I don't own one, just suggested it.

My tracker is good for 7 months, the Tiles may have a similar life span?

BTW, thanks for the reminder, my batteries have been active for over a year and still function.

Time to change them.
No prob. Maybe someone else on here can give some input on the TP.

Batteries last about 12 months in the Tile Pro. They cost about $0.75 USD each

I just got mine yesterday. I'll let you know...
Where’s best to attach, I would think the top is not ideal ( gps etc ) and the obvious place is behind the optical sensors on the bottom, this however is a higher point than the low slung landing rubbers leading to dodgy stability.

My Tile Pro is mounted on top cover and I still get 17 satellite signals. No problem

A Forum member lost his Spark in thick brush and the only way he found it was by chance the sunlight glistened off of the 4 brass contacts of the battery.

Here's the picture he took and I circled it.

I took a paper hole punch and made a bunch of dots from highly reflective D.O.T tape that really pops when the light hits it, should I have to do a search and rescue mission night or day.
Wow even though you circled it I still wouldn't of seen that.

Do you have a photo of it mounted? Does it affect flying in anyway other than potential GPS interference (or not in your case), such as flight instability due to effect on aerodynamics or quicker discharge of battery due to extra weight etc? Basically are there any noticeable negative effects?
I've just ordered a Tile Sport (I know it's less range, but was far cheaper than any other version I could find at the time) so would be interested in more specifics from your experience, thanks.
