    When I go into telemetry mode on the TX it shows the GPS counting down. What does that mean?

    Hey Jim,

    Could you maybe take a screen pic and show me the location of what you are mentioning?  There is a count down timer that you can set for setting a specific flight time. There is also a count up timer that starts at zero from when you start the drone and take throttle above zero.

    The counter you are seeing I believe is the countdown timer. But maybe you can take a pic and share just to confirm.

    It’s not the timer. This says GPS with numbers next to it that tend to count down. I’ll get you a pic but can’t right now. My wife is around and she doesn’t know I bought this yet. It’s better off this stays our secret for now.

    The second and third pic show the count down numbers at GPS. The first shows a previous question about what that is telling me. The fourth I am considering it means GPS Not Available  or something like that.

    Thanks Jamie, All the best,

    PS. I’ve been flying around the living room again but I get a bad drift because of the broken arm fold screw.

    I’m sorry, referring to first pic I’m wondering about SAT info. 4/ 2  Two satellites out of four perhaps? How many satellites should I have to be safe for RTH

    Hey Jim,

    Thanks for the pics and your secret is safe with me… for now. hahaha

    In regards to the first pic… The system has dual GPS meaning it connects to 2 GPS systems. So the numbers are representative of how many satellites it’s connected to in each system.  Ideally having at least 4 in each is idea and should come pretty easily once outdoors. Anything above 5 and your definitely golden. Basically outdoors just wait for the flashing blue to go solid and this ensures you have really good signal.

    As for the GPS numbers then they just indicate the amount of spread of distance based on the GPS signal. As you go outside and those numbers become larger in satellites then that spread of distance number will greatly decrease meaning it will be tighter to the hold position from take off.
