    This is another product that relies on being within cell range to allow it to be found.

    But much of my flying is done in the wilderness- so this doesn't help. And it is in the wilderness that I really need a good system to find a missing UAV. My understanding is that the Phantom Vision will constantly track its location and send the co-ordinates back to the controller- so if it crashes, you'll have its last co-ordinates. That makes the most sense to me.

    But this new gizmo does seem to be the smallest out there.

    FrankB, check out the FMKit radio beacon thread at rcgroups:

    There are other radio beacons in use by RC pilots but it seems that the FMKit is quite popular. I have one myself but fortunately haven't needed to use it to recover the quad -- but I do have it on my Phantom.
