GPS unit for Skylark Dianmu


Hey guys...before I take the plunge and order a new GPS unit for my Skylark Dianmu, I'll give this another try. I need the GPS/INS unit for my Dianmu, after a pretty nasty crash the cable connector broke off and I wasn't able to solder the cables directly, because there was no metal there to solder. I tried tracing the circuit to find another contact point, but it was useless. I even bought a Skylark Tiny OSD III hoping that the GPS unit was the same, to no avail.

So, before I order another GPS/INS unit from China, please send me PM offers, if you happend to have one of these things lying around

Thanks!

its the same serial in/out you require too, it might be a bit bigger by a couple mm's but the ublox is a great gps unit

The Dianmu GPSIN has 2 functions with GPS board on top and all the gyros and acc on the bottom board so is proprietary I would think.

Yes your only option is repair or new one I think.
