    I can look at my video on my Ipad Mini2 without anything hooked up. Is the video stored on the device or the sd card? If it's the device, then I would think that the more memory on the Ipad, the better. I thought that all video would be on the card, but I kind of like it on the Ipad, never have to fool around with anything else to see my FPV flight.

    It's stored on both, if you have video caching enabled "Cache locally when recording" within the Pilot app.

    Full resolution video is only stored on the card that is in the Phantom though.

    The cache is what's used to edit short video using the Director app within the Pilot App. I also found that if the video you are seeing on your tablet, an iPad for me, it is saved in the cache so when you try to use that cache in Director, it will show up there as well. Lower quality video, but nice if it is clean and you want to post a short video online for folks.
