    Drones etc sent my bundle. Came with 32G SD card. When I put into P3 I get a warning "SD card slow" anyone know what that means?

    They may have not sent you a card that is actually compatible with the P3. Back when I bought my P2V+, it came from Drones Etc., and they sent me a 64 GB microSD. The V+ couldn't even accept a 64 GB card.

    Use the SD card that came in the P3 for now. It's only 16 GB, but it's compatible. Check the card that Drones etc. sent you. It should have a speed rating of 10 (indicated be the number 10 inside a circle on the card). If the number is lower than that, then they sent you a card that isn't sufficient for use in the P3.

    My 32 Gig SD card is rated 10, but it still says "Slow SD Card". Any advice?

    There are many spurious cards available in the market, better go for reputed makes only and check their class 10 or U1.

    Among many few of the reputed ones are: Samsung, Lexar, SanDisk, SP (Silicon Power)
