(*** This has nothing to do with RPS/PLAN - just using normal CCC waypoints using google map of a location to determine the desired waypoint set - so sorry for any confusion - but then could easily use it for land/area mapping if used appropriately ***)

I have never used CCC/waypoints for photos, just video - but manual photos makes sense don't they - whereas the videociel site below allows for YAM heading, which is the aiming of the cam - works great for vids - plus you can rotate H480 to same or diff compass heading, i make them the same.

You could try the timed shots approach on H480 (iirc) or just do manual photo approach - obviously, have cam in photo mode at launch! - use the ST16 display to know when to shoot - but since video can be in 4khd (8mp) - it gives decent photos if sampled out of vid - but not the flexibility of post-processing the DNG, just a jpg from vid so limited post-processing ability.

An example "".ccc file of what 'VIDEOCIEL : Vidéos et photos par drone' web site produces via download :

I finally got a chance to fly the ROI mission I planned the other day. I took the H480 to the site and loaded the mission in the Waypoint application for the H920+. I armed the motors and swiped to start the mission then used the launch soft key to lift off. It rose to about 6 feet and hovered there. I then pressed the Play soft key and it said there was no running mission. I then reloaded the mission and swiped to start it. Now pressing Play launched the mission.

As the aircraft got to the first waypoint for the ROI it paused but no photo was taken. Same thing at position 2, so at position 3 I started pressing the shutter button. So it seems you need to trigger the camera yourself. Not a problem for a person doing this type of work on a budget or just starting out and building their business.

I plan to set up a mapping mission soon and give it a go. At this point I am pleased with the work that @howfastyes put into his Plan2RPS converter.
