The T16 is equipped with the RTK+GNSS Dual Redundancy System. It is not separated by version.

9.Does the T16 support the D-RTK 2?
Yes.

10.What are the improvements of the T16’s FPV camera compared to the MG-1P? Can FPV videos be saved?
The T16 provides clearer and smoother footage. FPV videos cannot be saved.

11.Is there any required assembly for the T16?
No. The T16 does not need to be assembled. After activation, it is ready for use.

AI OPERATION PLANNING

1.How does 3D operation planning function on the T16?
After capturing orthographic images with the Phantom 4 RTK, use the DJI Terra, which supports Orchard Mode, to complete the 3D mapping of the field. Once the operation field is selected, the AI system will automatically identify object attributes such as crops and obstacles and automatically generate 3D operational routes. After these routes are downloaded, the T16 will then automatically start working.

2.What are the similarities and differences between the image collection for 3D operation planning on the T16 and that of the previous PC GS Pro?
Both capture orthographical images shot through the Phantom 4 series, but they create field-maps differently.

3.What can the DJI Terra identify while in Orchard Mode via AI recognition technology?
The DJI Terra can identify orchards, buildings, water surfaces, powerline poles, and the ground.

4.Can the T16 spray above trees that have an uneven layout and various heights?
Yes. The DJI Terra can recognize the location and height of fruit trees thanks to 3D mapping and AI recognition. The T16 only targets fruit trees and adjusts its flight altitude according to tree height to keep a constant distance above the trees.

BATTERY AND CHARGER
