    I shot 30 clips with a P3P for a client. 14 of the 4K mp4s were on the SD card and the other 16 were in 720 only on my Android device. The SD card seems to be fine. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Did you switch off recording properly?
    Unless you switch off recording before you power down the Phantom, the video file will not be closed off properly.

    How big is your card? 14 files at 4k might be pushing 64gig.

    It's a 32 but would I get a message from the Go that the card is full? btw - all short clips.

    Far as I remember it stores 4k on card and on android device at 720. One can transfer the vids in 4k in the app to the device whilst connected to the P3P. So is my understanding. Reality is, tough to immediately give a person a 4k vid on the spot without extra 'gear' even worse with apples 'pads'.
    With clients, use extra gear. Mob computer, usb card reader, wifi transfer, have team viewer ready for a reliable workaround.
