was wondering what would be a good micro card for our unit?
I'm looking at these 3:

1. http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme-Memory-Speeds-Ready-SDSDQXP-064G-G46A/dp/B00NUB3530/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1424198439&sr=1-1&keywords=micro+extreme+pro

2. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/945286-REG/sandisk_sdsdqx_064g_a46a_64gb_extreme_micro_sdxc_uhs_1.html

3. http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Class-Adapter-MB-MG64DA-AM/dp/B00IVPU88U/ref=sr_1_10?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1424196891&sr=1-10&keywords=micro+extreme+pro

thanks in advance!

I'm using the Sandisk Extreme Plus (the second one you have listed). Anything  class 10- UHC 1 or faster will work just fine.. Essentially all of these cards will work perfectly as they all are able to write above 60mbps . Save the extra money for more batteries.

The only difference you would notice between the pro and plus would be you would save a few seconds offloading the video to your computer after filming (assuming you have usb 3.0. If you only have usb 2.0 it will make no difference)... Filming wise and photography wise all three cards will do the same thing. Many people like the samsung cards too.

I stick with Sandisk just because they have been doing memory cards since the beginning and I've never had an issue with them. Brand name is personal preference though.. These days half the cards are rebranded anyways.  Hope this helps.

I have a tip that is useful: doesn't matter how fast your card is, its best to fill it up, taking off footage from time to time until its full and then REFORMATTING the card. Piecemeal deletions of video gave me all sorts of failures when recording at 1080p, 50 fps on a GoPro3 using a 45 Mbps rated card. Apparently this is a known issue with GoPros and I don't know if this also applies to the Inspire but I'd suggest not taking chances with important footage. This doesn't apply to stills which have a far lower data transfer rate. Would appreciate other's experience here.

Here is another tip that might be useful.  I purchased several cards because on a recent trip, after shooting at locations several miles apart, I realized that if I had a fly away I would lose the footage from a previous location.  I place a new card in at each location.  One other thing, with the Phantom and a hard landing, I have had the card pop out into weeds never to be seen again.  I really wish there was a way to cover the card slot for security.

Yes I use this card also.

Haven't seen a faster card yet, but they are developing all the time.

Just noted that Lexar are now selling a 128GB card, which will be fantastic when DJI increase the battery performance and flight times.

I go the opposite from all above and get great results by using 8gb Class 10 Micro SDXC cards First, they are cheap and work GREAT. Second, they outlast a battery and when I land to change battery, I simply pop in the next card. I get these for around $11 each, so 8 cards are cheaper than a 64 and more useful to me.
Here's the real reason: I travel with a Surface Pro2 and am able to check my footage quickly for capture of my intended shots, so if I have to  revisit any, I'm aware before it's too late. Granted, I do not take alot of stills in RAW when I fly, but if a plan to do so, I use a 16gb card to accomodate the additional files.

No problem at all w/ usb adapter. I shoot in MP4 30 as a general rule and I'm able to pop the chip in and see quickly my video before taking off again and can reference the shots to "fill-in" the points/perspectives I may have missed on the first go-around. With over 90 flights so far, it's just the way I do things now as a habit.

Don't think it will support any cards over 64GB.

I recently used this Lexar 64GB card and the iOS App displayed a message indicating  slow card.  It would only record video up to 8seconds and no stills.  Changed a battery and it seemed to be fine although still had problems with recording still image.

I have now reformatted the card and will test again.  Also just purchased a Lexar 32GB High Performance Micro SDHC UHS-I U1 Card 300x - 45MB/s  that comes with an adapter, so will check this out when it arrives.  Got this 32Gb with the adapter so that I could use with a apple sd card reader and download photos and video straight on to the iPad.

I thought someone said that anything capable of recording over 60mb/s if you are using 4k would not be noticeably different. However, a faster card will move the large video files off the micro SD card faster if your PC can handle it.

I've been using second tier brands like Transcend and NMicro. (Rather than going for the SanDisk and Lexar) and have had no problems. The Transcend HC1-U3 (at 300x) 32GB card runs about $20 and has worked like a champ. The NMicro (clocking in at about the same as the Lexar) 32GB runs about $30.  Haven't had any issues at all and have twice as many cards as I would if I bought the more name brand versions.

Is the card that came with the Inspire insufficient ? Are these other, faster cards, really necessary ?  Of course besides the memory capacity.  Is the video recording, the pictures you take,  etc. better with these cards ?

I have 2 Sandisk 64GB Extreme  Pro cards that worked fine in my Phantom 3, but will not work in my Inspire 1.  I was told in another forum that there is an issue with 64gb cards with the inspire.  When I used the 64 gb cards, after 4 minutes of flying, I noticed the slider was switching back and forth from video to photo on the app.  The inspire 1 was unable to format the card.  Formatted both cards in PC fine, then put into Inspire and it formatted the cards, but same would happen after about 4 minutes again.

So I tried the 16gb card that came with the inspire and al is well.

How are you guys using 64gb cards?
