Has anyone done mapping with the RTK? I'm looking at doing some drainage ditch mapping with the rtk to make a map to fly a T30

I use RTK for work as a surveyor all the time, but haven't actually integrated it with my drone work yet. If you have access to RTK equipment, it would be easy to set yourself some ground control points in a very short time. If you pick or place good points, you may be able to use them repeatedly for awhile.

Are you referring to the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced?
If so, for your use you should be good. Just understand that the RTK module is not used to place accurate coordinates into the images metadata, it is only used for positioning.

If you want to use it for survey grade mapping also, it performs the worse of all of the drones I own with properly spaced GCPs and Check Points.
