    I have been flying my DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus for a few months. I use a fresh card emptied and during mid flight the video stops recording. I go to albums and it says card is full, but it isn't. Any suggestions guys?
    Thanks,
    Tommy

    Card may not have enough speed to record video.

    Maybe do a full format of the card in a PC.

    Check the below:
    Go in DJI app > Settings > When connection breaks
    Make sure the stop recording box is unchecked.
    Make sure state = stay in idle.

    When you say "emptied", how is it emptied? Did you "cut" the files to your PC HD? Or perhaps you did a blanket "delete" from the card after copying the files to your PC HD?

    Either way, have a go at the "format" feature in the app. I will clear all bits and pieces left behind, including any toolkits and other ballast "invisible" files.

    It should be formatted from the app while in the camera.
    Over time if you just delete files fragments are left and eventually cause problems to record any more on it.

    Formatting on a computer would work but you should use a special software designed for formatting SD cards.
    - It's still best to do it in camera.
    It only takes a few seconds and you may as well do it every time next flight after downloading.
    This applies to all digital cameras really.

    Card I probably junk. Also don't use anything other than an authentic class 10 card. (NO (ebay) knockoffs from drop shippers. Also don't use any cards over 32GB.
