    Just a quick note, if you forget to stop recording BEFORE you shut down the main Phantom battery, the camera won't properly close out (or whatever it does) the last file you recorded. If you're like me and you remove the SD card to download your videos, you will find that the last file can't be opened. Don't worry, it's still there!

    Just put the SD card back in the Phantom, then power up the bird and your WiFI camera control. When everything is connected, just take one single picture, then power everything down. When you put the SD card back in your computer, the files are all available to download.

    Due to space on my desk, it's way easier to pull the SD card then it is to plug in the camera.
