UgCS for DJI app

Started by Adam Kelly. Last reply by Adam Kelly on Monday. 7 Replies

I went and got an android tablet specifically to run the UgCS for DJI app since I am a mac user and run an ipad for everything else with my drones (and realised too late I needed a tablet app to use UgCS, my own fault). Now I try to download the app from the google play store but get "incompatible with your device: no carrier" error. Why would I need a carrier to run the app since it connects to the macbook wifi, not through a celllphone network? I really want to like and use UgCS but honestly…Continue

UGCS with Pixhawk questions

Started by Alex. Last reply by Artūrs Jan 6. 1 Reply

Hi, I am working on testing UGCS with a Pixhawk platform hexacopter but I have a few questions. I'm hoping the UGCS engineers can help.1. Is Pixhawk and PX4 the same thing? I see standard vehicle platforms for Ardupilot and PX4, which should I be using for Pixhawk?2. Why does ardupilot/PX4 have no "Action on loss of datalink" pull down under "route parameters"? What will it do if datalink is lost? I don't see a setting for this in Mission Planner either so this is probably the wrong place to…Continue

DJI M600P Configuration Variables and UgCS

Started by Jay Baldwin. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Jan 3. 3 Replies

My aircraft are DJI P3P ; Inspire 1 P ; S600P. I'm accruing funds to purchase the DRTK package for the M600P.Simple missions are presently flown w/ P3P with some using the I1. My primary clients are surveyors and quarries. The reason for purchasing the M600P w/ DRTK is to collect, process, and deliver 1cm accuracy to clients. I want to fully understand how UgCS will integrate with the above and have predictable results from the workflow and deliverables.Added variable: I am also plannng on…Continue

Error Altitude too high

Started by Michael Gray. Last reply by Dmitrijs Marcenkovs Jan 2. 11 Replies

I am trying to fly a mission on a Coal Surface mine using a DJI Inspire 1 Pro. The area I am trying to fly used to be a valley that they have converted into a Impoundment and fill area. The elevation change is roughly about 80 feet from the surface model in UGCS. I have added a new surface model and made sure the elevation Z order was reflecting the new surface model. I did notice that when I turn the drone on while setting on the ground it reads an AGL of -20 feet. I selected my update takeoff…Continue

Comment by juan pablo gayoso yesterday

is possible read mission file from UgCS to MissionPlanner, in both directions.

Comment by Marshall Cant on December 26, 2016 at 8:54am

I have the same problem.  My "Overshoot" field is also set to 0.

If you reduce overlap you also reduce the quality of the results.Pix 4D recommends 70% overlap (as does most other photogrammetry software).

Please explain how to correct this and have the UAV follow the outline of the area.



Comment by Alex on December 26, 2016 at 3:57am

Adam Kelly, you got to make lower Forward overlap to get not so big overshoots.

Comment by Adam Kelly on December 26, 2016 at 2:51am

Hi - I'm new to ugcs. I'm planning a mission and I keep getting big overshoots using the photogrammetry tool. I've attached a screen shot. Anyone know why this is happening? I have tried changing pretty much all the variables one at a time, nothing changes these overshoots. It suck up a lot of flight time to travel this extra distance.

Got reply back from UGCS on the use of tablet . Trying to find out whether pixhawk copter or fix wing is supported and working .
