Is this 3.3v or 5v?
 tricopterY 871 points
This module operates at 3.3V. You supply 5V to the molex connector, and the onboard 3.3V voltage regulator (Low Drop Out) runs the board. I guess the LDO is capable of higher input voltages, say up to 12V, but I have not tried that (too risky - it may fry it).

can anyone give me gps fix of this ???after i had done gps fix and WHEN i made it to loiter it is moving after few secs...please hELP!!!!!!!!!

you need at least 6 sats for better precision, if your quad moves in loiter you need to tune the P value, if you're using APM it's suggested to flash your GPS with 3DR ublox file...

very diaspointed with this NEO-6M , my copter today crached into my car................. Mediatek MT3329 is much better than this UBLOX

So... Can tell us what happen?

I've set configurations with ublox, installed 3DR-ublox.txt config, then connected to my Arducopter, connected the battery and was waiting for 10-15 minutes to get satellites, the first problem was that could not get satellites, found 8 satellites and thed dropped to 4, several times was like this until seemed to be ok at 8 , then started my Arducopter, flyed in position hold for 1 minute and then swithced to loiter, so i've lost control in loiter. It was at 10 meters from my car until I switched back to stabilize it went directly to my car.... with mediatek is loitering in a radius of 5 meters stable..... next time I will grab my desktop to show, maybe my UBLOX is defective.........

Works fine. Came setup w/ 38400baud,5Hz, NMEA. Set mine to binary UBX with U-center using 3DR-Ublox.txt. Runs fine with MegaPirateNG2.8r3. Hotstart fix < 2seconds. Good value for it´s price.

I got mine and was excited about it. Installed it on Multwii AIO-2560 and defined UBLOX and buad-rate 57600. The power LED stayed on for few minutes and I got a Blinking Red LED (GPS LOCK on the NEO - Wow, the damn thing works - in Sydney Australia) and FC yellow LED started blinking a sequence, and I was indoors. After a power down and following days, I have been unable to get a GPS Lock. I have done absolutely nothing to it, just a simple cycle down. I have tried it outside and still nothing.....Just steady Red LED. Very unreliable.
