Eben N. Broadbent replied to zhexiong shang's discussion Any way to add more waypoints for DJI? in the group UgCS
"One workaround would be to have UGCS fees the drone the mission waypoint by waypoint, as like click to go in auto mode sort of."

"A3 has a 99 limit, the A2 has a 50 limit. Hopefully DJI will fix this, there is no hardware or software reason to have the limit so low."

RTL AGL

Feature request. Have UGCS auto calculate a safe RTL AGL altitude. This would consider situations where RTL might be triggered via loss of telemetry or low battery on the back of a hill, as the RTL is relative to the home location, it would need to be set high enough to go over the hill higher than the minimum safe AGL. Basically, UGCS would use the mission to test straight RTL returns and make sure it would make it back. It could either just suggest a safe AGL, or automatically set that in…See More

Eben N. Broadbent replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion Warning: NO low battery RTL in UGCS auto mode for DJI Matrice (and perhaps all DJI?) in the group UgCS
"I'm no DJI SDK expert, but seems it should be feasible to simply alter the behavior on low battery to immediate RTL and landing, versus the 10 second wait for override (which is what is causing the issue, as the autopilot interprets UGCS…"

"Hello, Yes, you are right. Autopilot should handle failsafe actions. If we found a way how to control them at firmware level we will surely implement such feature at our software. Kind regards, Sergey Kucenko. UgCS team"

"Hi Sergey The software initiated RTL you describe, that would still fail in any situation without good telemetry to the ground station right? A solution that makes missions out of telemetry range possible would be most ideal. Thanks! Eben"

"Hello, Yes, currently requested feature (really communication with autopilot, as RTL is at it responsibility) is not implemented in our software. We will surely implement it in our future releases. In case of a long mission, you able to visually…"

Warning: NO low battery RTL in UGCS auto mode for DJI Matrice (and perhaps all DJI?)

If you are in auto mode, your drone will continue the mission until it hits the default 10% at which point it will auto-land wherever it is located (in my case, would be a tree canopy). A huge risk if you conduct missions outside of telemetry range, or just sometimes don't pay close attention to your battery level.Although there is no work around, the only way to minimize risk is to conduct very conservative short missions, and if possible try to remain in UGCS telemetry range (which extends…See More

Artūrs replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion UGCS telemetry logs save location? in the group UgCS
"Hi Eben, You should be able to back up all your telemetry data by copying this directory: Note: this type of backup will work only within the exact same UgCS versions. And I think that since UgCS 2.10 telemetry is saved within separate files…"

UGCS telemetry logs save location?

So I can export or make a backup copy in a different location. Thanks!See More
