I have bought a Drotek Serius RTK module, which utilizes M8P ublox module for precision positioning. My goal is to use it to be able to autonomously fly my drone with greater precision, but so far I have been getting mixed results.
I have waited for a while to get a 0.5 m survey-in accuracy, but then still it can be seen that the drone drifts position in the X Y plane, though it is completely stationary on the ground (this drift is clearly larger than 0.5m, more in the range of +5 m). This drift would not seem necessary to me, as the drone and base station know eachothers whereabouts up to a few cm accurate, and the base station location is fixed in a radius of 0.5m. Is that correct?
My question: is the RTK only used for after processing, or can it also be used in mission mode? I thought this was the case, but because of my results I get a feeling it isn’t. Is there any hack that does enable it to be used in mission mode?
