"Set mission safe distance to ground and obstacles in each mission parameters, instead of vehicle profile. This is annoying to change if flying low one mission over a field, then over a forest. If you forget to raise the safe AGL then it will crash…"

"1. Have takeoff and landing point be the same (optional). Right now gets error regarding too close. 2. Have default view on new mission load be down with north up (or set as you wish). The current one I have to manually reset each time I load. 3.…"

"Hello Eben, we will try to investigate this incident ASAP. please let me know which version of Ugcs for DJI did you use? Was it alfa version of Ugcs for DJI 2.13 available for beta testers? Also please let me how did you activate this "waypoint…"

Eben N. Broadbent replied to DENY BAYONA's discussion Route Fail Waypoint altitude provided is invalid in the group UgCS
"make sure your settings for max altitude and above ground and distance radius and RTL are all set as you wish using the DJI GO App, then try again using the UGCS adn see if that makes a difference."

"5. Have default view be Nadir and North up (or make that optional setting). I have to every time reset to this when I open a new mission. 6. Set 3D ground clearance. When going up very steep hills I find the drone, for example, flying at 50 AGL…"

Alexey Dobrovolskiy replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion Plan mission including Digital Surface Model as 3D object in the group UgCS
"Hi Eben,  My colleagues were able to generate Collada models of buildings using Agisoft Photoscan couple of years ago - may be it will work in your case too."

"arg, i've been trying everything to convert point clouds or geotif DEM into a Collada and can't figure it out. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks!"

"Hi, I collect .las point clouds using a laser scanner, first flying at a high AGL to ensure I don't collide with a tree crown, then fly lower to get denser understory of the forest. From the point cloud I was creating a raster geotiff to import…"

Alexey Dobrovolskiy replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion Plan mission including Digital Surface Model as 3D object in the group UgCS
"Hi Eben, there is no possibility to load geotiff as 3D object. Only as elevation data. What is source of your data? Point cloud as result of photogrammetry/laser scanning? Please check may be your software can export data as KMZ with built-in…"

Eben N. Broadbent replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion Plan mission including Digital Surface Model as 3D object in the group UgCS
"Hi Alexey, Yes, but that doesn't work as I would want to be - for example - 60 meters AGL on the DEM, but 20 meters AGL on the DSM. Now, it would be possible to adjust this, however the DSM has gaps in it and if I were to fly over a gap then…"

"Hi Eben, you can import DSM the same way as DEM - https://www.ugcs.com/files/manuals/how-to/UgCS_DEM_data_import_Instruction.pdf (if you use UgCS 2.13). If you use UgCS 3.0, you can import DEM data in Layers window."

Plan mission including Digital Surface Model as 3D object

How could I include a Digital Surface Model (DSM) (with native Geotiff format) as a 3D Object to avoid hitting objects when creating missions at low AGL?See More

Eben N. Broadbent replied to Eben N. Broadbent's discussion Save flight plan and load into multiple flights? in the group UgCS
"Excellent, thank you! I also recommend UgCS. Thanks for sharing the tip and I will try this out. I'm curious how adaptive turning works with this approach and if it will produce nice smooth figure eight patterns, hope so!"

"Hi, just returned from Intergeo expo in Berlin. Here we had lot of conversations with LIDAR manufacturers and UgCS + LIDAR users. We found that lot of them use "perimiter" to warm up the system. Also perimeter allows to create eight-like…"
