    Hi Phantom friends,
    So I am trying to see about creating a 2D line survey drawing with my phantom 4, is it possible or only to create 3D models?

    Well an orthographic view (top down) of a 3D model is effectively a plan view. You could import this into a CAD or GIS package (try Global Mapper) and trace 2D features in plan view. Be warned however that the accuracy is only as good as the onboard GPS, so don't expect better than 3-5 meters...

    Please report back how this turns out. I've needed to do this in the past and drew them by hand since it was merely a request to "Get Close".
