i have to do a topographic survey in the italian city

Personally I don’t think the RTK is necessary. I guess it depends on how confident you are that it will maintain a fix and the area and terrain that you are in. There’s a few P4RTK’s in our area and they all have had several flights ruined because of a lost fix at further distances.

I might be mistaken, but I think with Emlid you can still log while running the RTK so you can PPK if needed.

Plenty good accuracy!


i will use it for a ground survey and not a uav survey…

m+ like a rover and rs+ like a base

If you going to survey in a city, I would highly suggest you look into the RS2 for both base and rover.
M+ and RS+ are L1 only, and while they perform excellent and stable in rural areas, nearby buildings aren’t their best friends.

Gotcha, thanks for clarifying. Yes, you want RTK then.

Or you buy two M+ and an UAV and you go for an aerial survey instead :wink:

When will you start your survey?

no i have to do a terrestrial survey…


If you can budget the extra money, I would wait for the RS2. It will perform much more consistently. Complications from multi-path and ionosphere interference will be greatly reduced. At the end of the day you will be on par with receivers that are $6k+ for the set.
