    Yuneec Q500 4k.
    I launched twice in two locations... successfully but when I changed batteries Drone would not launch. No readings on controller. Red light on the back flashing indicating no fly zone which was not possible because I just landed and have flown in this area numerous times. After troubleshooting this morning i got everything showing up on the controller except the GPS. I took off the gimbal and followed the wire to sensor under the plate. Is this the GPS sensor, because there was a wire that looked frayed. I'm hoping its as simple as this.

    Does the gps module there also have a watch type battery like the craft itself.

    Yes, it has a rechargeable backup battery for RTC.
    Without it the GPS fix takes longer because the ublox chip needs to make a cold-start.
    The GPS module is inside. On the nose inside is the compass sensor. Do you mean that?

    Did it play a sound when red blinking?
