Roof Issues

This was a test mission flown with MP for iOS.  It was flown at 164'.  Normal mission. The roof is approx. 35'-40' above the take off area. 80% overlaps. 

Flew at the recommended 4x above highest point. What are some things that may have caused the roof issue?  What needs to be changed in my mission?

Would like to test again processing on your platform.

Yeah, this doesn't look great. Different systems have different requirements. The 4-5X should be considered the minimum you need to be overlap the tallest spot. 

Flying higher would help. 

Since you are at the minimum allowable height you would want to up to the overlap a bit to make sure you can resolve the roof properly. 

Mapping a slightly larger area would help. 

Orienting your passes along the long axis or the short axis would likely help to. Doing it diagonal cuts into the overlap you get pretty severely when doing such a small area.

Thanks. Will try.

I guess I'm asking why DD works and MME is giving me processing issues....

Different systems have different requirements. Maps Made Easy does not run on DD. 

Usually I would say that that dataset probably should have worked out but with smaller jobs like this odd things can happen. Especially when dark shadows like that are involved.
