    I have a new drone because of a crash and decided to test the video.
    During the same flight I get a repeated start and stop motion and then a smooth motion . It is a P3A
    Any help to correct it would be appreciated.

    Do you mean the actual video on your card, or the live feed to your tablet while you're flying? If it's the live feed, it could be the tablet....what are you using?

    You will get a choppy video on your mobile if the transmission at the bit rate that you selected can not achieved of mobile device can't process the stream of frames.

    Sounds as though it may be that your computer is not powerful enough...particularly if you're shooting in 4K.

    I am using a iPhone 6 Plus and start the recording using the start button on the phone. Today I am going to try starting the video using the start button on the controller and see if that makes a difference.How do u determine the bit rate and get it to match both the drone and the camera.

    Not shooting in 4K. No problem with showing and recording with my hand held camera.
