Arducopter Camera Trigger Questions

So I have been mapping happily with Arduplane and Pixhawk, but now I want to take photos from a multirotor. I have set up an APM 2.6 to the stage where I can take photos using CH_7 on my transmitter. It works. All good.

Now I want to take photos using waypoints or using CAM_TRIGG_DIST.

I can't find CAM_TRIGG_DIST in the full parameter list!!!! WHere is it? The tutorials talk about it, but there appears to be some discussion as whether it is available for arducopter. I am not using the latest release as the one I have is very stable.

My settings are;

CAM_TRIGG_TYPE  is set to Servo

CH7_Opt is set to camera trigger

RC10_FUNCTION is set to Camera Trigger

CAM_DURATION is set to 1 second

CAM_SSERVO_OFF is set to 968

CAM_SERVO_ON is set to 2070

The above settings work. I can take photos by flicking CH_7 on my transmitter.

Here's the questions;

In the camera setup for the grid in mission planner in advanced menu (in the "Trigger Method" Box);

1) What value do I use for "Servo"? Does 10 = RC10?

2) Do I use 2070 for the PWM value?

3) Do I use CAM_TRIGG_DIST or DO_REPEAT_SERVO to trigger the camera?

4) Once I am flying in auto, can I still use CH7 on my TX to take additional photos?

Thanks.
