Hi,I understand I can place the SD card on the googles or on the drone or even on both.

Is there any video or picture quality difference if recording on the goggles vs. on the drone?
I understand its better to record on goggles in case I lost the drone, but the video or picture quality should be the same? I remember I saw a review that stated that the quality should be better to record on the drone, but I didn't find any further information regarding this.

As MCWH7 points out, the quality of video in the drone recorder with be better than in the goggles.
The goggles recording is mainly as backup incase you need to find your drone later. The video in the goggles occasionally degrades as it pass behind objects.  These periods of poor video quality will be captured in the goggle recording but not in the drone's recording.
You can also record at high resolution in the drone. If you want to watch the same thing you saw while flying use the goggle recording. If you want to watch the best video, use the drone recording.
I generally always use both.

Hello there amitgv1. Good day and thank you for these information you have given. As posted above the footage on the DJI FPV drone will have a higher quality. In addition it is best to use a supported SD card on your DJI FPV for compatibility and reliability purposes. Thank you.

If you have an SD card in both the drone and Goggles, does the video sync? as in the video stored on the drones SD card will be the same as what you see from the goggles and stored on the goggle SD card correct? ofcourse as others have mentioned above, the quality of video from the drive SD card would be better. Thanks for the help, just got mine today

So, I too wondered about this. I'm guessing based on the above posts that when you hit record on either the controller or on the goggles that the recordings will take place simultaneously on both the goggles and the controller. Also that the recording on the drone will be better because it doesn't have to get sent back to the controller before recording. So, if you were to lose video signal from the drone to the goggles you would also lose the video recording in the goggles (because there was no signal to record), but you would have that recording on the Micro SD card in the drone. The reason that you want to record from the goggles is so if you lose the drone, you can review the last video signal you received, and hopefully you still had video signal when the drone went down. The reason you want to record from the drone is because if you lose the video signal to the goggles you'll still be recording from the drone. Do I have that right?
What about the quality of the video, is that also better coming when recorded from the drone?
These drones are awesome, I live (most of the time) in the California desert where flight is for the most past unobstructed.
Thanks for any reply...
