Better GPS Accuracy

FreeFly Systems launched a new product this week with the RTK GPS system for the Alta X drone. The Alta X drone is an amazing piece of technology and a great platform for heavy lift applications. The RTK technology uses a pair of modules to increase positional accuracy making flights more precise and repeatable. One module gets installed on your Alta X (Rover), and one will be stationary on the ground, connected to your ground station. The Ground Station module sends corrections to the Rover module to enable the high-precision location information. It really does make a difference too as you can see in the video below. The only downside to the RTK system is more gear to carry around and setup, but it's a small price to pay when you need higher positional accuracy for your flights. Speaking of price, the FreeFly RTK system is available to purchase right now at $1995.

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. FreeFly can install it for you when you order an Alta X (look for it in the build menu), or you can install it yourself if you already have a the drone.
