Hi guys! I have been using UGCS for a a while and recently I tried yo record a log of my flight however was unable to connect to my vehicle in the player menu.

Are there any specific settings required ?

I'm using a gopro and a Phantom 2. The idea would be to get the log from  UGCS and then geotag the gopro pics using the timestamp. If anyone has a suggested workflow that would be cool. I'm chasing some apps that might do the geotagging for me and will post any discoveries.

Hi Nicholas.

I look forward to hearing your findings.

Dennis in this attached Youtube video explains some of the workflows that could be used


Dear Nicholas,

i'll try to help you. There are few things to know. U|g|CS always records telemetry while your vehicle stays connected. To get access to recorded telemetry you need to:

1. go to "Player" tab;

2. use timeline to find a correct period of the flight. Grey bar indicates that data exists.

3. to export telemetry into xml log, please select vehicle and use "Export telemetry" command in the upper menu. 

Please find picture attached. I hope it helps.

Please feel free to contact us at support@ugcs.com

Thank You very much Alvin, I'll check it out!

HI Alexei thanks for the reply.

The problem I'm having is connecting to the player, even with the EmuCopter, everything is blank.


Hi Nicholas,

First, when You open up Telmetry Player, make sure to add the vehicle You have telmetry recorder from.

The player is constructed in a way, that it displays a fraction of time.

If You see no telmerty (that would be gray marking on the timeline), then try to zoom out to a wider view or select the corresponding date which is marked gray, if contains telmetry:

You can zoom in using mouse scroll.

And here You can see the part, which has telmetry saved from vehicle:

Additionally, You mentioned, that there is no info from Emucopter, that is true, we have disabled telmerty recording from Emucopter to not accumulate unnecessary data, because sometimes these files can get huge.

Let me know if I can help You in any kind of way,


Hi Arturs thank you for the reply.

So when I add my Phantom in the player window it should connect showing GPs, battery etc or only on playback of a mission ? I'm just a bit confused about the workflow. So I plan my mission, fly it, then in the player add my vehicle and search for the telemetry ? It's stored automatically and will only show as 'connected' when there is stored telemetry on the timeline ?

Sorry for all the questions !

Thanks again for all your help.


I understand now, when I scroll over the recorder area, the telemetry appears. I have managed to export the telemetry and will see how I can interpret it to try and geotag the photos.

Thanks so much for the support guys, I will post any news related to the geotagging.


Hi Nicholas,

in new release 2.3 you can export your mission telemetry to the droneshare.com and next download TLOG file from droneshare.

With TLOG file you can use any existing tools to geotag images.


Great!! Thanks Alexey, will give it a try!


hi my friends

i have a problem with 3dr

i have a 3dr 433mhz and radio futaba T6EX and APM 2.6

my 3dr when is fix to APM , my radio control is disconnected and my radio control when is fix to APM my 3dr is disconnected !!

pleas help me what do i do for that any two fix to APM in one time ?

Hello Mohsen,

As Futaba transmitters use 2.4GHz frequency but 3DR Radio uses 433MHz frequency, there should be no radio overlapping issues.

Possibly You need to check if You have connected and set up everything correctly.

I suggest You check out some set-up guides for Ardupilot or similar to make sure that all is correct, because in our experience we have never seen an issue like this.

If You have any more questions feel free to ask here or You may contact us by writing support@ugcs.com

Best regards,


Hi Guys, I have been experimenting with all sorts of apps and and didn't have much luck geotagging the images with Mission Planner.

What I did was upload the logfile from UGCS to droneshare.com, and then downloaded it in tlog format. I then converted it to a csv file using Mission PLanner, opened it in excel and tweaked the
columns. I managed to introduce them into the mosaic app, but separately as a log file, not geotagging each individual image.

Still chasing a better solution, I ordered a Flytrex core and will see how that works out and will post as soon as I have any news.

Meanwhile I found these tutorials on pix4d's page which seemed quite useful and got me started on the csv workaround.
