That’s why drone manufacturers scrutinize every component. When comparing each supplier’s products, they focus on finding the one that strikes the precise balance of performance and weight. A prime example is the patch antenna used for GNSS. A larger ground plane helps improve the antenna’s performance, but that additional size also increases weight — an unacceptable tradeoff.
