    Using a Shield K1 and learned how to screen record. Question is why is this a big deal when you have the flight records within the Go App. One of the advantages I found when researching tablets was that the Shield had the ability to screen record. Don't see why that is an advantage.

    Recording the screen can be useful in cases where you're trying to demonstrate something you're doing in DJI GO or if you want to document your flight in case of a failure/crash. The flight records only allow you to play your flight back on a flat map.

    Seems the flight record would be more useful in a crash as it shows stick position, elevation, speed, etc.

    Yes, the flight record is no doubt the most useful tool when diagnosing the cause of flight issues and/or crashes.
