Can you give us more details regarding the GPS capabilities ? Will it provide RTH as a fail safe ? What extra parts will I need to purchase ? Which radio do you recommend ?

I posted it in previous thread, is the weight of 440g with or w/o battery? It says battery not included, if I understand it correctly the kit comes without a battery, but the weight measured with battery.

They are actually, but the wire connected to the ESCs is different. The MT2204 in the kit comes with a connector which goes directly to the board. :-)

If GPS feature is enable, CH3 and CH4 are GPS Signal Pin(CH3:TX,CH4:RX). If use CPPM receiver, CH5 and CH6 are not used. If use standard receiver, CH1(AIL), CH2(ELE), CH5(THR), CH6(RUD). For RTF, you just need one battery with XT60 connector (Suggested battery size: 3-4S 1300-2200mah 35C). For ARF, you need battery and transmitter.

How do I enable GPS feature ? What GPS module do I have to buy ? Does the RTF radio include the CPPM receiver ? I'm a noobie, so I'm not sure what you are saying.

I just want to know what I have to buy so that I can have RTH as a fail safe.

You can choose GPS according to your need. GPS with TX, RX signal pin can be used.

The RTF transmitter is not CPPM but we have the port for CPPM transmitter.
