    I am new to all of this and was wondering if someone can tell me how much space will be used per minute of video. I am using a 32 GB card. I would like to film at the highest quality. How much space per minute would this use? I have 3 batteries for flight so I am wondering if I should purchase a 2nd card. I also have the original 4 GB that came with it. This is for the Phantom 2 Vision Plus V3.0. Thanks for any input.

    I usually shoot at 2.7K 24 or 48fps with ProTune on and each 10 minutes is about 3 gig or so.

    You may as well just get a 32GB (class 10!)card - they are stupidly cheap now really.
    it's a good idea to keep the supplied one in the case for the times you leave the bigger one plugged in you computer....

    Vision Plus video files have lowish bitrate and are not very large.
    You will find they download surprisingly quickly.
