    Got my p3 pro over the weekend and the first video recorded just fine. But now it has a pretty delayed reaction to start recording, and will record for a small amount of time and just stop on its own. First thing I thought of was...maybe space has become full on the iPad for live recording so it keeps stopping and not wanting to start. I don't want the iPad to record, just the sd card. So if that's the case I want to turn that feature off but I can't find how. Any suggestions or known fixes anyone?

    Settings, bottom 3 dots, scroll down to video cache and disable it. But that shouldn't have anything to do with it not recording to your SD card.

    It records to the sd card but only like 8-10 seconds at a time. My dad had the same problem with his advanced with he first got it and told me problem "went away" after a while but I can't live with that explanation

    Did you change the SD card perhaps? I tried a SanDisk 64GB Ultra and it was terrible. Recording would drop out - sometimes couldn't start video - sometimes couldn't stop it. Turns out it can't deal with the speeds we need with our drones. I put my 32GB SanDisk Extreme Plus back in and recording worked perfectly again.

    Just a thought ...

    Did you format the card from within the GO app?
