Emlid GNSS/GPS RTK Drone Questions

  • Can you use Emlid RTK GNSS receivers with DJI RTK Drones?
    Yes you can! Depending on what Drone you buy, there may be a different setup process. However, they are all very simple and easy to do. For example, the Phantom 4 RTK drone uses NTRIP, which allows it and many other Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to receive corrections from an Emlid Reach RS2, RS2+ and even a Emlid RS+ Just setup your Emlid GNSS base stations and a DJI RTK drone as a rover. After you sync the two, you're ready to receive GPS corrections! For detailed information on how to setup your DJI RTK drone to you Emlid GNSS base station, please visit our FAQ page or email us at
  • What is the most affordable GNSS receiver with centimeter accuracy
    Currently one of the most accurate GPS/GNSS receivers for the price is the Emlid Reach RS+ at $799 per unit
  • How to turn any non RTK drone into a RTK drone with centimeter accuracy
    To install RTK onto your drone you must first install a rover unit onto your drone. We suggest using a Reach M2 with a Lora GNSS multiband radio antenna as your rover. Once you install them on your drone, you will want to connect them with a base station. We recommend using a Emlid Reach RS2+ with an Emlid radio antenna as you will be able to get centimeter accuracy while using via 4G/5G for connectivity. Here is a link to the full Drone RTK UAV Kit After syncing your Reach M2 to your Emlid Reach RS2 or RS2+ you will have full RTK with centimeter accuracy on any drone.
  • Difference between RS2 and RS2+
    The main difference is Upgrade from 3.5G modem to a 4G LTE or 5G connectivity There are no significant differences in performance. Contact for more questions.
  • How do you get centimeter accuracy with a GNSS/GPS receivers using DJI drones / UAV's
    First, you will need an Emlid Base Station such as this one Emlid Reach RS2+ From there you want to sync your Drone to you base station so that it may receive GPS corrections (See FAQ or contact us for setup instructions) once you do that, the key to really accurate data is how long you let the base station sit in one spot before flying the mission. The longer you let you base station sits, the more accurate your data will be. Some base stations need to sit for upwards of 24 hours before they can obtain centimeter accuracy. Please contact us for any questions you may have regarding Drones and GPS/GNSS receivers.
