Yes, but not very useful at only 5mm wide.
The best value I could find was this.

That roll at 2" x 55 yards or 2x1980 inches is about the best value for the money though.
That's 1.2 cents per sq in, versus 2 cents/sq in for the 1/4" wide roll above.
Check out these prices.

$20 for 2x180 in, is 5.5 cents per sq in. Ouch.

Sorry not on topic, but I read once in the DOSD thread that someone grounded its GPS module to a metal plate put Under the module. This made for faster aquisition of satellites. Could such tape be used for that ? One would put a piece of copper tape under the module and solder it to the ground wire of the GPS ?

Yes, copper tape (provided it is grounded) can be used to help with SOME GPS antennas. I say SOME because not all are improved by this at all...and it can actually hurt performance.

But it's a cheap and easy trick to try and if it doesn't work, very easy to undo.

Cheaper for a smallish quantity, still 2x more expensive per sq-in than the big 55yrd roll on Amazon.

Or a few of your FPV buddies.

Will be interesting to see if I can make this huge pile of worthless digital display Rxs I have,
worth something.

Pile ? I suspect you garnish your shelves of more FPV stock than you can use...but so goes FPV, "da hobby that digs in your pockets"

Actually, I actively use/lose/abuse/mangle/destroy quite a few Sunsky Txs.
Sold a couple to others as well. For every one of them, I have a worthless digital
display Rx + one equally worthless RMRC V1 or V2 version of the same.
