I am looking into buying a Phantom 4 RTK and wonder if I should purchase with it, the DJI D-RTK 2 Mobile Station, or if I should invest in a 3rd party GNSS Base Station. If so which GNSS Base Station would be a good choice? Thanks for your help.
I would ditch the D-RTK 2 and get an Emlid RS2. You’ll end up at about the same cost and the RS2 is much more robust. If you have CORS service in your area that you can access via NTRIP then you can set GCP’s as well. Most places have free service of some sort. The D-RTK 2 is junk as a rover.
I would highly recommend continuing to set 4-6 GCP’s, but your scenario may not require it. If you are going to the trouble to purchase a P4RTK I am betting so though. Alternatively if you have a good CORS service and don’t want to use GCP’s you could probably link the P4RTK directly to the CORS.
Hello Michael, thanks for input, I really appreciate your information.
