Need centimeter-level accuracy for your Alta X or Astro? Freefly RTK GPS utilizes Real Time Kinematic (RTK) technology to enable pin-point location accuracy vertically and horizontally. 

Product Details

Add this Ground Station module to your ground station computer to unlock Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technology for centimeter location accuracy horizontally and vertically. 

Alta X with F9P GPS installed (not compatible with Here2 GPS). 

RTK Overview
RTK technology uses a pair of modules to increase positional accuracy. One module is installed on the aircraft (this module is called the “Rover") and the other will mount on a tripod and be connected to your ground station computer (the “Ground Station” module).


The Ground Station module will let your ground station computer send GPS corrections to the Rover module (on the aircraft) that increase precision from a few meters to a few centimeters, in real-time.
