The DJI Phantom 4 series is sadly no longer in production, but it still remains one the best all-round drones for survey photogrammetry and 3D modelling.
It’s a drone that still produces exceptional results when it comes to aerial photogrammetry and orthomosaic capture. Its 20MP camera is sharp and detailed, and with its fast mechanical shutter, you can avoid rolling shutter rolling shutter issues that can mess with your map renderings.
But finding a cost-effective, survey-grade PPK and GNSS solution for the Phantom 4 is not easy. Sure, there’s the Phantom 4 RTK available from DJI, but it’s an expensive proposition, especially when you include the D-RTK 2 base station.
However, Dronesurvey Asia is now able to exclusively offer the TeoKit PPK solution for Phantom 4 series drone operators in Hong Kong and Macau.
Based in Russia, Teodrone’s developers have come up with a cost-effective and highly accurate PPK solution, which adds significant precision enhancement to the venerable Phantom 4 for mapping and photogrammetry.
The TeoKit PPK and GNSS solution currently works with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro (v1.0 and v2.0) and Phantom 4 Advanced.
Phantom 4’s are still available, mostly on the second hand market, but if well looked after, this is a drone that can still offer years of reliable service.
TeoKit: What we Offer
In order for any RTK/PPK drone to work effectively, you need an enhanced GNSS module on the drone itself, and you need a base station. The TeoKit consists of a replacement GNSS antenna for the P4, an Emlid Reach M+ RTK GNSS module, additional PCB modules to synchronise and write precise metadata to images, and all wiring and connectors.
For the aircraft, we offer two options:
- A complete Phantom 4 unit with a preinstalled, tested and verified TeoKit: we’ll source a suitable Phantom 4 Pro, Pro 2.0 or Advanced, and install the TeoKit for you, or;
- TeoKit installation, testing and verification on your own Phantom 4: for your Phantom 4 Pro, Pro 2.0 or Advanced.
The TeoKit aircraft set is provided as either a TeoKit Lite (without the Emlid Reach M+ RTK GNSS module, as some customers have their own Reach M+ units), or TeoKit M+ which of course incudes the Reach M+ RTK GNSS module.
Either way, the TeoKit is reliable and delivers exceptional results, all for a considerable cost saving over DJI’s own RTK drone solutions.
