    I just shot 16 minutes worth of video but when I get home I only have 1:30 mins on my phone. This has happened before. Does anyone know why? Help please?

    You have 2 issues:

    - In the P3:
    If the missing video is the end of your flight, maybe you didn't stopped the recording before turning off the bird. You can restore the unfinished video by putting the card back in the bird and powering it, it will close and finalise any unfinished video found on the card.

    -On the tablet:
    Maybe it is not enough powerful to cache all the video. Recording the live 720p video on the tablet requires a good tablet and it become worst when temperature is high. I personally don't enable recording on tab as I have a tablet not enough powerful and want to focus on keeping flight control capability at the best.

    keep in mind the REAL video is on the sd card NOT in the phone.
    if you are only viewing/using phone video you are missing almost all the high def on the videos

    yes phone only supports 720, transfer the files from your SD card to your pc for max resolution and editing potential
