I played around with cache settings now I only get videos on my phone but not photos. They show up fine on the drone's SD card, just not on phone. Can someone tell me how to get this setting back?

Did you.. Download Original Photo..while your bird was still powered on ?
If you didn't they will not show up in your device or in a IOS one anyway .
With mine I can see my pictures with the bird onIMG_1380.PNG .
But If I want it to save to my device I click on the picture and this box is there to save it to my deviceIMG_1381.PNG .The picture would be showing in that and box hard to see .

I don't know, they used to show up in the phone automatically, sometimes later in the day. But maybe I was looking at photos while the bird was still on and it automatically does it during this process. I am sorry, I am new to this and not too technologically savvy.

Hmm. I'm sure that I get photos on my phone before downloading them. When I click on the photo I get the option to download original, that can only be done when the drone is on.

Using iOS as well.

It doesn't save straight to your Camera Roll. You have to manually add it to the Camera Roll from the app. You can save the non original photo to your camera roll without downloading it from the MP.

Is it possible that the photos are stored to a different folder than the videos?

I don't know it might and will look in a bit .I know my videos are stored in my app unless I edit a movie in app then complete and it saves in my device photos but the pictures don't even save in the app unless I download the original . I might have some setting off or something if you guy's devices saves em .
To be honest I dump my card into my Mac every time I come in and reformat the first flight I do the next day and never save the pictures to my device unless I am going to message someone with them right after I come down from flying .

Sometimes I get 2 versions of each photo, one with proper resolution and one that looks more like a thumbnail w bad resolution. I just cant figure out how to control this. Sometimes (on phone) I get video and no photos, sometimes 2 sets of photos, etc....
