UgCS 2.8 Is Now Live!


We're very excited to announce the release of UgCS 2.8.

Visually the first thing you will notice is that the new version features an improved user interface – you are now able to change the visual theme yourself. By default it now comes with a new black/green theme and you are able to select either the previous blue theme or two other new ones.

Another major improvement is that UgCS windows are now manually resizable! UgCS can now be resized as any ordinary application. This allows for more intuitive control of the UgCS application window and makes UgCS easier to use alongside other programs.

One more visual improvement we have made is that the position of home location of your drone is now displayed on the map in UgCS.

Click & Go functionality is now available for all DJI autopilots through UgCS, including A2, Wookong-M, Naza-M V2 and Ace One in addition to already being available for DJI Phantom 3 and Inspire 1.


We have also made UgCS easier to integrate with ADS-B transponders. Commands can now be sent to the ADS-B transponder through UgCS interface. ICAO ID, Flight ID and SQUAWK Code parameters can be set through UgCS. This feature is available for UgCS Pro users.

Also various bug fixes have been made to make UgCS run better.

  • Hi,

    UgCS tested on these operation systems:

    Windows: Windows XP with SP2 or later; Windows 7 with SP1 or later; Windows 8 

    Mac OS: Mac OS X Maverick 10.9 or later

    Linux: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 14.04 LTS and 15.04 (32 bit and 64 bit)

    This list is from UgCS user manual.

    Also UgCS works on Windows 10, but not fully tested in all configurations.

    We cannot assure that UgCS will even start on all variations of Linux. Sorry...

  • Hello,

    just now, i read about the new release. So i thought, giv'em a try.

    i have some not so nice comments about. I  installed under Linux Mint, running Cinnamon Desktop.

    First bad thing: use of Java. But this is only my opinion.

    2nd: First start: only a blue window, beside use of CPU, nothin happend (CPU increased to 100%)

    3rd: After killing, i restart, This times, it seems to start, but then it crashed my cinnamon.

    So i deleted it.

    Even this Software seems to have some nice features, there is no way to use it. Everytime i see a software, which should run on every system, which is written in Java,

    doesn't work.

    But, still, keep doing your stuff. I like the videos...

  • Amazing work @Kristaps Brass

  • Love it!
