Hi there
Just ordered my mavic pro, can't wait to get my hands on it!
Is there a minimum writing speed i should consider for buying an sd card for it? What about capacity, I'm planing on getting an extra battery, what do you recommend?
Thanks!

Considering Lexar doesn't make cards anymore, Sandisk is your best bet as far as brands go. You want a class 10, U3. Size is up to you. I'd go with at least a 64gb personally. But you can get away with smaller ones.

Yep.. Sandisk extreme is the way forward , be sure to buy from a good retailer to avoid counterfeits

Thanks.

i'm considering using only two batteries, so recording in maximum definition and for, say, 15 min each, what capacity do I need for the 30 min recording expected?

Hi, we suggest using SD card with Class 10/UHS-1 and above and writing speed with 60Mbps. Please kindly choose original SD card from the SD card company, which can ensure the full test of its stability and compatibility.
And for the time of recording, here is an example for calculating the speed (reference only):
A 16 GB card, 4K/1080P 60fps - 60Mbps = 36mins
60 Mbit/s ÷ 8 × 60 = 450M Byte/min  16 GByte/450 MByte = 36 mins. Hope it helps. SD.png
