It’s very important that the configuration of U-Blox- GPS used is right for Arducopter32 firmware.

Without this configuration your board can freeze and don’t work properly 😦 Don’t fly without this patch to gps please !

This is the configuration file that you need to use for setup your GPS if is not a original 3DR GPS:
