3D Robotics, the company which provides the MediaTek MT3329 GPS antenna modules used in the HoverflyGPS, has announced the following improvements in their product:
-3DR uBlox footprint
-Larger ground plane
-Battery for hot starts
-New firmware - No longer uses any smooth filtering or position prediction. Update rate is now 5hz.
These improvements will make acquiring a GPS fix much quicker and prevent unintended movements due to the GPS. We will begin shipping the new and improved MediaTek antennas with all new and outstanding orders as of Friday, November 16th. If you already own a HoverflyGPS, the new antenna module is available directly through 3D Robotics' online store, http://store.diydrones.com/
