after abit of research, I’ve bought the Tuffwing PPK kit for the Phantom 4 Pro. The Tuffwing has a M+ while I use RS2’s in the field for GCP collection.
We are having shocking weather here at the minute, so my window to get the job right is rather small.
I’d like to confirm what I intend to do and ask a few questions:
I’ll use my RS2 as a base with an average time of about 5minutes. I have used this same average position everytime I’ve marked out my GCPs. Will the relatively low accuracy on my base matter?
I’ll be logging GPS, GLONASS, and QZSS. Why can’t I log BEIDOU etc too? Are they L2?
The instructions say to have an update rate of 5hz, Emlid say 1hz. Is this simply a matter of space? to store the files? Wouldn’t higher be better?
I’ve been repeatedly asked for the height of the antenna on the base, but since its averaged, why would it need to ask for that seperately. In my situation, the base is on top of a small tower and it wouldn’t be easy to get a physical height plus the tower is on its own mound, so where do I take a height from?
Which format is better, the newest RINEX?
I’m just abit nervous, something new with limited time and quite large stakes makes the anxiety spike!
What are the other common mistakes people make on PPK drone flights?
