    Hello to all,
    I have been flying my Phantom and loving it. I have made several videos, but when I try to view them, most of the time I get an error message. I pull out the microchip and wipe it, and sometimes I can recover the file. I currently have a couple of messages that I have not been able to recover. I noticed that I do not end recording on the phone when I'm done. Could this be the problem, or could the microchip be bad, I put in a 32g when I got the Quad.

    You should always end the recording before you power off the Phantom and never remove the card while the Phantom is powered on.
    If you don't end the recording, the file will be corrupted.
    You can fix it but putting the card back in the camera and powering on the Phantom again and then back off.
