We want to announce the release of UgCS 2.8.1 - an update to UgCS 2.8.
In the new version we have improved DJI vehicle detection algorithm as well as improved the DJI Datalink connectivity and stability. Hold & Continue commands have now been added to all DJI vehicles.
We have improved the performance of UgCS on Mac computers, Mac users should notice a significant increase in performance as the map loading time has been decreased.
Geotagging feature has been improved as it now writes the AMSL altitude into the EXIF record of the image.
Automatic calculation of camera trigger by time / distance has been enabled for Area Scan mission. This means that now to achieve full area coverage you have to enable “Action in every point” checkbox.
Please note that now by default in the installer only Pixhawk/APM and DJI vehicle specific modules are selected. If needed, the ones for other autopilots need to be selected manually. This reduces the load on the computer, making UgCS run smoother and more efficiently.
