In today’s show we talk about DJI’s newest launch – the Phantom 4 RTK. Can the Phantom 4 RTK prove to be the ultimate surveying solution? How does this DJI product compare with existing alternatives as far as technical capabilities and cost is concerned?
DJI recently launched the Phantom 4 Pro RTK. DJI is offering a drone, base station and the RTK unit at an unbelievable price. Is this too good to be true? You will learn if this RTK drone is equipped to handle highly precise mapping missions.
We discuss how making network connections will allow you to eliminate errors and achieve close vertical accuracies. How does the Phantom 4 RTK compare with other surveying systems like Leica and Trimble? Tune in to find out. Fly Safe!
