Uploading UGCS Flight Route - Internet Required or possible with only a LAN?

Does anybody know whether or not a UGCS flight route can be uploaded to a drone using a LAN local area network connection or does it require an internet network connection?

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Steve,

which drone do you use?

DJI Matrice 600, Phantom 4 PRO, and a few custom hexroter frames - one with an A3 flight controller and one with an A2 flight controller

The standard approach is the following.

Android phone with UgCS for DJI application is connected to LightBridge 2 via USB.

UgCS Desktop is on your  laptop.

Laptop and phone are in the same WiFi network. This can be either a wifi hotspot on the phone or external wifi router.  

BR,

Alexei

Thanks for the quick replies Alexi.

The real answer I need to find out though is if I'm not in a cellular network area range ie. in the middle nowhere away from cellular towers, can we create a local area network not connected to the global internet for the laptop running UGCS desktop and the phone/tablet running UGCS for mobile to connect to and still be able to upload routes to the drones? We may not have internet access for some upcoming jobs but could create a LAN network easily enough to upload routes if it'll work.

You do not need an internet connection.
For the upload of your routes between notebook and UgCS Mobile a WLAN connection is enough. Your mobile device provides a hotspot and the notebook connects to it.

Tried this yesterday and can confirm uploading of routes works with a non internet WLAN. Awesome.
