    First post! P3 standard. I'm having trouble getting pics off my camera, unless I remove the card. What is the proper procedure for doing this, or is something wrong. I would like to just use the USB on the camera. Thx

    It's easiest (and fastest) to remove the memory card from the Phantom, insert it into a memory card reader (I like this one), and insert the memory card reader into your computer.

    That's what I do. The card is tricky to put in, if you're not careful

    I you You are hooking the USB to the Camera? Not the Phantom, I don't like popping or messing with that small card.

    I've had the card miss the slot & go all the way in the camera. It's a pain to get it out. I hook up to the USB on camera, but it doesn't do anything

    Should show up on your PC as a removable drive, you have to have the Phantom on and nothing holding the gimbal.

    The east way is to put your USB from pc to the micro connector on the camera

    Correct, to get the pictures off the unit while the SD card is still in the unit. You must connect micro usb cable to gimbal base and to computer. Power up unit and it will populate on the computer.
