In addition to flight scene overlap percentages, allow manual setting of lateral flight line spacing between 1-500 metres

For flying surveys with sensors additional to or beside standard photogrammetry

    Will be shipped with next update:

    • Line Distance below horizontal (side) overlap slider

    • Waypoints Distance below vertical (forward) overlap slider

    Adding additional two sliders (for each line spacing an additional slider) will make the UI too cluttered.

    Instead, I'd like to ask you a different solution that might work for you and keep the UI clean:
    if we would provide below the overlap slider the resulting (average) line spacing for the corresponding chosen overlap?

    That sounds excellent, adding the average flight line spacing readout below the overlap slider, and using this to adjust the overlap to equal an average line spacing. This would be useful for sensors other than cameras used on drones. It's common practice to fly some surveys at an average line spacing rather than overlap, let's say 10 m, 25 m, 50 m etc.

    Thank you I will test this in the next few weeks and let you know if I have
    any questions, will test in some hilly terrain
