MINI2 Receiver is an RTK GPS receiver that delivers high-rate and reliable RTK initialization for centimeter level positioning. It is intended for applications that requre high-precision positioning (e.g. navigation and mapping, etc.).
The receiver is connected to PX4 via a serial port (UART) and may be configured over Ethernet using a standard web browser.
PX4 drivers for Ethernet, CAN and USB are under development.
The following firmware options need to be selected when buying the device:
- 5Hz, 10Hz, 20Hz

The MINI2 Receiver is connected to a UART on the flight controller (GPS port) for data. To power the module you will need a separate 12V power supply. The pins on the 12-pin connector are numbered as shown below.
For heading estimation the two antennas need to be on the same level and at least 30 cm apart from each other. The direction that they are facing does not matter as it can be configured with the GPS_YAW_OFFSET parameter.
Once configured the receiver is used in the same way as any other RTK GPS (i.e. with respect to the Survey-in process).
The MINI2 incorporates the following components:
FB672: Compact, dual antenna, dual frequency GNSS OEM board (delivers centimeter accurate position and precise heading).
FB6A0: Compact, quadruple frequency GNSS OEM board (delivers centimeter-accurate positioning)
