I've noticed that when analyzing flight logs with geotagged images, you're able to display the image centers. Is there a way to display the full image under that center?Continue

Errors with 3s RAW image trigger time @ Phantom 4 PRO

Started by Bodo Schütze. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Feb 3. 6 Replies

Hello there,over the past year the RAW image trigger time with our Phantom 4 "PRO" has increased from 1 image every 2.x seconds to 4s. In early 2017 it was still possible to dial in any number for the trigger speed in UgCS and if you went too low/too fast, you would get an error *during flight* about the camera being too busy to process the current command.. those were the still pretty good days with that drone since we could get the most out of it. I think around 2.5s was a safe value.In…Continue

Is anyone having issues with exporting telemetry and geo-tagging photos since the last update (2.13(401)).I'm using a M600 PRO, A3, LB2. the missions work perfectly and everything else is super stable, as always, but when I try to export the telemetry it will says it "converting telemetry" indefinitely 9/10 times. I have to restart the laptop completely several times before it will finally export. I did not have these issues with the previous version, I haven't tried rolling back because I…Continue

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

Terrain Following / DEM issue

Started by Robert Matthews. Last reply by Alexey Dobrovolskiy Dec 12, 2017. 10 Replies

Hello all, I seem to be having an issue with the DEM while planning a photogrammetry mission.When planning a photogrammetry mission today it seemed to be giving me a strange terrain following solution when using 0, 90, 180, 270 or anything close to those numbers for the "direction angle". If I choose 45 degrees (or something far away from the 4 main compass points) it gives a much better flight plan with good terrain following but if I choose 0, 90, 180, 270 etc.. degrees it will give a very…Continue

Comment by DEEPESH PARATE on February 9, 2018 at 10:11am

I'm working on writing a parser code to convert xml exported from ugcs into a format suitable for paparazzi to use. The current flight plan xml that I have from ugcs has a completely different format from the one of paparazzi so I'm thinking of going for px4 flight plan. Can someone please tell me if it's going to be helpful or not?

Comment by Isabelle Heitz on February 2, 2018 at 11:29am

I have the same problem. How did you solve your problem ? 

Comment by belkacem guerbasse on November 20, 2017 at 8:22am
I installed the Android application I use a multirotor with a dji A3 I have a problem I have no indication of battery level
Comment by juan pablo gayoso on January 19, 2017 at 11:11am

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.

Comment by andrew cutter on May 6, 2016 at 8:46am

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 ?
