    okay so I am doing a aerial shoot for a client and I was wondering how I can get the photos and videos to be saved on my iPad. I can see them when I go to photos in the DJI app but is there a way to have them stored on my iPad? Thanks in advance

    Under Albums, select one of the photos and click share. Make sure "Save to Camera Roll" is toggled on.

    You have to manually select which media you want to copy over? No way of doing it automatically?

    It's a two step process. First you have to have the controller and P3 on. Send the photos and video over the wireless connection. This saves it to your Albums on the app. From there you can save it to your Camera Roll.

    I don't recommend doing it this way. I just pull the memory card out of the P3 and put it on my computer.

    On P3P Under "General Settings" set " Video Cache" to Recording . When recording videos, DJI Pilot will cache videos to the IPad. Use Director to modify or delete . Works for me ......

    Yea but resolution is 720p at best and gets noisy as signal strength decreases due to distance.

    No videos I have taken ever show up in Director, even when I wireless transfer them to the ipad, I can play them on the IPAD, but they don't show up in director. and a 15 second video takes 2 minutes or more to transfer, so not sure it would do me any good, I wouldn't mind having Director as another "tool" I could use for editing, but my other software is windows, so it probably slows workflow to much to try to use director.

    You can download them from craft to iPad with the craft powered on, but this takes a lonnnnng time tho, good for the ten ten thing tho with a new battery. It's full quality tho and does then show up in director.

    I don't like the director, 10 second clips and limited to the number of clips. Only good for a fast overview of the full video, like a trailer. But I like the trailers you can make in iMovie much better, looks very professional, although you have the same limits you have many more options.
