DJI Phantom 4 RTK FAQs

Aircraft #

There is a cylindrical white cap on the top of the Phantom 4 RTK containing the RTK module.

No, The Phantom 4 RTK has FOC sinusoidal driver ESCs, offering improved noise control.

GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo.

Gimbal and Camera #

Yes, the ND filter is compatible with the Phantom 4 RTK.

The Phantom 4 RTK uses the same camera as the Phantom 4 Pro and is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4096×2160 at 60fps or 30fps, at a maximum bitrate of 100Mbps using the H.264 codec and also supports H.265. The aperture can be adjusted from F2.8 to F11. Auto and M, A (aperture priority) and S (shutter priority) can be selected. For more details, refer to the specifications.

Each camera has been individually corrected before delivery, and the corresponding Opencv parameter is recorded. The camera can output original images without distortion correction, and output the OPEN-CV distortion correction parameter of the camera in the photo’s XMP information for post-processing.

Remote Controller #

The 5.5-inch 1080p screen integrated with the Phantom 4 RTK’s remote controller has 1000 cd/m2 of brightness, which is more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices. It makes bright, vivid colors easily visible in direct sunlight. With this screen, a mobile device is not required, simplifying pre-flight preparations, and further reducing video lag. Integration of a Micro-SD card slot and 4G USB Dongle port allow images to be edited instantly. Lastly, the battery supports hot swapping and has an embedded loudspeaker.

No, the controller is not compatible with the Phantom 4 RTK.

Software #

Yes, the Phantom 4 RTK will resume its mission at the last breakpoint.

There are three modes for network RTK:
1. The default network RTK uses the WGS84 coordinate system (for Mainland China only).
2. In Base Station mode, the users can set the coordinate system by themselves. Without any settings, the base station will be used as an independent small coordinate system.
3. For Custom Network RTK mode, the coordinate system needs to be judged based on the port configured by the user with an account provided by CORS or a network RTK supplier. The commonly used coordinate systems are WGS84, CGCS2000, and CORS coordinates.

The orthophotos on the SD card can be post-processed by PC GS PRO, PhotoScan, and Pix4d for two-dimensional mapping.

It provides aircraft-side satellite observation data in RINEX format and photo exposure timestamps.

This occurs when the ground is uneven. Auto or manual landing can be selected with the remote controller and PC GS Pro.

Yes, latitude and longitude information can be checked in the photo’s metadata.

The Electronic Total Station uses laser ranging with millimeter accuracy. However, the measurement time is longer than that of the Phantom 4 RTK.

Battery #

It is the same as that of the Phantom 4 Pro’s battery.
5870mAh, 15.2V and 89.8Wh

About 30 minutes in optimal conditions.

It should be stored in a waterproof and moisture-proof place. For long-term storage, ensure that the battery level bar is more than two bars. If it needs to be stored for more than three months, it should be charged and discharged once to maintain the battery activity.

If the battery is stored for a long time with more than a 65% charge, the battery storage self-discharge mode will be triggered, and the battery will automatically discharge to below 65% of the total power. It is normal to feel moderate heat being emitted from the battery.

When using the battery in a low-temperature environment (-10 °C and below), the battery capacity will drop sharply. It is recommended to warm up the battery to 20 °C and then fly the drone.
