Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Tom Hallman's discussion UgCS with 3DR Solo? in UgCS
"Ryan, did you figure out the issue? Ryan Henderson said:
Old thread here I know but...

The current version of UGCS seems to connect just fine to the Solo. The only thing I can't seem to get working is uploading a mission to the aircraft. I receive…"

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Adilson de Oliveira Carneiro Jr's discussion M600_Take-off moves after upload mission in UgCS
"Not sure if this is your problem, but I have encountered this when operating in steep terrain.  If the Home Point is not set over the drone properly in UGCS, the altitude of the UGCS set home point will offset the altitude of the drone when it takes…"

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Alexander Shenkin's discussion How to figure out why Inspire is doing an RTH? in UgCS
"With our Matrice's we would get unintended RTH every 20 hours of flight or so.  The worst is when it does an unintended landing.  After looking at the DJI flight log in DJI Assistant, there was a 0 voltage reading which triggered an immediate…"

Thomas Stanley-Jones left a comment on UgCS
"How many people are operating multiple drones from the same laptop?  Looking for tips on two DJI Matrice operated from one UGCS base station for surveying.  Is it very confusing keeping them straight as they are leaving and coming back?  Or just…"

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Alexander Shenkin's discussion Add RTH at end of mission? in UgCS
"Hi Janis, how does uploading the next route "when the drone has finished previous while the drone is still in the air" functionality work?  I have always thought that turning the drone off and on resets the mission, requiring a new upload.  Maybe I…"

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…

I get this error when I'm planning very large missions (more than 1200 waypoints approximately) and trying to pair them down to a manageable size.Once I get this error, I'm unable to remove routes from the program since they show up again after…

"Are there plans to allow drag and select for selecting a group of waypoints? Alexey Dobrovolskiy said:

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Thomas Stanley-Jones's discussion Strange Waypoint Vertical Jump in UgCS
"Ok, figured this out.  If the 'Safe Height Over Terrain' of the Vehicle Profile is the same as the flight height of the route, and it's been converted to waypoints, that's when it does this."

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Thomas Stanley-Jones's discussion Strange Waypoint Vertical Jump in UgCS
"I haven't tried flying it this way, is it possible it's just a graphical bug?  It does this in 3.0.1302 and 3.0.537.  I haven't tried others yet."

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Thomas Stanley-Jones's discussion Areascan with Basepoint in UgCS
"We do large area surveys and need to break the area up into small ones for VLOS.  So having many small routes is very common."

Thomas Stanley-Jones replied to Thomas Stanley-Jones's discussion Areascan with Basepoint in UgCS
"If I make two overlapping Areascans, the lines don't match up, it requires converting to waypoints and carefully moving them so they lines line up with eachother. But then the over all area covered becomes scewed.  It's just awkward.  If I could set…"
