I've been reading lots of forums and posts out there about RTK, affordable equipment like Reach RTK and Piksi, but Piksi seems it requires lots of configuration and according to some posts lots of things could go wrong, and as for the Reach RTK, and I haven't found much, in fact I haven't found any videos of people using them, they both claim to integrate with Pixhawk, but has anyone test them?, similar? or cheaper?, and specially on Rovers?
I'm sorry if this question was already answered but I'm researching before buying anything.
as for the link i suggest to use this openLRS
I use telemetry with drotek smartnav. If there is not good link (quality data over radio), I don't have fix, that's why I purpose to upgrade your antenna.
Vehicule positionning is not in my interest at this time, I use it for GCP so telemetry is not needed in my case.
Thank you for your feedback also
I use it for vehicle positioning. In fact, I obtain the position of the drone in real-time for a software application that makes calculations with that positioning. It is not a matter of range when using telemetry radios, because those dropouts are experienced on the ground also before take-off, even when testing inside the office.
Thank you for your feedback.

You use it for photogrammetry or vehicule positionning ?
If it's for photogrammetry, try using ppk configuration and camera feedback : it does not require telemetry. For photogrammetry, the most important is position of camera not vehicule.
If you use it for vehicule positionning, you should upgrade your antenna : dipole antenna on vehicule and big long range antenna on the ground (like tv antenna but more specific to your telemetry specification : 433 or 915 or other

I bought an EMLID Reach Kit. Here is my experience so far.
In conclusion, the technology looks great. When it works, its impressive (centimetre level accuracy). But there are many difficulties along the way. I still have not been able to solve all of them at the same time to have a reliable and stable solution every time. I am using it professionally, and still cannot rely on it. I am working on it though, I have hope!
I would love to hear the experience from other users of Reach or Piksi!
I am particularly interested in this as well.
Or the SMARTNAV L1 RTK GNSS?
Thanks for your input.
Thanks Chris, any chance you tried the NEO-M8P?, with the C94-M8P boards?

I've got both and haven't really got either working with Pixhawk yet reliably. I'm sure the problem is on my end, but they're definitely not plug-and-play.
Perhaps someone else has had more success than me?
