How to do flight with Real Time Kinematic (RTK).
Please refer to the explanations below.
When flying with RTK, your pictures are being corrected immediately, eliminating the need to have the SC Edge logging correction data.
You can calculate a 3D point cloud with the pictures coming straight from the DJI Phantom 4 RTK.
An RTK flight doesn’t require a lot of set-up but depending on your location, the NTRIP account from your local GNSS authority can be a free or paid subscription.
- Immediate satellite corrections to the drone pictures
- SIM card has to be installed in drone controller
