Frequently Asked Questions
Can you use Propeller with non-recommended drones?
Yes! The drones we recommend provide the best user experience and the most robust set of compatible features. Still, if you select a camera and drone with a strong record of high-accuracy results, we probably support it.
We don’t support drones and cameras that capture images unsuitable for surveying, as they can’t deliver the level of accuracy our customers depend on.
Why do you recommend PPK-compatible hardware over RTK solutions?
We know how important accuracy and reliability are to our customers, and Propeller PPK is the most accurate and reliable start-to-finish drone surveying and data processing solution.
An RTK drone needs to maintain a constant connection to a base station during the entire duration of a flight to collect data successfully, which means that even a slight signal loss (like flying behind a building) creates big problems.
PPK does not require this constant contact, making it a much better solution for most worksites and use cases.
However, Propeller does offer support for RTK workflows with high-accuracy geotags. Check with a sales representative or get in touch here to see if your existing hardware is compatible.
What’s the difference between recommended and supported drones?
Recommended drones have specifically been selected for optimization with Propeller PPK, and will provide the best user experience. Supported drones are compatible with the Propeller Platform, but may have limited functionality and will not support the complete PPK solution. Wondering what support is available for your drone? Check out our Supported Drones tool above, or contact us if you have questions.
The drone you use for site surveying matters—but hardware is just one piece of the puzzle.
We’re experts at creating software that assembles your drone-collected data into a comprehensive, actionable survey.
