Started to use my Trackimo with the MA, using this mount the aerodynamics is not too badly affected, only at the point of take-off is there a small side slip until the AC compensates for the trackimo, then it behaves as normal.

The trackimo needs to be raised for propeller clearance underneath it.

Is this a GPS tracker? Looks a bit cumbersome.

How is the battery life?

You can control the data transfer intervals from the phone app to extend the battery life, it also goes to sleep and can be pinged to wake it up.

The 600 mah battery lasts up to 72 hours for active tracking and 150 hours on standby

Yes it is a GPS tracker - 3g model, the mount is a bit over engineered, you could mount it in the middle of the upper body or underside of the battery  by velcro. Out of the mount the Trackimo 3g unit is quite small.

The form factor is better with the MP or MPP, which what I normally use it on, the MA and the Spark are very small so there are limited mounting points.
However you can't mount the Trackimo out the back of a MA due to the rear vision sensors.

Here it is on the MPP , it's less cumbersome mounted this way, out the back

Yes it has a similar function in theory to find my drone on the DJI Go 4 app.

The reason I went with a back up 3g tracker is that FMD is notoriously unreliable, if you've read a number of flyaway posts on the forum, you would have seen that in most instances FMD has not been able to pin point the location the drone. I wouldn't use it as the only locator.

The trackimo 3g is extremely accurate if you have the cell coverage and it has virtually unlimited range when within the cell network

It has enough battery life to get you 5km away according to the spec

Normally you get around 17 minutes probably, but with the trackimo?

This is the link you wanted to post. The link starting with https... should be in a new line and the m. in front of youtube needs to be removed as well:
