RTK Surveying & UAV RTK Precision Guidance

This simple video demonstration shows how the Ultra Affordable UPM RTK Kits can be used for RTK Surveying and UAV RTK Precision Guidance. First Alpha RTK receiver is used to survey 4 location points. The surveyed locations are then input to Mission Planner as waypoints for a test flight. A Pixhawk-based quadcopter using Alpha RTK receiver for GPS is flown over the planned path, hovering over the waypoints. The quadcopter then returns to the take off location. The quadcopter is flown by the Mission Planner program without human intervention.
