Cameraless takeoff with Phantom 4 pro (or all of DJI drones)

Hi

Can I fly with Phantom 4 pro in a mission as Cameraless (only flight but don't take pictures in during mission)?
I want to take pictures manually.

Yes, you have to have the Cameraless takeoff feature and then use the Custom Camera selection the settings.

It was a good function but only the camera setting disabled!

Is there a way to have camera setting for Phantom 4 pro+ cameraless takeoff?

it's necessary for our photogrammetry method to better controlling drone in flight.

Correct. This basically assumes there is no camera selected. You can still use the photo and video buttons if you want but when using the Custom Camera setting it assumes you are not using a DJI camera.

Probably will never use this, but I'm curious.  If flying with the dji camera without Map Pilot tapping into it, then the last settings saved to the drone from GO should still be used, correct?   Or, is the programming being a little stinky and wiping the settings AND not letting the user set their own.

This feature was designed for using non-supported cameras/payloads, not DJI cameras. The settings of the camera that isn't the reason for the flight weren't likely taken into account. I don't what would happen.

That makes sense.  When the smoke clears, I'll check it out.
