    Do not understand the memory card size needed for Phantom 3 Pro. I have read and read posts on here about the memory size, but everyone just suggests cards with a 90 MB/s read and write speed. Though is it needed or does a card with a 20 or 30 Mb/s write work for the 4K?

    The Phantom writes at a max speed of 7.5MB/s. That means you can pretty much use any class 10 memory card. But, you might want to get a memory card with a faster read/write speed to cut down on the time it takes when manually copying files to/from the memory card. For that reason, it usually makes sense to spend a little more to get a faster memory card.

    You can find a list of commonly used memory cards here.

    Oh finally one that says things as they are. I read a lot of people talking about uh1 uh3 sd...the truth is that every (good signature) sd card simply class 10 can handle 4k of p3/p4 because is normally double fast than the bitrate writing of P3.
