    I know on the dji website it says the mavic's max SD card size is 64GB but I'm curious if a 128GB card will still work, has anybody tried it?

    It should work. That spec is the same for Phantoms -- and, some people are even using 256GB memory cards.

    I am using the Samsung EVO 128 with no problems. Although I have not filled it up yet, it seems to be working perfectly fine.

    I also have a Samsung EVO 128 GB and it seems to work fine.... but the internal DJI app "SD card format" fails. (So formatted ExFat on my laptop.)

    I just formatted my 128GB Samsung micro-sd directly in my Mavic with no issues. My MAC reports 128.55 GB available space.

    I tried using a 128 sandisk pro and it failed to capture video. Have tried it twice anyone else experience this?

    This is a good discussion. I've only tried a 64gb.

    You guys should use 32 gig card for 4K.
    64 gig card will give you 144 minutes if you record continuously for 144 minutes in 4K. That's 6-7 batteries.
    Having more cards is better. Nothing worse then losing your drone with 2 weeks of unbacked up footage. And nothing worse then hiking 4hrs in and forgetting your card in the PC.

    i know for the videos on the mavic to turn out right you need a good sd card that writes the data fast enough...can someone please link me a good 64 GB sd card from amazon that will work well with the mavic when it comes to speed? A 32 GB would also work and maybe be better for me, thanks in advance.

    Just because it is possible ..... a 200 GB SanDisk Ultra works and formats fine ..... but the DJI Go app complains that the SD card formatting is recommended. :-(

    I think I read somewhere that the card needs to have a minimum write speed of 40????

    The memory cards that DJI ships usually have a 40MB/s write speed. For that reason, I like to use a memory card that equals or exceeds that spec.
