Today, we talk about Propeller Aeropoints. Should you use Propeller Aeropoints as your ground control points? Is this a cost effective and efficient solution? Are there better alternatives that you can consider?
If you are doing drone mapping and modeling, you will have to use ground control points in order to create an accurate model. Because, our caller is considering Propeller Aeropoints, we discuss its various pros and cons. We discuss durability, cost and accuracy.
Reach RS, a RTK GNSS receiver by Emlid is another alternative that we discuss. How does the Reach RS compare to Propellor Aeropoints in terms of accuracy and cost? We also discuss the viability of purchasing a Trimble surveying system. Thanks to Eric for the question! Fly safe!
