Mixing Drone and DSLR images getting two components, can't combine even with control points?

    The residuals should not be an issue, the angles and the overlap is. You can't go from top down to 45 degrees immediately. There needs to be better angle work in-between so there is no big change in what the picture sees continuously.

    Thanks Erik

    This is good to know. So for something like thus (assuming you could scale it up to something much larger) when doing those overhead drone shots are you better having the drone gimbal at say 70 degrees (as opposed) to 90 degrees straight down, and going a bit wider? I'm thinking doing that you are halfway to having a closer angle to the next row of circling drone shots? 

    Also am I correct in thinking control points won't let you stitch "anything" from a scene there needs to be some fundamental connecting "flow" between images? 

    Thanks for your comments

    Well I'd go for 90 degrees then 70, 45 and then side shots. The overlap should be like 60% so the camera position motion has to be really fluent, just as angles.
    Correct, to connect some components via CPs there has to be something matching at least. It can't look too different.

    Cheers Erik this should be easy to do once I start running mapping missions and can just run multiple passes with different gimbal tilts. I did do another trial today with just 60% gimbal tilt and was much better but your suggestion would totally nail it.

    Many thanks!
