    Ive had my P3 for 2 weeks and 20 flights. Today my Sd card would not lock in place. I tried other SD cards
    thinking it might be the cad. but there all the same.
    Is anyone having this issue ?
    Im taking mine to DJI LA office tomorrow !

    Nothing here, do you think something got blown into the slot when landing or launching?

    No I don't think any dust or anything. I'm very carful taking of and landing around any dirt.
    But you never know. I think it's mechanical !
    I did hear of another p3 pilot having the same issue. I'll talk to DJI tomorrow.
    Thanks

    Had this happen on my vision 2plus. No luck. Sent the camera into DJI. Said maybe 6 week turn around. At least I have my P3 to use.

    I had the exact same issue w/ P3A. Luckily it happened within the 7 day return. So they refunded me.

    This is a known issue at DJI, and they mentioned it in the letter they posted about upcoming changes, I think the only fix is to send it in for repair.

    I took two wire zip ties and zip tied it into place. True I must now download using a usb cable but I don't have that problem anymore. - Jeff

    I got lost. I've always removed my SD card and used a card reader to get the data into my PC. If you have the SD card zip-tied into place and the other USB port (in the front, near the logo) is only to obtain one of those infamous .DAT files, where do you plug a USB cable?

    There is a micoUSB port on the silver gimble area. It is on the opposite side of the SDcard port. Plug it in here and it comes up like any USB device. NOTE: I can't remember off the top of my head if you have to have your battery turned on.

    Been so long since I had done that - I had forgotten all about that other port.
