Day 249

Recently got into Drone / Quadcopters and having lost one already… well.. you know.. This is going to come in handy for Smurf, Copters and my bicycles !!!..

The ” Marco Polo Pet Monitoring System ” should allow me to find a crashed copter or a Smurf who takes off after a squirrel.

I looked at the low cost GPS trackers, but most of them need a sim card ( cell phone signal ) to function.. .this system is independent so it works anywhere.. like in places without cell service and no monthly cell ph bill to use it !

Day 249 - gps 1

Not cheap, but after countless years of researching these things…. it’s the best i’ve been able to find for the price .. The dog, crashed copters and when leaving my expensive electric bikes tied to racks in town, i can track thieves and get some ” justice ” …. good stuff !

Day 249 - gps 2
