M600_Take-off moves after upload mission

Started by Adilson de Oliveira Carneiro Jr. Last reply by Artūrs on Wednesday. 3 Replies

Hi, My missions are designed for 50m AGL, but when I upload the mission the UAV is reprojected in a point higher than the ground altitude, so the AGL not correspond zero(0m) at the take-off moment (with UAV in the ground) and the UAV flights below 50m.Please, help me to understand this situation.Continue

HiThe Zoom control doesn't seem to make the camera zoom in or out. We've had to manually set it before a route. Is there something I'm missing? Is the Z30 a supported camera? If not, is there a list of supported cameras? If so, what are expected values that can go into that field?Thanks...Continue

Waypoint distance too close. Photometery Mission Error

Started by Colin Murray. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Aug 21. 5 Replies

HelloI attempted a photometery mission using Open UgCS covering about a 250m2 area. I could not successfully upload the mission to the Phantom 4. The error on the UgCS app told me that the "Waypoint distance is too close". Is there any further detail on what this warning means? how to correct it?I removed my takeoff and landing points from the route and made sure to adjust the area of the mission to be away from the UAV's home base thinking that this was the issue. I also experimented with a…Continue

DJI GO and Andriod

Started by Angela Livingston. Last reply by Janis Jonins Jul 15. 5 Replies

We just bought UgCS and I have a Galaxy Tab A6.  It seems with DJI Go's latest version this tablet cannot handle the camera feed.  Which I think is the reason we are not getting a camera feed in UgCS.I'm running Andriod version 5.1.1.  Is there anyway to bypass the DGI GO limitation or another workaround in UgCS?Continue

Parrot Anafi

Started by Thomas Stanley-Jones. Last reply by Alexei Yankelevich Jul 14. 1 Reply

I see the Parrot AR drone as an option in the Profile page of UGCS, but I'm not sure if this is what the Anafi is running or not.  If it is, how do I connect the laptop to the Anafi so that UGCS can see it?  I've connected the laptop to the Anafi's wifi, but UGCS doesn't automatically see the drone like when a comport radio is plugged in, or DJI is on the network.Continue

Corridor scan in UgCS

Started by Greg. Last reply by Greg Jun 4. 2 Replies

I am a new user to UgCS. I really need to be able to do a corridor scan where I define a path (like a power line or a pipeline or a railroad line) and have the flight paths created automatically based on my camera parameters/GSD. QGroundControl has this feature and it works very well. Is it possible to do this in UgCS currently? Could you PLEASE add the feature to UgCS? This is a huge feature for me as I do missing person searches and I need to follow along certain terrain features. Thank you.Continue
