This photo tutorial is a step-by-step instruction guide to getting your Matrice 210 RTK up to full functioning order. DJI shipped its first RTK units without the necessary ground station units, but now that they are shipping many of our clients have asked for a setup guide to install and use the ground station and datalink.
