DJI has rethought its drone technology from the ground-up, revolutionizing its systems to achieve a new standard for drone accuracy – resulting in the creation of the Phantom 4 RTK.
The system was designed by looking at the requirements from the drone mapping and surveying market and building exactly what they wished for – a compact drone solution with a high-resolution camera and the ability to capture centimeter-accurate RTK data.

Drone technology has helped the construction industry boost productivity and digitize workflows. The all-new DJI Phantom 4 RTK is the tool that takes construction mapping to a new level.
Watch how German construction group STRABAG leverages this innovative drone solution to streamline construction surveying workflows, increase efficiency and create detailed 3D models.

A new RTK module is integrated directly into the Phantom 4 RTK, providing real-time, centimeter-level positioning data for improved absolute accuracy on image metadata. Sitting just beneath the RTK receiver is a redundant GNSS module, installed to maintain flight stability in signal-poor regions such as dense cities. Combining both modules, the Phantom 4 RTK is able to optimize flight safety while ensuring the most precise data is captured for complex surveying, mapping and inspection workflows.
Capture the best image data with a 1-inch, 20 megapixel CMOS sensor. The mechanical shutter makes mapping missions or regular data capture seamless as the Phantom 4 RTK can move while taking pictures without the risk of rolling shutter blur. Due to the high resolution, the Phantom 4 RTK can achieve a Ground Sample Distance (GSD) of 2.74 cm at 100 meters flight altitude. To ensure each Phantom 4 RTK offers unparalleled accuracy, every single camera lens goes through a rigorous calibration process where radial and tangential lens distortions are measured. The distortion parameters gathered are saved into each image’s metadata, letting post-processing software adjust uniquely for every user.
A new GS RTK app allows pilots to intelligently control their Phantom 4 RTK, with two planning modes – Photogrammetry and Waypoint Flight – alongside a more traditional flight mode. The planning modes let pilots select the drone’s flight path while adjusting overlap rate, altitude, speed, camera parameters and more, offering an automated mapping or inspection workflow.
The GS RTK app has been built with its users in mind and therefore has a range of features built for specific mapping or inspection workflows. The app has implemented direct loading of KML area files for in-office flight planning, a new shutter priority mode to keep exposure consistent across all photos and a strong wind alarm to warn pilots of adverse conditions.
Enjoy stable and reliable HD image and video transmission at distances of up to 7 km, great for mapping larger sites.
The Phantom 4 RTK is compatible with the DJI Mobile SDK, opening up its functions to automation
and customization through a mobile device.
