What is the smallest survey drone?

With Civil Tracker you can map and study with the Mavic Mini, Mini 2 and Mini SE. We believe that a whole new generation of drone mappers is about to start flying. The Horizon Forbidden West Survey drones are small autonomous drones that survey the biosphere as part of a program called PsiClops. The DJI Phantom 4 RTK is still the best general topography drone on the market right now.

The camera is of high quality, the RTK capability allows for very high accuracy and is very reliable and easy to use. Since DJI launched the Phantom 4 RTK, advances in RTK and PPK processing have further improved the overall value of this system by allowing larger projects with greater precision and less ground control than ever before. The main advantage of the Phantom 4 RTK, compared to the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, is that you'll need to shoot far fewer control points on the ground to achieve a vertical accuracy of 0.1'. Fewer ground control points translate into significant time savings in the field.

As before, where the Phantom 4 RTK outperforms the competition is in its reliability and ease of use. While it is considerably more expensive than drones that are not compatible with RTK, its cost is a fraction of what you could spend on other RTK topography drones. The fantastic overall balance of precision, reliability and value wins our first choice as the best drone for surveying. Every time you pick up a module, return to this console and choose the option to connect the Survey Drone module.

The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is the best non-RTK drone for creating topographic and planimetric studies.
