Hello,We are using a DJI M600 with a Ronin MX gimbal and an Android tablet.When using the DJI app we can select between making the gimbal yaw and pitch using the C2 button on the controller, you then use the dial to move the gimbal. If we then switch to the UgCS app the C2 button will not switch between giving you yaw or pitch control, it will just be set to whatever the last setting was when using the DJI app. Is there a way to swap between having yaw/pitch control while a mission is being…Continue
I get this error when I'm planning very large missions (more than 1200 waypoints approximately) and trying to pair them down to a manageable size.Once I get this error, I'm unable to remove routes from the program since they show up again after about 30 seconds. I also can't edit the waypoints either since changes are not saved…Continue
When AreaScan is used, UgCS places extra waypoints to keep the flight path at a constant altitude above ground level. However, once the route is converted to waypoints, this functionality is lost. There needs to be a way to either convert the waypoints back to a route so the draping can happen again, or have a command to apply drape to segments. This would command UgCS to add waypoints along the segments to maintain height above ground.I've also needed this when I import a CSV of endpoints,…Continue
I need to do scans over a large area (not a camera) and I need the lines from each block to line up together. Is there a way to create an areascan mission with a basepoint? This way, all the lines will start from a common location. The basepoint needs to be able to be somewhere not in the survey area.Continue
Is it possible to select multiple waypoints? So far I have only found a way to select all the waypoints, or only 1. This makes it very awkward to edit a large plan, but I'm hoping there is a feature I'm missing, like a select tool.Continue
Can someone tell me what's going on here? It usually happens when I convert an Area Scan to waypoints, or if I import a waypoint file. I have a 2.5 m resolution DEM loaded. It doesn't always do this, but it might correlate with the number of waypoints there are. This route has 1600. However I'm seeing it when it's as low as 700 too. It should be direct lines from each waypoint to the next but often it just travels horizontally and then vertically down to the waypoint.…Continue
Hello,Using a M210 RTK, is it possible to add the correction of the base position of DJI RTK differential antenna?We use a GNSS NMEA base antenna to verify the DJI base error. We would insert this difference in order to save the right data on the EXIFs.Thanks.Continue
Hello all,I'm currently working to view three X-8s from UgCS. Each one has a Pixhawk autopilot and a 3DR modem. I have already changed the SYSID_THISMAV parameter for each X-8 to be unique and each 3DR radio is paired to a unique Net ID, in this case 20, 21, 23. I've got all three radios plugged into a powered USB hub going to my laptop and I can connect to each individually through Mission Planner. However, when I open UgCS, I only am able to see one vehicle.I messed with the config file…Continue
How to save current drone position, return to home, change the battery then resume the mission to the last save position?Maybe we can hover the drone for a few seconds to get accurate gps location before returning home.I cant figure it out how to do it. Continue
