Another note is that small action cameras have problems being really noisy and emitting something close to 1.2ghz which is what the GPS receiver uses...I am currently battling this with my Mobius and Naza, the second I turn the Mobius on, I drop to just 3 satellites
CGO1 uses 5Ghz Wifi but is still creating problems!
I thought maybe going to 5Gig would help not guess not!

Maybe it is interfering with the GPS? Do you get a full GPS lock when the camera is on?

It's short range though ... move the camera and puck as far apart as possible, ideally with something solid (like the pack) in between. I've never had any problems.

Awesome looking build, what gimbal is that?

I am running my Naza on my mini hex, only have the top of the frame to mount my Mobius and the GPS Puck. For now I made a copper box to help block most of the interference, I can get a solid lock in seconds. But it is in an annoying box haha

It's just a cheap GoPro gimbal from GoodLuckBuy in China. Needed a few tweaks but is light and works well. Had it nearly a year now.

Can't you mount the Mobius underneath somewhere?

No and that seems to be the issue. If I do get a lock it goes in and out in flight.
If GPS is weak it will not lock with camera on.

Don't have any space since I have my 5.8Ghz transmitter there.
I attached a picture of my hex, the Mobius isn't on it, but I put it on top above the FPV camera.

Try making a box for the camera out of cardboard and covering the box with Copper Foil Tape, it fixes the problem, just makes it annoying to start/stop recording.

I attached a picture of my camera in the box I made for it, maybe you could try something like that.
