Freefly RTK GPS
Need centimeter-level accuracy for your Alta X?? Freefly RTK GPS utilizes Real Time Kinematic (RTK) technology to enable pin-point location accuracy vertically and horizontally.
RTK technology uses a pair of modules to increase positional accuracy. One module will be installed on your Alta X (Rover), and one will be stationary on the ground, connected to your ground station computer (Ground Station). The Ground Station module sends corrections to the Rover module to enable the high-precision location information.
This kit comes with everything you need to install the module on the Alta X, and a magnetic quick-release mount to install the ground module to your existing tripod.
You can either have us install it when you order an Alta X (look for it in the build menu), or you can install it yourself if you already have an Alta X.
- For RTK to function, you must use Alta Ground Control with a telemetry link to the Alta X.
- If the Ground Station module is not active, the Alta will have standard GPS accuracy.
- Early production modules will be 3D printed (MJF) before we switch over to molded parts. This doesn't impact performance or reliability.
