The remote GPS requires a small modification to the FlightBox case. The GPS plugs into the top-center USB port (above the 978 MHz radio module). Please see the Remote GPS Installation tutorial for installation instructions.
The remote ADS-B Antenna Kit allows you to blind-mount your FlightBox in a cool / shaded location. Please see the Remote Antenna Kit Tutorial video for assembly instructions.
