first year of service is included. .checked out the website today and I believe that you need to pay an additional fee for the service plus the cost of the tracker,which puts the total at around 200.00 us....the trackimo tracker comes with one year of service included with the device for around 125.00 us..They are back in stock...

The Trackimo device weighs three quarters and costs half ($99.97 direct) of the Drone-Mods device and is well reviewed on Amazon. What's not to like!!
The only downside might appear to be battery life, but let's think about that for a moment. Drone-Mods advertises up to 12 days from its 1300 mAh battery, while Trackimo claims a more realistic 48 to 72 hours fom its 600 mAh battery. Actual users have been getting a full day out of the Trackimo, which is more than adequate considering the Inspire's 18 to 22 minute flight time. If I can't find it within 24 hours of a crash or flyaway, there is no realistic chance I will locate it 12 days later.
For the range obsessed, the additional 42 grams of the Trackimo increases the Inspire 1's weight by 1.4%, decreasing flying time by 1.1% (not taking into account any additional aerodynamic drag penalties).
Looks like I'll be ordering the Trackimo instead. Now if only I could get DJI to ship an Inspire 1 to mount it on...
I second the PET TRACKER. Recently lost a PhantomV2+ and took 4 days to recover. Will NOT be doing that again. The "find my phantom" got me close....and 4 more days of a search pattern covering several square miles of space got me the drone back. If I had had a GPS that continued to report points I would have found it much sooner.i know it's a little earlier but has anyone gave this a thought ?
