To ensure your commercial drone operation delivers consistent, high-quality data, you need to get ground control right. Propeller AeroPoints are the world’s only ground control solution purpose-built for drone operations—making accurate data simple and affordable.
Each AeroPoint is a portable, reusable ground control point (GCP) that repeatedly records positioning data while you fly. Lightweight and durable with a simple one-touch operation, a standard set of 10 AeroPoints can be placed around a survey area in minutes.
Rugged, lightweight and portable, AeroPoints work in any location, with any GPS enabled drone (including RTK), with any coordinate reference system and any processing software including Pix4D, Agisoft and Propeller Platform.
Includes 3 Trial Datasets for Propeller Propeller
Incredible accuracy in less than an hour
AeroPoints only need to be activated for 45 minutes for the inbuilt GPS to record accurate data—well within typical drone operation time.
AeroPoints work collaboratively to correct against each other, so the accuracy of each unit increases when more AeroPoints are activated.
We recommend using all 10 AeroPoints for every survey, no matter how small.
Works with any drone
AeroPoints improve the accuracy of data captured by any GPS-enabled drone, even those with onboard RTK. As good as RTK is, AeroPoints provide a stable ‘on the ground truth’ that helps correct the impact of altitude variance and temporary signal loss.

Can I buy a smaller set of AeroPoints?
No – they’re only available in minimum sets of 10. It’s important to us that AeroPoints deliver reliable, accurate data every time. More points mean redundancy if they get accidentally moved or covered, improved accuracy, and extra data for checkpoint verification.
Do Propeller AeroPoints work with Pix4D software?
Yes, Propeller AeroPoints can be used alongside any drone mapping software including Pix4D.
Do I need a Propeller subscription to use AeroPoints?
For AeroPoints to work, you need to maintain a subscription to Propeller Correction Network. It’s included with your purchase for the first 12 months.
After the first year, if you have any current Propeller Platform license, you get the Network subscription for free.
If you aren’t using the Propeller platform, the Network subscription is just $600 a year.
What level of moisture/dust can they handle?
AeroPoints are water resistant, dustproof and they’ll be fine even in moderate rain.
What area can I cover with a set of AeroPoints?
A set of 10 AeroPoints will get accurate results on areas up to 120ha (300 acres). Even for the smallest surveys such as a single building we still recommend putting all of your AeroPoints – it’s easy to do and gives you the ability to verify accuracy and avoid accidental movement or obstruction ruining your survey.
We recommend 2 sets of 20 AeroPoints for high accuracy on areas up to 350ha (865 acres).
Do AeroPoints come with a warranty?
We offer a standard 1-year international warranty from the date of dispatch. Within that time, we will repair or replace faulty AeroPoints if necessary.
