Abstract : Flight parameters are an important element in producing an accurate photogrammetric product. The different settings for the flight parameters especially in a low altitude photogrammetry flight mission can have a significant impact on the results. Therefore, a comprehensive analysis on flight parameters is needed to guide industry practitioners in utilizing the correct settings during flight missions. The aim of this study is to analyse the impact of different flight planning settings such as altitudes as well as overlap and sidelap percentages. The multirotor drone was used to capture the aerial images at the selected study location. The images were captured from three different altitudes with three different overlap and sidelap percentages. The error analysis was performed to identify the effect on altitudes as well as the overlap and sidelap percentages in this study. It was found that a lower altitude requires less overlap and sidelap compared to a high altitude. The standard deviation range of a good combination for XY coordinate is +0.066m to +0.091m while the Z coordinate is +0.031m to +0.045m. In conclusion, the selection of overlap and sidelap percentages depends on the flight altitudes. High precision photogrammetric results can be obtained if the correct procedure has been followed.
