Flight Controller for GPS Only?


I have several CC3D flight controllers lying around with UBLOX gps and 915 telemetry modules lying around, i had setup the telemetry on my CX20 quad, but them changed gears to fixed wing. started with a flying wing on cc3d, but never added GPS or telemetry to it. since i recently purchased a Revolt 30, and started to upgrade, i want to attach a CC3D, and GPS with telemetry to it.

The "Surface" function doesn't work with my pistol radio as one would expect. I want to feedback to a PC in mission planner or open pilot gps related data. speed, coordinates, etc. but i dont want the accelerometers to control the rudder on channel 1. or throttle on channel 2. Channel 3 is wide open.

Anyone able to just use the CC3D or any Flight controller for that matter to just feedback GPS information to a ground station?

What happens if you don't connect the outputs of the flight controller to the inputs of the devices you don't want it to control?

Since you said "any flight controller", I assume you'd be willing to buy hardware. Why not just pick up a UBLOX GPS and a microcontroller with the connection to the PC you want (USB, BLE, Wifi, RF, something else?)?
