What format are the source rasters in? tif?

What coordinate system are the source rasters it?

What system you select for the mosaic depends in part on what you want to do with it. If it is a small area and just want to look at it in Arc and you are in the US I would go for the state plane system of the image area...

What is the error message?

Raster in JPEG format

DJI Phantom standard output coordinate system (part of my question).
Ok state plane system.. so in Sweden it´s WGS_1984_UTM_zone_33?

Yes. Looks like Sweden falls within a few UTM zones. With most of it zone 33. 

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the drone you are using. You will definitely need to know the system of the source rasters from the drone. I would think that the output system would be in the documentation some place. What happens if you just display one of the images in arc? Is that working ok?
