It isn't going to make a difference if they are taken in order or not. If you think about the mapping, there are different points in a variety of photos, often taken far apart. 

I suggest whatever app is easiest for you to use, and depending on what you are trying to model. 

If I'm modeling an entire neighborhood, I'm going to do an automated flight NADIR and an automated flight w/ the camera at say 45 degrees.

If I'm modeling 1 house, I'm going to free fly and do a couple of passes around the house at different heights/angles.

3D mapping can be done with top down, however I think getting some oblique shots is very helpful for a better model. 

is it useful if i set 80% overlap and 80% sidelap for 3D model?
