Camera angle settings

Hi there,

we are exploring the possibility to use a dji phatom 3 drone to do some massive forest edge recognition. For this we need to be able to see stakes that are 2m from trees feets.

We never tried the app, because dont have any copter-type drone yet.

I was wondering, when you plan a flight, is it possible to set a definite camera angle ? I was thinking of 2-3 flight lines parallel to the edge, with camera pointing 90° from flight direction and 30° down.

Thanks and have a good day.

you can set a camera angle to something other than nadir, but when you process the imagery in Pix4d be sure to set your processing type to Aerial Oblique or Terrestrial.
