I wanted to let you know what UgCS 2.0 Beta is now available for download at our site www.ugcs.com !

UgCS 2.0 now supports Ardupilot, Mikrokopter, Microdrones, ARDrone and DJI (Naza-m, wookong-m, A2) autopilots.

As shown in our teaser, UgCS 2.0 has now real 3D globe map engine and capability to search for locations for quick navigation.


Please feel free to download it and see the beauty with your own eyes :)

As always your feedback is greatly appreciated, as together we can build really one of the kind ground control software!

Thank you!

UgCS Team

Janis: Congrats! At first pass, this looks great on OSX. One question: is there any way to turn on 3D maps? I find 3D mission planning on a 2D map somewhat limiting, since you can't see the terrain variation.  See below:

Hi Chris,
UgCS 2.0 doesn't have switch between 2D or 3D maps. Now we have only 3D. I have checked same place on my computer, everything worked ok. Please zoom out little bit and you should see mountains..

I meant real 3D, the way it is on Google Earth, where you can see smaller hills and trees:

Hmm, now I understand.

This is 3D objects on landscape. We have partial support for them in UgCS 1.5, and this will be supported in UgCS 2.0 little bit later. We need to implement loading of KML files, it was surprisingly complex task and we still not finished it.

How does UGCS support DJI autopilots ?

I do real estate videography for a successful realtor (who happens to be my wife). A lack of 3D perspective can result in missions that find the tallest tree in the county. I just checked out UgCS and the 3D perspective seemed better than Mission Planner - where it is totally lacking. But I see no support in UgCS for spline waypoints among other things. Also I may just be very stupid but I have never figured out how to plug a street address into Mission Planner whereas UgCS was very intuitive in this respect. This looks promising. But we need spline waypoints.

Below is a gratuitous un-topical recent video of one of my quads 'landing' in mid-mission perfectly on a 100 foot tree (I got it back).

Just wanted to confirm that this only supports copters right now (if not I apologize for misreading the documentation).
