[Help] Camera trigger by waypoints

I'm wanting to fly multiple sensors on an M600, one of which is a FLIR Vue Pro R thermal camera. I want to fly both sensors at the same time, so a Zenmuse gimbal isn't an option. I know I can hook the FLIR up to the A3 controller and trigger it manually, but need to take multiple images over a large area to eventually make a mosaic. So the images will have to be taken at pre-determined points and geotagged. Right now, my idea is to just attach a PixHawk for only GPS camera triggering. So I would make a flight plan in Mission Planner for the camera, and a similar flight plan in a DJI app for the actual flight.

Is there currently a way to trigger a camera by waypoints within DJI or 3rd party products? Or should I stick to my PixHawk idea?


i think it is a absolute yes for your question.
but i am just anther developer starting using onborad SDK.
so, let's wait the tech guy's answer.

As reflected already on your question in the Mobile SDK section, this could be solved by a combining Mobile SDK and Onboard SDK including data transparent tranmission.

I developed a solution like this. It can generate a signal on one of the PWM channels at each waypoint in order to trigger a camera:

I guess, something like this is coming close to your requirements:
