    Took the P3A out for some more flights today. First flight recorded fine. Then, I changed the battery and started a second flight. I pressed record, and I got about 30 seconds of video saved on the bird. The rest of the flight did not record, and I didn't stop the recording, myself. The cached video on my tablet is the same length with the majority of the flight missing.

    Any ideas? The only thing I can think of is that my finger hit the "record" button on the RC by accident. But, I'm 99% sure I didn't do that. I guess there's always that 1% chance that I did, though. LOL.

    I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this happen due to anything other than user error.

    Cheers.

    Did your SD card fill up? Or did you turn off the bird before ending the video?

    Ooo...I might have done the latter.

    If so, put the SD back and turn on the bird. Doing so should restore the video file.
