Hi all. I am using a DJI Phantom 4 Pro (with the latest firmware update) and am having trouble connecting the P4P to several android devices that have UGCS for DJI installed on them. I have tried unsuccessfully connecting to a Lenovo TB-8504F  tablet (Android Version 7.1.1) and a Samsung Galaxy S9 (Android Version 9) following the steps outlined here: …Continue

Exporting section of route from Telemetry

Started by Mike Sousa. Last reply by Janis Jonins Apr 24. 3 Replies

HiI've collected telemetry for a fairly long flight and because of this, it has too many waypoints and will not process (I'm suspecting that's the reason why). Is it possible to save a part of the telemetry as a KML file in the Telemetry player, or maybe delete segments of the create route?Thanks...Continue

Orientation of quad after Hold

Started by Mike Sousa Apr 19. 0 Replies

HiDuring some flights (facade routes), with both a Mavic 2 Zoom and a Matrice 210 RTK, pressing 'Hold' followed by doing some manual flying was done. When Continue was pressed, the quad went back to the original route but did not resume the proper orientation (did not look towards the facade). Any idea what the issue is?Thanks...Continue

I’m getting errors like area too large. Is there a limit to how many images you should process
Comment by Ricardo Procopio Nieto on August 14, 2018 at 4:07pm


I am trying to read telemetry with version 2.13. But in the latitude and longitude these erroneous values ​​appear:

{"id": "TT_LATITUDE", "value": 0.33958137}, {"id": "TT_LONGITUDE", "value": - 1.7310266}

You have to do some calculation to obtain to get the positions like this: "19.456566, -99.180498.61.17" WGS-84.

Thanks in advance

Hi guys:

I'm new to UgCS and drones. I've been testing version 2.12 with Phantom 4 DJI with the Java SDK from here:

Following the examples, I have managed to read telemetry, send commands and upload routes, but I have two limitations:

1.- When the telemetry is connected with version 3.0, it does not work correctly.

2.- I don't know how to manipulate camera rotation and drone movements. I tried sending the command "direct_payload_control", but it gives me the error: "command not registered".

Reading this documentation:

I understand that you have to register the command, but I still do not know how. Please someone help me.

I am working on UgCS for muti-Drone(arducopter).

I have some question now, I have tested the 2 quadcopters with ardupilot and here+ RTK GNSS, ESP-07 WIFI telemetry . but UgCS Pro version have lost the telemetry up/down links  on about 30~40 meter altitude. 

I have tested in LOS environment with TP-Link wifi router .

I want to control the drones over 150m at least.

please let me know how to solver this problem . which telemetry module I use for multi-drones.



Comment by DEEPESH PARATE on February 9, 2018 at 10:11am

I'm working on writing a parser code to convert xml exported from ugcs into a format suitable for paparazzi to use. The current flight plan xml that I have from ugcs has a completely different format from the one of paparazzi so I'm thinking of going for px4 flight plan. Can someone please tell me if it's going to be helpful or not?

I have the same problem. How did you solve your problem ?

I installed the Android application I use a multirotor with a dji A3 I have a problem I have no indication of battery level
Comment by juan pablo gayoso on January 19, 2017 at 11:11am

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.
