Mission Planner and the "Camera" option

I've filled the Camera dialogbox with information and it shows the following info:

What are the key values I need when calculating the overlap?

How do calculate what speed I need to fly to match the flightline distance to get 70% overlap? I use CHDK to trigger the camera with a intervalometer script every 3 sec. I'll probably get a trigger circuit or a GentLED to do the triggering.

Is it possible to get the "Grid" creation process to output a waypoint at the right interval to achieve this? In that case one could use DO_SET_SERVO to trigger the camera at every waypoint.

The simple maths is this
you need to take a shot every 62.14m, if its set at 3 seconds you need to travel at 62/3 = 10.6 m/s

Thanks Michael! Now I see how it's calculated and what values to look at.

I think you meant to write 20,6 m/s.

correct, and opps.
