Real-time Kinematic (RTK) Kit for Airpeak 

High precision positioning using RTK GNSS (Real-Time Kinematic Global Navigation Satellite System) is possible by installing the system on the aircraft. RTK enables the generation of highly accurate point cloud data and 3D models with accuracy within a few centimeters, compared to GNSS with accuracy within a few meters. The obtained positioning information is recorded as mapping data on an SD card5 inserted in the interface unit, along with the corresponding image data file name. The mapping data is saved in a format compatible with various Structure from Motion (SFM) software. The positioning information is synchronized with high precision with the timing of image data capture and the recorded position is offset from the antenna position to the center of the image sensor. The use of this system makes it possible to link highly accurate geotagging of images

High-precision positioning information from RTK GNSS is used to achieve high-precision control of the aircraft during flight. Self-positioning accuracy during manual and automated flight is improved, enabling precise operation and highly accurate automated flight path reproduction. Hovering and flight stability are also improved compared to positioning using only GNSS.

The base station of the RTK GNSS receiver consists of a remote controller and an antenna unit for the base station connected by a USB cable. The remote controller sends GNSS correction data to the aircraft.

Alternatively to use of the included base station antenna, Connection to GNSS correction data services is possible by configuring the network RTK on the "Airpeak Flight" mobile app.

Two antenna units for the aircraft allow it to recognize its heading and fly even in environments with strong magnetic field interference where the aircraft's built-in compass cannot be used.

Post processed kinematic (PPK) logging is possible with collected data sets of the platform

The RTK system is designed to detect the movement or toppling of the base station. A notification appears on the mobile app if there is a change in the positioning of the base station due to strong winds or people bumping into the base station.

Dual operation is possible by connecting a second remote controller to the base station, allowing flexible operation to meet user needs

The antenna units for aircraft can be folded and stored with ARS-S1 without detaching from the aircraft

While the FAA does not require insurance for drone flights, we highly recommend having insurance in case of mishaps with flying drones.  When you rent a drone it is your responsibility to use it in a manner consistent with the laws and return the drone in the same condition it was in before rental.  

There are two types of insurance for drones. 

  • Liability: One is liability insurance, this will cover your flights in the event of a crash or incident.

  • Hull Coverage: Hull coverage covers the drone if it is damaged.  Typically you must have liability insurance to get hull insurance.  The Sensor may also be covered separately if it is a removable sensor.

Check with your insurance provider to see if they cover the drone rental and flights.  If they do not, we highly recommend that you have insurance when you are flying drones.  We have found that offers some of the best options for Drone Insurance.
