          Propeller has changed the way our site department does business.

          We have tried multiple platforms and drones. The Propeller PPK workflow changed the game for us.

          We love the Propeller PPK workflow

          It’s very reliable, and we know that we’re going to get a good result. It’s more reliable because sometimes RTK drops out.

          Most of the time, it’s way more accurate than a tenth of a foot.

          I have a sidewalk on the exterior of one site that obviously doesn’t move. I just run a quick calc of an area on that sidewalk and most of the time it’s the same to two to three hundredths of a foot every time.
