With its high-precision mapping capabilities, the Phantom 4 RTK is the perfect tool for industrial users. The Phantom 4 RTK is described by DJI as its most compact and accurate low-altitude mapping solution. Sharing a similar camera and form size with the previous Phantom series drones, it also boasts a RTK positioning module, a new TimeSync system and a purpose-built mission-planning app.
Fewer ground-control points needed for accurate data collection.
D-RTK2 mobile station, providing accurate results in areas with bad mobile coverage.
Long battery life, providing up to 30 minutes of flight time.
Integrated flight-planning app.
Operation resumption function, meaning that the flight will automatically resume after battery change.
Supports both RTK and PPK solutions.
Next generation mapping with Phantom 4 RTK
The Phantom 4 RTK achieves a new standard for drone accuracy, giving users centimetre-accurate data.
Improved accuracy on image metadata is achieved through centimetre-level positioning data, thanks to a new RTK module.
The flight controller, camera and RTK module are continually aligned by the new TimeSync system, which also ensures that each photo uses the most accurate metadata.
Precise imaging system
The Phantom 4 RTK can move while taking pictures without the risk of rolling shutter blur. Thanks to its high resolution, the Phantom 4 RTK can achieve a Ground Sample Distance of 2.74cm at 100 metres flight altitude.
Flight planning application
A new GS RTK app gives control with two planning modes - photography and waypoint flight - as well as a more traditional flight mode.
Pilots can choose the drone’s flight path, while adjusting elements such as speed, altitude and camera parameters.
Furthermore, the app has a range of features such as a strong wind alarm, to warn pilots of adverse weather conditions, while image exposure is kept consistent thanks to a new shutter photography mode.
D-RTK 2 Mobile Station
The Phantom 4 RTK is complemented by the D-RTK 2 Mobile Station, which gives real-time differential data to the drone and helps to compile the most accurate data for surveying and mapping.
Key differences between the Phantom 4 RTK and the Phantom 4 Advanced/Pro
One of the biggest differences is that the Phantom 4 RTK has been made with industrial users in mind, thanks to its high-precision mapping abilities, while previous Phantom models were built for professional photographers and hobbyists.
When it comes to the camera, the Phantom 4 RTK has improved capabilities for mapping, thanks to a new lense distortion recording process.
Multiple changes mean that the Phantom 4 RTK remote controller is more versatile and has more features for industrial users. The remote controller has a micro-SD card slot and built-in speaker, while it can be used to connect to the internet for Network RTK with a 4G dongle.
