I just ordered a smart controller and I know it takes an SD card. Do I still need to use an SD card in my Mavic 2 also or does the controller SD card replace the card in the drone?

Yes you want an SD card in the drone, the SD card in the controller acts the same as the one in your phone.

And an SD card in your bag as back up when one or the other fails. It happens.

Yes it happens me recently on a different way, in my car with the deskcam, so I order a new dascam, but is was the sd-cart who was failing!!

I use the SD slot on the SC to off load files created and stored on the SC, mainly video and photo cache and flight logs, or to upload items.

I believe the best solution for flying and filming would be to keep the main SD card in the drone, both for photos and video as trying to transmit the huge amount of data for full res video and photos IMO would be very hard to maintain especially at distances and would also interfere with flight operations (possibly).
