Point shots distance

I have had problems performing a 28m altitude mission with my iPad mini 2 (w/LTE) and P4P, 14m offset. They was not enough time to store jpegs and the app closed in the middle of the mission
So I started over with some changes: turned on Airplane Mode, reduced overlapping from 80% to 75% and set the maximum speed to its minimum: 2m/s.
I could complete the mission without warnings or any other events.

My concern is about the point shots distance. This is a screenshot from Lightroom where the photos were taken. I don´t know if the holes are covered by neighbor shots until the stitching process ends.
Another concern is about repeating the mission.  I need to get the images always from the same point (same coords) in a regular built net.  Is that possible?

After stitched image. One of the photos taken during the mission compared with the result.

The iPad Mini 2 is the lowest possible processor that can be used with Map Pilot. DJI has added some behind the scenes logging lately that hogs the CPU and leaves less for the actual application. 

You can either try it with turning off all other applications at the time of operation or using the Connectionless mode which does not require the app to trigger the camera. 

You should be able to see this behavior in the dots being dropped as the aircraft moves. 

If neither of these is the case you may want to make sure you are using an empty SD card and a genuine Apple cable. Believe it or not it makes a huge difference. 

 

If you are not happy with how your maps are turning out it is a sign that you need to take your images with more overlap.

Also, use the georeferenced image workflows if you camera supports it. The P4P does.

Hi,  I already had turned off all apps (restarted iOS, actually), turned on Airplane Mode, used an empty Samsung Pro 64GB U3.   Apple cable is that came with my iMac to charge mouse and keyboard

Is it possible to rebuild the image using georeferenced workflow and already uploaded images?

That created one is useless.

Thank you.

Is that possible upload the mission to the aircraft to perform it without depending on the iPad?

I use other apps that don't need keep them opened to execute the mission after it is uploaded.
