    The SD Card wont stay in place, I can hear the click but it wont stay in the camera, and yes I know how to seat it. I cant really see anything broken by looking through the end with a light, no foreign object, and I have never crashed it. Any ideas what is going on, how to fix it or who could fix it.

    just southwest of Houston,TX. The board that the SD Card slot is on can be easily removed from the rest of the camera, I wonder if anyone has a camera that is broken, that they would be willing to sell?

    Hi, just came across this post. I have my P3 for about a week now flying it no problems at all. Today I tried putting in my micro sd card and it won't stay. Any advice? Would DJI cover that in the warrenty?
    Kind of disappointed seems like it wasn't made well.
    Thanks!
