Hi Everyone,
I've seen many posts about cracked GPS Modules due to crashes and the way the frame of the P2 can hit the module. Is there a way to insulate the frame to give it a bit of cushion incase something may happen and it crashes?
I've ordered a few of the parts from digikey because I know myself and will likely have a couple of "oh no" moments.
Anyhow....Just a thought.

PS. Do stickers on the drone affect the GPS at all? I'm looking to get a camo kit to put on it.

You really need to crash hard to crack the ceramic puck. Just do yourself a favour and upgrade to a 4dbi from digi key. Grab a few pucks as the delivery is expensive to Australia.

And stickers do affect the GPS if they are metallic. This will act like foil and deflect the signal.

I bought 3 of the pucks from digi key. Two - 2dbi and one 4dbi. Just need to get my bird back from DJI. going to be a long 6 weeks...
The stickers I'm looking at are from china, I don't think they are metallic but I will have to check.
