    Hey all,

    So all of a sudden I am having issues with the camera on my Phantom 2 Vision +. It will safely save images onto my 16GB SD card. However, videos are not saved. Here are a few notes:

    -There is plenty of space on the card.
    -It used to work fine. However, all of a sudden it won't save video.
    -I have taken the SD card out of the Phantom and tried the card directly in my laptop, through a GoPro, etc. Once again, images are fine but no video.

    Here are the steps I take when flying and powering down:
    -After calibration and initial take off, I use the app to start recording an see a blinking recording light.
    -Once done recording, I hit the camera button again to stop the recording. A couple minutes later I land.
    -Once on ground safely with motors off, I power down the Phantom, then power down remote and range extended.

    Any ideas on what's going on? Much appreciated!
