So I was in an incredible location that I will never again visit and I messed up, bigtime. It appears I managed to accidentally press the record button a second time, stopping the recording, and missing all the best footage (which looked incredible in the live feed on my phone). I haven't touched the drone since, so I was wondering if there's any chance it might still be saved on the drone's internal memory, or my phone, or the drone's microSD card, as some sort of temporary file that might be recoverable through some techno wizardry? Any help would be hugely appreciated!

If you stopped the recording, then nothing was recorded after that point.

It should be a function of Go4, that it records automatically on TO, unless you decide NOT to! (Like Litchi has?) IMO!

Sadly, no, it's gone. Most of us have done this - I have done this; or taken a single photo instead of video, etc. Now I always look at the time counter under the start/stop button to verify it is counting up.
