Welcome to a new video by Point One Navigation. In this video, we will demonstrate how to set up a DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise RTK drone to work with the Point One Polaris network. We’ll need to install the RTK module onto this drone simply by opening the connector port, lining up the RTK module, as we’re showing you here, and then finish it off by tightening those two thumb screws.

Next, you’ll need a Polaris account. So let’s head to the website.

To obtain a Point One Polaris account, go to, and select Get Started in the top right. Point One offers a 14-day free trial. Here you’ll find your standard account creation dialog. Let’s sign into your account.

A device is created automatically for you during the trial period. But even if you already have a Point One account, let’s go through the process.

Select Create device in the top right and input your name. Let’s call this “Drone test” — to the right of that Enable device on creation. Make sure that is set to Yes, and then hit Create. You’ll see our new device called “Drone Test” is at the top of the list. And on the right-hand side, you’ll see its credentials. Now on the far left, under Connection, you can see that it is red, and it is not connected to the network. The device is enabled and ready to connect, but we have to copy over the NTRIP Casters, the Mount Point, Username, & Password into the settings on your controller. For the sake of this tutorial, you can see that we already have another device set up below that called “Connected Demo Drone”. You’ll also see the green checkmark, meaning it is connected to the Point One Polaris network. Let’s check it out.

Obviously, the first difference is the map, where you can see your drone’s location and interact with your standard pinch and zoom. But let’s go to the full-screen map.

Point One’s centimeter-level RTK correction service is worldwide. Our coverage network goes even beyond these blue base stations shown here. You can track an entire fleet of drones across the globe. We are going to continue to expand this network, and we love seeing the new ways that people are using it. If this is piquing your interest and you have more questions, we want to hear from you — head to and ask away.

All right now, let’s go set up that custom RTK network on your Mavic’s controller, head back to the Devices screen, and pull up the credentials underneath the new device that we created earlier.

As you can see, we’ve switched over to the controller screen, go to Camera view, verify the pre-flight checklist, and exit this menu.

Open the menu from the top right corner, select RTK settings from the left bar — make sure RTK Positioning is enabled, as well as Maintain Positioning Accuracy Mode.

There’s a drop-down menu beneath that — select Custom Network RTK from the service type menu, input NTRIP information from your Point One Polaris account, hit save make sure you are connected to the satellites. The Point One Polaris network supports all four constellations.

Alright, now that we’ve got RTK enabled, you want to be certain that everything runs smoothly, so be certain to restart your drone before we move on to setting up your test route. Once you’ve done that, let’s head outside.

Now we are ready to set up the Flightpath — enter Camera View. Press the Route icon on the top left corner, press the + sign on the right, and select Mapping. For the scenario, the default name is fine. Double-check all your settings here and select the correct camera. In our case, it’s the “DJI Mavic 3E” — press the back button and hit Save. We are ready to fly. To fly our pre-planned route, enter the Camera view mode and press the Route icon to select the route we just created — “Mapping 4”, scroll down, hit Next. Scroll down again. Click Upload flight mission.

When you’re ready, hit Start and it will take off all on its own. You can watch the whole thing from a live view on your controller, stunning views up here as it navigates along the designated path.

Once it has reached the conclusion, it automatically navigates back to home. The drone is safely guided back to its starting position with a perfect landing every time. If you liked this video, don’t forget to like and subscribe to our channel for more videos like this in the future.
