  • Hello I am trying to contact but we don´t get any answer from your contact form

    Can you give me a contact information so we can ask some questions about your products before order?

  • i cant find anyone using this.   has anyone seeing posts with the neo.m8t and the 3dr solo ?    seems like a great RTK or PPK solution.  scoured high and low. nothing but a few promos from the company w nothing involving the 3dr solo.  currently w mavic pro.  thinking phantom 4 pro and GCP investment.  but cant remove this as an option yet !!

  • Drotek :can make some video in YouTube ,how to install and upgrade, I think so many solo user want know that and buy you prouduct! I planning to buy it! thx thank you design product to solo!
  • M8P performance is good, in 4-5 min you can achieve centimeter level locks, which is good compared to other products on the market. There are built-in integrity functions so the output is rock solid. Additionnally u-blox constantly improves firmware to improve lock/precision/features. Documentation coming! 

  • Interesting...

    Can the setup be used instead for Post- Processing? 

  • I would be good to see some documentation on which firmware to download and flash SOLO firmware with the new firmware that support the new Drotek RTK. I like see Wiki or documentation how to install a new firmware from Drokek (if possible) for SOLO with Dritek RTK. It seems that Mission Planner has support for RTK GPS lately.

  • Sounds interesting!

    So how u-blox' rtk in M8P shows itself? Did you test it?

  • @Jonathan @Artem

    The easiest way to send the corrections without any additional hardware modification is to use built-in Wifi and Mission Planner (with base station connected to it)) with the "Inject GPS" function. It will send corrections over the existing MAVlink.

  • Also, is there a way to send correction via the same mavlink? it would be nice to run rtk client on FC or a companion to utilize the existing link and have rtk base connected to the controller, while at the same time using a regular GPS with good antenna on the aircraft.
