these are my settings.Please watch out to leave min 6 satellites to get a fix!! this is mandatory to get a good position hold!!! I see you put in 5.

Thanks for the quick answer! My drone is affected to “toilet bowl effect” and I really don’t know why. I tried to recalibrate the compass multiple times but the problem persist. How and where did you fix your GPS on the drone??

I put it IN the nose of the drone. Quite similar to your placement, but in the drone, not on the drone.

what is a toilet bowl effect?

Are you serious?
I have just re-designed it from scratch and uploaded it on thingiverse. I though it was good and useful for the community. You can upload it on thingiverse and i will create a "remix".
Dont be mad at me.

How come it's exactally the same file as the one i uploaded here then.

I'm deadly serious, I believe you've taken my prop adaptor files I kindly drew out and uploaded to here and you've posted them on thingiverse under your name.

There are measurements on those adaptors that I made up and those measurements are on those designs.

Still copied then, still my design, still no permission given, still no credit given.
Funny yours have same error mine did, same size angle mine did, same size flatter diameters mine did.
I'll let thingiverse decide, I'm never posting stls anywhere again.

As you offered via pm will be fine Thank you.
You say you designed and drew it, at best you drew it but it's my design.

If it's removed it's matter over.

Hey, I have problems with my gps. I use the sp racing f3 and this nz gps:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/Super-Mini-NZ-GPS-with-LED-for-NAZE32-Flip32-6dof-10dof-best-for-QAV250-ZMR250/232287368499?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I connected the wires like you and did the setup in inav like you, but gps is all time red in inav.
I changed RX and TX but same problem.
Any idea what can I do?
Thanks

I had the same when trying indoors. Is that what you do? In that case, go outside and try again. give it some time. Normally you should see in the GPS tab that the GPS is sending signals.
