How can I Set Home using SDK?

Started by Stevod. Last reply by Anna Moshkova on Friday. 1 Reply

I am using following code on the .net SDK, trying to send the Phantom 3 simulator to a home point of lat/long/alt {0.0,0.0,0.0} before flying a mission. Unfortunately, the UGCS emulator has a bug and will not return telemetry on Ubuntu when flying, and hence I have purchased a physical DJI drone to use its simulator instead. The SDK documentation is unclear on what commands/parameter are available, and their structure, and hence I am guessing what I should be using. Will it be possible to…Continue

Joystick Control with DJI M600

I am attempting to use a joystick to control a DJI M600 with UgCS. However when I connect the M600 to UgCS via the UgCS for DJI android app no joystick control mode is available. Is joystick control for the DJI M600 not yet supported? Is this feature only available in commercial versions of UgCS?Thanks,RowanContinue

Altitude too high.

Started by Colin Girvan. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Oct 10. 5 Replies

We had an issue yesterday that I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with.When trying to start a mission by activating Auto Mode we kept getting an "Altitude too high" error. It doesn't say what altitude it's referring to and everything we tried didn't help.About 2 months ago we had the same issue after switching to 2.11, drove home switched back to 2.10 and the next day it was OK. We've been flying 2.10 up till about a week ago when I decided to try 2.11 again.This time we had no problems…Continue

Error Altitude too high

Started by Michael Gray. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Oct 10. 16 Replies

I am trying to fly a mission on a Coal Surface mine using a DJI Inspire 1 Pro. The area I am trying to fly used to be a valley that they have converted into a Impoundment and fill area. The elevation change is roughly about 80 feet from the surface model in UGCS. I have added a new surface model and made sure the elevation Z order was reflecting the new surface model. I did notice that when I turn the drone on while setting on the ground it reads an AGL of -20 feet. I selected my update takeoff…Continue

Joystick Z-Axis Control Not Working (Speedlink Phantom Hawk)

Started by Rowan Border. Last reply by Artūrs Oct 9. 6 Replies

I am attempting to setup joystick control mappings for UgCS with a Speedlink Phantom Hawk. The joystick has a rotatable z-axis for yaw control but it is not detected by UgCS when I attempt to add a mapping. I have tested the joystick with other applications and confirmed that the z-axis control works with them. I am running UgCS 2.11 on macOS 10.12. Has anyone experienced similar issues with this or other joysticks and found a solution?Thanks,RowanContinue

Save flight plan and load into multiple flights?

Started by Eben N. Broadbent. Last reply by Eben N. Broadbent Oct 3. 17 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

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 ?
