Edge of roofs curvy should be straight

The rest of the map looks good. Straight lines on the ground look good.  Lines on top of roof are straight. Only edges are not. I'm sure you've seen this before. See my most recent project for examples. 70% overlap 115m height.

Your overlap report shows almost all yellows, oranges and reds. This reflects the use of 50% overlap or so. If you want the 3D model to be accurate you need to use 80% overlap. 

You may have set it to 70% but if the area you are surveying is way above where you took off you will get less overlap.

Understood. But I was only wishing for a decent 2D map not 3D.  Due to the height problem I should set 80%?  Launch was within 10m of ground under buildings. Perhaps the building are 1/4 the flight altitude.
