UGCS 2.11 Problems / Can I do tablet rollback?

Started by kurt. Last reply by Victor on Monday. 13 Replies

We bought a new tablet and are now forced to update to UGCS 2.11. After using it for 2 jobs it has some terrible bugs that need worked out. We are getting a very bad latency issue and the drone is not even remotely close on the screen to were it is in real life and then will skip forward a bunch and is super glitchy. We can roll back the computer software to 2.10 which works perfect but does anyone know how we can do the same with the tablet? The app store only shows 2.11. From what we can tell…Continue

Why no Yaw in Telemetry?

Started by David Stevenson. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Jun 14. 1 Reply

Hi guys,As Pitch, Roll and Yaw are three basic parameters that every pilots get taught about at flight school, I'm surprised it doesn't appear in any of the telemetry readings from the EMU-COPTER. Is there something different about drones that means it is less relevant than for fixed wing aircraft?I have found the heading and course telemetry, which I assume are the actual compass bearing of the aircraft, and the course that has been laid in, respectively (as the two may be different e.g. due…Continue

Save flight plan and load into multiple flights?

Started by Eben N. Broadbent. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Jun 10. 15 Replies

For post-processing LiDAR flights, it is required that I start and end each flight with 3 figure eight flight patterns. Is it possible for me to create a custom shape to enable doing this easily each time I plan a flight, such as the circle that is available? Also, I'm not clear how to copy / paste waypoints within a flight plan, which could help to at least copy a figure eight (if I'm trying to fly as close to the same one as possible each time). Thanks!Continue

UGCS with fixed-wing

Started by Eben N. Broadbent. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Jun 9. 3 Replies

Anybody have any experience using UGCS with a fixed-wing? In particular, as relates to take-off and landing? And, what about hand launched vs. runway planes? And belly vs. wheel landings? I would love to see a mission of this. And any idea when a functional PX4 fixed-wing UGCS will be available?Continue

Ugcs with inspire 1 takeoff and landing problems

Started by zhexiong shang. Last reply by Sergejs Bovtramovics Jun 8. 3 Replies

I just got my first flight test using ugcs with inspire 1 yesterday. I follow the previous post that first uses the DJI GO to takeoff the craft and then switch to ugcs and do the planning works. It works fine with all the waypoint and POI tests.But I found a problem when I try to land the craft because the landing gear cannot be switched back to the correction position. It seems that ugcs DJI app cannot control the attitude of landing gear of aircraft. Then I switch back to the DJI GO APP it…Continue

In case of lost drone, best move ?

Started by hugo delaroux. Last reply by Eben N. Broadbent Jun 8. 8 Replies

Hi everybody, I am just preparing for the day I am gonna crash my drone^^.I see 2 possibilities to find a lost drone.1- using the latest received GPS coordinate before the crash/lost of connection. But in UgCS I am not really sure where this data is saved ? On the smartphone or directly send to the computer ?2- Using some antenna + radio receiver to detect the drone if it is still emitting (I am using a phantom 4, so I think it should be possible to detect it by scanning the 2,4 GHz band with a…Continue

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 .

will work on the mobile tablet . All i could find was support for DJI . According to the email Android 5 and 6 is working ?
