Tomorrow I will give an update on the x-class build. I have gathered parts and am ready to move forward. This is the motivation behind the GPS research. The Technology has advanced and been updated within the past couple months. 

We decided to go with the cube (HEX) environment, but it appears the platform is moving slowly. There is a china developer simiular to this, they have a cube and they also have a new gps receiver which from nex all they have is discontinued and no information on the future releases. I purchased a yellow cube, that was a second choice, I bought the black one from getFPV but they were unavailable, this getfpv was not aware of and after 2 weeks I enquired and they just cancelled the order. So we at Daytona Drone cancelled our account at getFPV. There are way to many suppliers to get treated like we don't matter. getFPV is a terrible company, I'm sure there are lots of people with similar  experiences, best advice is just to avoid them. you have been warned

we are using HEX carrier board and trying to stay in their ecosystem
