    I dont mean to beat this to death, but i recorded 4 video files of 30 seconds on my P3A at 2.7K and tested the recording bit rate, which has a direct effect on video quality. DJI claims 40Mbps, but i can not get more than 20 and i've tested them on more than one app. Anybody else notice this? maybe have a look.Included are the results

    Isn't that spec the max bit rate? What bit rate are you showing for 1080p/30?

    Bitrate for 2.7K is 40Mbps advertised, or close to it, 20's not close enough

    Could it be an SD Card write speed limitation?

    Sorry... I don't record at 2.7k.
    What does your 1080p@60fps run at?
    Whats your firmware? I was told that the newer 1.5 onwards allow 60mbs write speeds on P3A 1080p 60fps.
