Q: How do I get replacement parts for lost or damaged parts of the HPP system?
A: Please contact us at [email protected] to get the assistance you need.
Q: Can I replace parts of the Explore1 drone myself?
A: No, please do not recommend replacing parts of the Explore1 drone without assistance from Skycatch, except for batteries, propellers, and landing gear feet. If it seems like the Explore1 drone may not be working correctly, you can check out our HPP System Troubleshooting guide, or contact us at [email protected] so we can help diagnose the issue.
Q: Can I use base stations other than the Edge1 with the Explore1 Drone?
A: Yes. You can use Topcon, Trimble R10, and Leica as base stations for the Explore1 Drone. You will be able to use them with cloud processing but not Edge1 processing. However, we highly recommend using the whole HPP system together for the best and most precise results. Additional support material on using the Topcon, Trimble, and Leica base stations will soon be added, but here is a start: “Using a Local RTK Base Station with EVO3x or Explore1”.
