My point was its non GPS enabled, at a price point that makes it a nonstarter for probably anyone with a brain, when there are more capable FCs at almost half the price, and GPS enabled ones for slightly more then double.

The KK 2.1.5 you reference is $25.

Which is probably why I've never seen anyone on the multirotor section of this forum post about using it, at least not in recent history.

Back on topic to the ZYX M now....

Dude, you are WAY out of line.

I was just stating a fact. I wasn't saying it was better or you should run out and buy one.

My point was the ZYX S was Tarot's first QUADCOPTER flight controller, nothing more, nothing less.

No A Naza GPS will not work with the Tarot FC, besides the wiring, totally different communication protocols

With any GPS puck that has not been turn on for a while, a cold start can take up to 5 minutes to start tracking sats... once this has been done it will take much shorter time

It should not be! but here some days worse than others!!
We need OSD so we can see how many sats you are getting...
You could take laptop outside and go to tools and see the Sat error box!

Do you FPV gear or GoPro on?
turn off everything except tarot
Post a pic of your craft maybe GPS puck to close to something else!!

Hopefully this thing works as advertised, looks pretty good from the couple short reviews so far!

I ordered it from Tarot about a week ago and it is still processing, anybody else have an idea how long it usually takes them to ship out?

Well if they had them in stock they ship FAST!!!!!
I ordered a second one and got an email back on 23rd saying they were out of stock and it would be 10 to 15 days.... 4 days later I found one at Arris Hobby... asked for a refund, they replied saying stock in tomorrow.... that was 6 days ago.... have been begging for a refund... NOW they won't even answer emails!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is pretty good FC!! does a lot!! Easy to setup!!! suppose to be coming out with OSD... yeah heard this song and dance before!!!
