Yuneec launches RTK variant of H520 hexacopter

By on 5 February, 2019

Californian UAV manufacturer Yuneec has released a new version of its commercial hexacopter platform with an integrated RTK unit from Swiss firm Fixposition.

The company says that the H520 RTK is capable of 1 cm + ppm horizontal / 1.5 cm + ppm vertical positioning, making this model suitable for high accuracy, automated inspection tasks, faster 3D mapping, and forensic applications.

The hexacopter has a physical RTK module onboard, and a ground station supporting GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou GNSS constellations.

The RTK system is also operable via a national reference station network with a mobile hotspot or other Internet connection, and all flight data is recorded, supporting PPK applications.

The H520 RTK will be available in the US in the second quarter of 2019, with official Australian availability yet to be announced.
