Drone only taking a few images

I took my drone off the other day, the flight plan told me it would take 200 photos. I executed this mission, then found that the drone was only displaying it had taken 6 photos. Once I had let the mission run I double checked this on the SD and it still had only taken 6.

I am flying a DJI Phantom advance on android,

I repeated the whole process another day and had the same problem. Any help much appreciated?

I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the app and also turning the mobile device off and back on to clear out possible conflicts.

Hi @Jonathan_Ford,

In addition to what Gary has shared, I’d also recommend taking a look at our Making Successful Maps support page and reformatting your SD card.


Make sure you are using a fast SD card like Sandisk Ultra. I made the mistake of using a cheap generic card and ended up with no images.
