Matek SAM-M8Q GPS

USD $28.99

 

Every time you send your long range FPV drones up in the air on long range missions, you're taking risks. But there are ways to minimize your risks like installing a GPS unit, or a standalone buzzer unit on the drone. Those measures will help track your drone if and when it goes down. Matek SAM-M8Q is a low-cost preventive measure that you will want to install on your long range FPV drones.
