Tinker Time Treehouse – How To Upgrade 3DR SOLO GPS to M8N ( mRobotics uBlox Neo-M8N GPS )05:30

Tinker Time Treehouse is what I like to call the time I set aside for projects, crafts, and tinkering with things. This is the first episode and I am installing the mRobotics uBlox Neo-M8N GPS chip into my 3DR Solo quad copter drone. This is a great upgrade and has increased the number of satellites as well as the accuracy of their lock (and the speed of lock is quicker too upon boot up).

Stay tuned or Subscribe if you like this, I will have a few more 3DR Solo Tinker Time Treehouse episodes coming up soon!!
