Can you run multiple scripts?

I shoot aerials from a multirotor copter drone. I have been using the intervalometer scripts for 2 yrs. Now I want to shoot RAW so dont want wasted shoots while it is on the ground. Can I run:
Intervalometer Plus motion detection.
So when on the ground and looking at the grass it doesnt shoot.
Thanks in advance

You can only switch between scripts from scripts menu. There's no possibility to run two scripts at the same time, if you mean this. However you could write a script that combines possibilities of two others in one.

I'm not sure, whether this is the answer you need?

PS. it seems that it would be nice to have different startup script than script you run by shoot_full. This is not currently supported, but it wouldn't be hard to change the source code to provide such thing.
if (2*b || !2*b) {
    cout<<question
}

Compile error: poor Yorick

Do what SDM users do for stratospheric balloon flights   ... fit a lens cap, detect when it is removed by measuring brightness and then pause running of the script for a further minute or so.
