Hello Can anyone suggest to me a similar flight app like the app that phantom 4 pro RTK has?
As I noticed fotos at 90m height from phantom 4 pro compared with the RTK version are not so good .
Seems the RTK version to give better results. Any thought in this?

One technician said me that in RTK version has better results.
I have used pix4d capture, litchi, DJI go and others but the have not so many option like the app from RTK like to correct distortion, autofocus manual setting and others.
Its like that the app form RTk has all enabled.
Any help or thoughts will be high appreciated...

The P4RTK controller is using an embedded version of of Ground Station software.  You can purchase Ground Station Pro to use on the P4Pro controller. 

Also I suggest trying Map Pilot app if you're using iOS, as it doesn't work on Android. Map pilot will notify the user when it slows down the drone to reduce image blur due to poor lighting and windy conditions.

Did anyone else think of this when they saw phantom?

I use drone deploy. I have a P4P pro and get great results when using multiple ground control points surveyed with GPS. I believe it has the same 1" sensor as RTK version (please correct me if I'm wrong). I fly my jobs much lower to improve quality, usually at around 120'.

I think the camera sensor is the same on both P4 PRO and P4 RTK. For flight plan and post-processing i have used Pix4D in the past and i am quite happy with it. Height of 90m is a bit too much. For me 70m was the max but i prefer 50m if the situation allow that. Evenly set Ground control points are a must.

  My 2 cents 🙂

Is the mission planning portion of drone deploy still free?

@firestix The mission planning/flight app for DroneDeploy is still free, and Pix4D also provides an excellent free app (Pix4D Capture).
