Emlid Reach RS+ Testing

Good morning all! I’m currently in the field testing the new Emlid Reach RS+ GPS receivers. Things are going well so far, but I will warn you of one thing that I learned up front is that these units do not collect data at the speed of a survey grade Trimble or topcon system. I had to capture the base point 20 minutes and I am sitting on each gcp for about 5 minutes to get decent accuracy. Mind you that this is a scenario of Unknown Origin set up, we’re usually I would have a known surveyed point and be entering in those coordinates manually so that the rest of the points I shoot with the RS+ are consistent with our existing control. so on the positive side is that they have a drone deploy export for the data. Basically you shoot it in and hit export and it creates a CSV with the headers and everything already formatted.
