Dear DIY Drones Community,

We`re very excited to announce the release of the new version of UgCS – 2.5.

Improvements in the GUI now make mission planning more intuitive than ever.

One of the new features is that you can now draw the route you want to fly on the map and the waypoints will be plotted automatically.

Additionally, waypoints now have arrows between them, indicating the direction as well as arrows for adjusting the height or position of waypoints.

Also, some improvements have been made for fixed wing support, including separate Air speed and Ground speed parameters for vehicles equipped with air speed sensors as well as the default max glide slope has been increased to 20% for auto landings.

UgCS 2.5 can be downloaded from

Safe flights,
UgCS Team

Has this been tested in Windows 10 yet?

Could we have categories for posts ? So that it's clearly visible from the frontpage is something is open source & free or paid/requires a monthly fee and maybe a seperate category for regular posts that describe events, news etc.

About Windows 10 - while it is not yet fully tested, UgCS runs on Windows 10, yes.

johnkowalsky - our UgCS Open version currently has about 2000 users so it is probably useful for them to know about the release of our new versions.
