    The 'take picture' command requests the drone to take a JPEG snapshot.

    The process takes a little while to complete and during this period the video feed may freeze.

    Sometimes [when?] the drone does not honour the request.

    Once the picture has been taken the drone responds with a File Sizemessage which must be acknowledged. Then the picture is sent chunked into File Data messages which must be reassembled to save the picture locally.
