Can the A3 Pro (with 3ximu+3xgnss) used with D-RTK GNSS system?
This would mean that you have 5 gps antennas (3 for pro and 2 for D-RTK) installed simultaneously.
Or do you need to remove the Pro antennas and imu's when installing the D-RTK?

Hello.

For what purpos do u use that Pro System? Surveying?

as i am working as a surveyer and we are using Drohnes (DJI Phantom3 Prof and 4) atm we are also planning to use a pro System with D-RTK. As far as I know (i do NOT HAVE a pro sysstem atm i just informed myself) it should be possible what you want to do.

I just found this link on a german Forum which describes exactly what u Need, maybe u can googletranslate it. Hopefully i could help you

Unfortunately you cannot use the A3 Pro and the D-RTK GNSS together. You would need to use the normal A3 set up with the D-RTK.

Thanks Jamie, does d-rtk come as standard on m-600, I don't think it does. If it doesn't how can it be ordered?

The D-RTK is does not come standard with the M600, and would be sold as an upgrade component. As of right now, it has not been made available yet but it should be coming out soon. They have been releasing most of the M600 accessories and upgrades recently.

The D-RTK with the standard A3 would not have triple IMU redundancy. It is uncertain as to whether the triple IMU redundancy of the A3 Pro will be made available soon, but the reduction in magnetic interference provided by the D-RTK would definitely help with stability. If you want more information on the D-RTK system, you can refer to its product page below:

http://www.dji.com/product/d-rtk/info#downloads
You will at least get triple GPS redundancy with this set up.

Is there a plan to release the Datalink Pro seperate to the RTK system?  Is it possible to run the Datalink without the RTK?

At this time, the DatalinkPro and the D-RTK can only be used together. It is uncertain as to whether it will be made separate in the future.

So, the official position of DJI is that the only way to fully control the A3 is with the LB2?

The A3 currently doesn't even have home lock or course lock.  It's quite effectively crippled.  My understanding at the time of purchasing the A3 was that it would be controllable with the Datalink Pro, but now this is only an option with a $8000 upgrade which I don't need?

Is the DJI policy that the A3 should only be fully controllable with the LB2 or with RTK?

At the bottom of page 36 of the A3 manual in asterisks, it does say that Course Lock and Home Lock are available with Lightbridge 2. You just do not get POI or the simple Waypoints function without Lightbridge 2. Regarding the Datalink Pro, it uses UART ports that are not present with the stand alone A3. The D-RTK ensures that the data captured by the Datalink Pro is as accurate as possible.

I know that the manual states that course lock and home lock are available but I have them set up and they aren't working yet.

I'd be happy to be proved wrong by someone who does have it working with the current firmware.

Just so I'm visually on the same page, are you able to map the channels and see them work in the Assistant 2 software, but it won't work on the field or does it not seem to respond in the program either?

There is no channel mapping with the A3, it's set up to a 3pos switch which is courselock/homelock-Atti-GPS mode.
I can enter the mode while in the assisstant, the LED shows acknowledgement of the change but the multicopter ignores it and continues to function in GPS mode.
