They forget 2 important information:

- distance from home
- home arrow

well for that price it's hard to buy just the GPS module..

And airspeed is false, should be read groundspeed, from GPS.
There is no pressure sensor visible, and at this price...

For some manufacturers, you can't even get the GPS receiver at that price.

No grounds for complaint really. Pretty sure it'll be all gone by tonight.

Exactly! Too bad it would have been a hot product.

Do you think the GPS chip is compatible with the remzibi? Or is there a cheaper alternative for a GPS plug and play chip for it?

I wonder what the features are for the "apache osd" from the same manufacturer and if it will show up on HK too.

I do think the GPS module will be compatible with most existing OSD. So I agree with Borneobear, the price is very reasonable. However I do think in near future there will be added some new features as Distance to home, home arrow, and so on. Remember, that started with an 9$ OSD which was capable to display just voltages.

I will give a hundred dollars to whoever actually gets a correct GPS reading out of this thing. (yeah right)

Dont get me wrong I love HK but they can barely even get the KV right on there motors let alone provide spot on GPS.

I have compiled a list of cheap (and I think pretty good) GPS devices here: http://www.hongkongtrades.com/post/C...S-modules.aspx
