I ran more tests - this time deliberately blocking the controller signal while the drone was in the air and had already started taking photos.
I can confirm that after a significant break in the connection…usually 20-30 seconds…does it and stops the process. I’m not sure if it’s the lose of connection, or the re-connection sequence that is doing it.
I’ve re-created the problem in other flights and can also run the same flight without issue. While the flight path is never effected at all…the photo taking sequence does stop and the state of the camera upon return - either facing down or ahead seems to be random.
I understand you are limited as to what you can do with the drone - working with another’s code and build - but is this something that the DD team has identified as an issue and is it fixable or are you limited by DJI’s tech?
