    Just get a Micro SD to USB device :) Take the MicroSD out of the gimball, put it in the device, then plug that into your TV, jobs a good un.

    Well it would be a bit complicated, but if you are able to play the files off the SD card on your TV, you could then set up a HDPVR or something to then record your TV, but end of the day it would be way easier to just get some video software and do it on your PC!

    A PC is best. Especially for video. You could transfer to a device (tab,phone)
    Then if that device will accept a usb drive, transfer the files again.
    So that would go like this.

    SD card -> device -> USB drive

    15 minute flight of video could give you 7GB of data and it will be in two files.

    If you only shoot stills in 16:9 JPG format the files are about 4MB.
