Wondering if anyone else is experiencing UGCS crashes? Essentially what happens to me is after using UGCS for an hour or so my keyboard no longer functions and after about 15 minutes of that the computer will crash to a dialogue asking how the computer should restart, bu this screen doesn't work so I have to hold the power button down until it shuts down then I restart normally. Any ideas?…Continue
Hi,I am currently using UgCS with a Phantom 4 to do mapping in mountain, working great ! (=didn't crash yet^^)Now I am looking into a way to limit the radio signature of the Phantom during flight. 1) I am thinking of turning off the RC during the flight - Normally the Phantom should follow the mission until the end and come back, if the mission is well planned. I just want to make sure that the Phantom 4 will keep taking pictures if the RC is off ? (I remember something about the camera being…Continue
I have a Wifi-only tablet that connects Ok to UGCS desktop app while in the same wifi net at my home.But in the field, I cannot create a mobile hotspot since the tablet hasn't got that feature. How can I connect it to my laptop?Many thanksContinue
I have a 3D KMZ file that I created using extrusion in ArcScene and exported to KMZ using the Layer to KMZ tool. The features that I want to add for obstacle avoidance show up as 3D features in Google Earth, but when I try to import them into UgCS, no features show up. Has anyone else had any luck converting 3D files from ArcGIS to 3D KMZ? Continue
I'm using a DJI Inspire 1 Pro and both the 15 mm and 25 mm lenses. Since DJI haven't made the ability to control focus available via their SDK, (apparently the beta version out now does!), I've been looking for ways to ensure I'm getting proper focus during photogrammetry missions. First, some background on what I've found with these lenses:The 15 mm lens, even when set to Manual on the lens itself, resets to some not quite at infinity setting each time you power on. So, for longer missions…Continue
I'm testing the new Android app, and the exposure controls are working nicely. In the past, I wasn't able to get the exposure compensation to be anything other than -2. Thanks for the update!If I could add a request, though. When I make changes to the exposure, it would be nice to have those remain in effect, even after quitting and restarting the app. For example, I'm noticing that the ISO always reverts to 400, and the EV reverts to -2. As I said, I can at least change these, but if I'm doing…Continue
Hi,I'm reading over the release notes for versions 2.7 and 2.8 and want to make sure I'm understanding what features have been added.1. Does this allow adaptive banked turns for the Inspire 1? (I don't think this worked in the past.) If so, that should speed up how quickly a mission can be flown. I'm burning a lot of time stopping at each waypoint turn.2. In order to trigger the Inspire 1 X5 faster than once every five seconds, should I be using Area Scan instead of Photogrammetry?3. No focus…Continue
These are the results of a flight I attempted using UgCS in an attempt to get more familiar with the software. The flight parameters were set to 85 front and side overlap with an altitude of 103 ft. The camera trigger function was set to Auto by distance and action on forward passes only. As you can see the consistency leaves much to be desired.…Continue
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
