    Are they practical to upload to youtube etc ?

    How big are the file sizes.

    I did read somewhere a 1 minute uncompressed file was 32gb

    not sure if its compressed or not (i guess it is ) but if so how much compression. ?

    Recording time will vary according to the resolution setting used and the card capacity. Here are the average recording storage times for HERO4 cameras with a 64GB SD card.

    Note #1: If you are using a 32 GB SD card, these average record times would be half as large.

    Note #2: These are not battery life estimates, it these are storage capacity estimates for the SD card.

    I've seen one P3 sample on RCGroups and it was 480mb for just over a minute.
    You could budget on about 1GB for 2 minutes.
    How you set it for rendering especially bitrate will change the size to upload.
    If you make the bitrate about 20 rather than 50 it will be about half the size so a short clip won' be impossible even on ADSL.

    Blade strike said his 5 minute flight created about 2.5 gigs of video.

    Edit: beat by 4wd, approximately the same.
