    So I have been trying to research about finding your lost Phantom with a GPS tracker. Awesome. Need that. In fact, going to put this on before I even purchase the GoPro, POV system, etc. Might as well have a way to find it before I put more stuff on it.

    My question is, which one are you guys using??

    The TK102B seems to be mentioned the most. Is this the one?

    -Is this very reliable?
    -Is there a magnet that would need to be removed?
    -My other (and main) question I had about the TK102B is regarding the SIM card you would need to put inside of it. I have a CDMA phone without a SIM card so I would have to purchase one. But I'm not sure how... Someone somewhere mentioned TracPhone, but then someone else posted that they "lock" the SIM card to the TracPhone only? How do you pick up a SIM cardthat could be transferred to the tracker that you can call on if needed? I'm sure it would be some type of pay-as-you-go plan, but which one??

    Thanks for your advice!

    (In USA BTW)
