    What's the best micro sd card to use?

    I do mainly still shots and I have notice that when I take more then 3 pictures at the same time or a HDR shot from the p3a it takes a few min to save to my card and I am not able to see my fpv on the iPad for a few sec I am using the lexar 633 class 10 64gb.

    Please help :)

    The Phantom 3 is hardware limited to write at a max of 7.5MB/s, so any Class 10 card that writes at least that fast will work the same with regards to writing multiple exposures. A faster card would normally have a fast read speed as well which would help with transferring from the card, but not with writing to the card due to the hardware limit.

    omerk, the Lexar 633 is a good memory good. I don't think you're going to see better performance by using a different memory card.
