    Folks, I need some advice. I'm trying to decide what size memory card to get for my new P3P. But I have no idea how big these 4k videos are.
    Can anyone give me a basic X size for Y minutes type example please?

    Thanks in advance!

    stilgar99, you can record about 2 minutes of 4k video per 1GB of memory. So, you might even need multiple memory cards depending on how many minutes of video you plan to capture.

    About 15mm by 11mm works well

    Buy the 64G Class 10 UHS3 - biggest and fastest! Nothing cheap for your drone!

    I have mine set to 4k and a 9 min video takes up about 4.5 GB
