In this video we add a GPS to the CC3D. As we discussed in the first video in the series this is of limited value as we cannot use the GPS for GPS flight modes (GPS Hold or GPS Home) as you need the CC3Ds bigger brother, the Revolution that has the compass and more memory, to fly GPS modes.

The GPS will provide GPS co-ordinates for telemetry and OSD though.
