UgCS for DJI setup

Started by Mike Sousa 2 hours ago. 0 Replies

HiI've been able to get a number of routes to execute but still have some questions about some of UgCS for DJi's functionality:Can I get the video recording to start at a specific waypoint? I usually start it with the 'Set Camera Mode' section of the Mission Editor before uploading.Can I have the video recording stored on the Android device? Right now it is stored on an SD card inserted into the Mavic 2 Zoom.I've looked through the UgCS for DJI manual. Is there a video of how to use the app?…Continue

Capture and save manual flight path/mission for later use

Started by Mike Sousa. Last reply by Janis Jonins on Friday. 8 Replies

HiI'm thinking that Joystick more or Manual Mode would be the way to do this. I'd like to fly the quad, have the flight path captured and saved so that it can be reloaded and used again automatically. Are there tutorials or more directions available for using the Joystick or Manual modes? If those aren't the ways to do this, would UgCS be capable using other its facilities?Thanks...Continue

UgCS Mapper and Windows 7

Started by Mike Sousa. Last reply by Janis Jonins on Friday. 1 Reply

I have a Windows 7 laptop with UgCS Mapper installed. When I try to run Mapper, it looks like a Box (Dos or javaw box?) come up and goes away very quickly or I would include what's in it here. Also, in Task Manager, while watching the 'Processes view, a javaw process does try to start but then goes quickly away when trying to start UgCS Mapper. Is Mapper usable at the moment? If so, does it work with Windows 7? If both questions are affirmative, does it work with output from a Facade…Continue

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.
