Mission Planning with Ebee/eMotion software

I'm currently planning a mission in a remote area to create a detailed orthomosaic of some historic features in the Canadian Arctic. Pix4D talks about 75% frontal overlap (with respect to the flight direction) and at least 60% side overlap for general cases. eMotion 3 software uses the terms lateral overlap and longitudinal overlap. Is frontal overlap the same as lateral overlap, and lateral overlap the same as side overlap? Also, what are the recommended levels of overlap for an Ebee Drone when collecting images for an orthomosaic? I often get a warning that the longitudinal overlap may not be achievable when I set it for 60% overlap when lateral overlap is at 70%.

Thanks in advance for any help!!!!
