Last Friday, DJI received FCC approval for what seems to be a Phantom 4 controller. Today, the Chinese drone manufacturer receives another FCC approval for the Phantom 4 RTK (FCC ID SS3-WM334R1801). RTK stands for Real-Time Kinematic and enables the drone to map out an area, building or stockpile with a very high level of accuracy (up to 5cm or 2 inches). DJI requested a 45-day secrecy cycle, meaning that this commercial drone may come to the US market soon as part of their big push into the commercial drone market.
