Unwanted photos

I use map pilot to gather photos for Pix4d.  It often takes a photo of the landing spot when landing or leaving.  Also randomly takes "straight forward" shots of the horizon, apparently while en route to or from the abandonment point.  These photos get mixed in with the "good" nadir photos.  What am I doing wrong?

The images that the app records while the aircraft is on the ground are Ground Reference images:

The images on the flight path should certainly not be happening. You might want to check your C1 and C2 buttons for associated actions, other apps being open or gimbal calibration issues. Check the DJI Diagnostics column of the CSV log file for hardware related issues.

Been using MP since it was released and I honestly can't remember a single instance where a non-nadir image was recorded other than the one on the ground at take off.
