Will Pix4Dcapture support P4RTK with SDK contoller?

Is there any plan to start supporting Phantom 4 RTK SDK in near future? I think that would be an awesome update :slight_smile:

Hi Magda,

Welcome in our new Pix4D community!

To answer your question, it is not in our pipeline to support P4RTK with SDK controller for the moment.

Hi Gael,
This is very unfortunate as the Pix4DCapture app is the only app I am aware of that can capture free flight at specific distance intervals.
There is no current way to map free flight with the Phantom 4 RTK (timed interval was removed from the DJI app).
Previous post have suggested that the DJI mission planning software that comes with the P4 RTK covers all the bases, but it doesn’t.
My workflow for mapping cliff features and slopes is reliant on the manual free flight mission in Pix4D capture. I would like to upgrade to the RTK version of the P4 for greater accuracy but its not worth it unless Pix4D (or some one else) supports the RTK version with a decent free flight mission mode.
Is it possible Pix4D can/will reconsider this decision in the future?
Thanks
Ian

Hi Ian,

Thank you for your suggestion. The P4RTK is not supported by pix4Dcapture at the moment and it is currently not in our pipeline to support it. However, your interest has been shared with the developer’s team and any update will be published at our Pix4Dcapture supported drone and camera page https://bit.ly/2LwK34l.

I bought the SDK remote controller as well with the intention of using Pix4Dcapture with my P4RTK (https://enterprise.dji.com/news/detail/dji-standard-remote-controller-for-phantom-4-rtk)
DJI built this remote for this purpose… I wish you can put this request into your pipeline in the near future. I don’t understand why a drone built to do mapping at is best is not supported by your mapping APP.

Thanks for reconsider,

Regards,

Joe
