Drone-Mods.com, which specializes in the distribution of products that enhance the consumer’s experience with the Parrot® AR Drone, today announced an expansion to their distribution network to include the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Locator; a simple, effective, reliable solution for retrieving the location of your aerial vehicle in the event of a fly-away.
The Drone Mods UAV Locator is a small, lightweight, self-powered, standalone module that attaches to your aerial vehicle. If the pilot loses site of the vehicle, or experiences a fly-away, they simply call the phone number assigned to the device. Within a few minutes, the pilot will receive a text message and an email containing a Google Maps link with the GPS (latitude/longitude) coordinates of the device.
The Drone Mods UAV Locator is powered by GTX Corp, one of the leaders and most reputable GPS tracking companies in the United States. “We tested many tracking solutions prior to working with GTX and discovered they were not reliable enough to report an accurate position each and every time and many used outdated protocols,” said Bob Lorincz, president of Drone-Mods.com. “We are extremely satisfied with the product and service GTX provides us and look forward to a long lasting partnership.”
