    I keep only getting about 10-15 seconds of choppy video before it just stops recording. I just got the P3A about a week ago (WOOT DJI SALE!!), and it has recorded great thus far, until yesterday. I guess I could try a different card, just dont feel like buying another one just to test.
    Has anyone experienced any video issues? I though maybe it was the cold, but the other day was colder and it recorded for 10 minutes outside. Now, only 5 or 10 seconds and stops.

    Are you using the card that came with it?
    It's almost certainly SD card related, be sure to format the card in the camera using the app before you start.
    The symptoms are classic for your card not being able to write fast enoug.
    If you get another it needs to be class 10 UHS-1 and write speed at least 40mb/s
