Launching the drone on the first mission

Before launching the drone for a mission, ensure that it is switched on and connected to UgCS for mission uploading.

If the DJI drone is linked with the DJI Pilot 2 application, the launch must be performed from the DJI Pilot 2 interface. However, if the DJI drone is connected with UgCS for DJI or Ardupilot/PX4 drones, it can be launched directly from UgCS Desktop.

To upload the planned route to the drone, the following is required:

For DJI drones:

  • UgCS for DJI mobile application and UgCS Desktop must be in one network;
  • UgCS for DJI must be connected to UgCS Desktop.

When connection is established, select the route;

Select the connected drone;

Select the "Upload" command button;

Select "Start route from the beginning";

After the route is successfully uploaded, click on the "Auto Mode" command button.

Resume route function

If there is a need to interrupt the flight for battery change or any other reason, the proceeded route is memorized. To resume the flight, choose “Upload” for the route. For a partially completed route, a dialogue with four options will be displayed:

Continue route. This option allows continuing the route exactly where it was dropped.
Start route from the beginning. The mission will start from the first waypoint.
Start route from waypoint #. This option will send the drone to the specified route waypoint, from which it will proceed with the mission.
Take-off to route’s first waypoint. In case the mission area is further than 30 meters from the initial drone location, an additional waypoint is required to overcome the 30-meter safety distance. This checkbox will send the drone through this first waypoint onto the mission.
