    Hey my question today actually is not about dji.
    So here it is:
    If i have a gps unit, let say ublox Neo-M8N gps module. Is it possible to attach 2 ceramic antenna to it? Will it be any better than only using 1 antenna?

    I have 4 M8N gps units on my other birds (APM FC) I have no idea how you'd do that.. Just thinking out loud, why do you feel you need it? The HDOP on my M8Ns are typically under 1.4 which is basically pegging the meter on signal strength AFAIK.

    I think the main thing is to keep the gps as far away from ESCs, flight controllers, receivers and any wiring in the bird. Some folks like to put copper or aluminum foil tape under the gps to further isolate any noise or emf.
