    I just bought a few 16 GB memory cards (SanDisk Extreme U10, C3 - SDSQXNE-016G) for $5 a piece on Amazon. I saw them selling for $10 before. I plan to use a new card for each flight when I'm away from home.

    16GB is really too small.

    Last year I purchased:
    PNY Elite 64GB Microsdxc Card -UHS-I, U1 for $18
    Worked great in my Yuneec Q5004K

    And they are still about $18

    16GB will be just fine since the OP is going to switch the memory card on every flight. If shooting 4K video, it'll hold about 30 minutes of video. And, for photos, it'll hold many more than the OP will be able to take in a single flight.

    You get a big size on eBay cheap, always make sure they are class10.

    $4.99 is a great deal. How many of these puppies did you buy?

    How is that similar? Can't you read the specs? The Ultra card is useless for 4k video recording.

    Unfortunately, despite being a class 10 card, a lot of people have had problems with the Ultra line of cards when it comes to recording in 4k. Seems like Extreme/Extreme PLUS is the way to go in this case. Appreciate it though.

    It's not me with the problem reading.. To quote the DJI Mavic requirements found here: Mavic – Specs, FAQ, Tutorials and Downloads Maybe DJI got it wrong eh.

    I use the same card for 4k video with an action cam and don't have any issues, but whatever.

    Mavic Pro specs say that can record a 4k video and according to San Disk, you need at least the Extreme edition for a realtime 4k recording. Which part of this sentence is not clear to you? Instead of trying to offend people you should use your brain.

    LOL! Right, let's rewind here, I shall resist this overwhelming desire I have to tell you go **** yourself..

    I posted a link to a memory card that, on the surface, appeared to fulfil DJI's spec for memory cards for the Mavic. I did this in a attempt to be helpful, to be part of this community, no other reason.

    So instead of you looking at the card and explaining in a civilised manner that the card isn't suitable for whatever reason that may be, you choose a one liner and stated the blatantly obvious even to me, "this is not the same card". What you didn't say was that card won't work because, etc. etc. as Rsxtacee did. Had you done that, we would still be the best of buddies!

    So if I offended you, I think that you're pretty easily offended which, judging by your manner, surprises me because you must have had a lot worse than I've sent your way.

    Lesson learned, over and out. :)
