I’m seeing the exact same thing on all 3 of my drones today. One with 1.08 firmware, two with the new 1.09 firmware. The drone will take off just fine and take some pictures, but not all. One field was 2 pics, the next field was about 30 pics, but then no images after that. Send it up again, and it works just fine. Weird.
I’ll try to troubleshoot it tomorrow. Maybe it’s a SD card thing. Maybe it is that initial connection…it seemed if the remote had a great line of site, it worked better, but I’m speculating 8 hours after the event. I do know if I had the drone on the ground, remote on top of the car, I tended to have more problems taking off and sending the mission data.
If you find anything, please let me know. I’m killing a lot of time flying fields twice to get one set of data!!
