    Did you forget to specify start video by start of mission?

    Mapping is by photo. And you cannot specify start in mapping mode.

    I need to experiment with this mode some more. I think I had the same experience on 3 or 4 attempts. Could be it is one of the features that does not work with Spark. I've been away from my hanger for several weeks so have not been able to do much lately.

    If you don’t make to the 300 feet, it can’t start the process. At least that’s why I think it doesn’t work for me.

    I can only suggest from my experience mapping with other DJI drones and other mapping software, But you may need to set the camera to trigger at an interval such as every 3 seconds in DJI go 4 and then once you you start your mission in autopilot trigger the camera shutter manually. Then it may continue to shoot throughout the mission. Please let me know if this works as I am keen to be able to map with my spark as well.
