Today, we discuss tracking devices. Should you attach one to your drone? Will it interfere with your GPS signal?
Whether or not you need (or should use) a tracking device depends on the type of drone you’re using. Many new drones come pre-equipped with tracking devices. If you’re flying a Phantom 4 Pro or Mavic Pro, for example, you can use DJI Go to track your drone. This applies to a number of DJI’s newest models. It even works in the case of a flyaway. If, somehow, you lose the battery, DJI Go will let you know where the GPS was last transmitted. Therefore, you may want a tracking device. However, you’ll only need one if you have an older model drone.
