Along with the new version of the software for FPV System appeared Buddy Flight ™ functionality. It supports multi plane FPV group flights by displaying on the OSD screen position of all planes in the group like on radar. As a result you can see not only models that are in camera field of view like on the picture below, but also those on the back, on sides or located at a different altitude.
From the pilot side, the group flight looks like on the video below.
The position of the second model can be seen on the radar as a triangle pointing down when model is lower than ours, then as a point underlined on the top and bottom when it is on altitude similar to our model.
At the same time on the radar can be visible up to 6 different models.
The locks are in 3 sizes:
Sizes 12 and 16mm are on stock, the 22mm will be available soon.
They are compatible with our boom blocks. If you have copter made with it, now you can make the arms folding for better transport.
Update: All sizes are on stock!

Detailed data about sizes and weight are given in the product description in the shop:
In October appeared in PitLab.Shop module with combined GPS-GLONASS receiver and optional magnetometer. Module is very interesting for flying models because offer twice the number of satellites from GPS and GLONASS constellations. Bigger number of visible satellites means better position prediction. It is visible in smaller position noise and lower dilution of precision presented in VDOP and HDOP data.
Configuration of the module is identical as used to this time GPS modules. Different is protocol, because uses additional NMEA messages dedicated to GLONASS system. All our products (OSD, AP and APL) support GPS-GLONASS modules and it's protocol.
Like his earlier brother, the GPS-GLONNAS modules, has the ability to mount on the board of one of the three magnetometer chip: HMC5883, MAG3110 and MMC3140.
