Video Drone – Do Carbon Fiber Props Affect GPS?

Please visit ift.tt/2kaajA9 for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode, we will be looking at Carbon Fiber Props and do cause issues with the GPS? A while back I flew the UpAir with carbon fiber props and there was talk the issues I was having were a result of using carbon fiber props as they were interfering with the GPS. Well I went to the bench, then outside to test this possibility and make this video so give it a watch and see what you think as you might be surprised (hint I was in the end).

Production Notes: because the video was running long I didn’t go into more detail as to the reasons for the side rejection however these [signals] are filtered from low elevations to reduce the effects of multipath and atmospheric delays.

The other piece is one of safety awareness, as because of the harness of a carbon fiber prop verses that of a plastic prop, they more apt to cause greater bodily harm should they come in contact with you or someone else so be safe and use responsibly.
