Did a 2 km loop over the forest with the mavic, circling a small pond and back and didn't record any of it. I guess it was a practice flight! But at least I snapped one photo

It would be nice if DJI added an auto-record feature. (Litchi has this)

it might as well really! i TRY to record from take off thinking if i crash or something it would help with troubleshooting. That and the extra footage helps piece together shots i wanted to capture

Hate it when it happens.

I agree. I almost always record, even if I don't expect to use the video.

Could have been worse. I have flown through a whole battery while recording only to see that I didn't have a card in. We all do stupid things.

Wow, I hope it was more of a practice run for you. Of course, if you are in a more populated area, it is always easy to pick up an SD card.

I once was successful on launching from front yard while deer was in my back yard without spooking them and as I was excited as I watched my monitor that the deer was acting curious and not running off for about 5-6 minutes only to find later that I didn't hit the record button. I felt really stupid but since then I do as others here have mentioned and record all the time now and sort it out later.

They clearly *can* do it. I'm sure it's easy enough.  Come-on, DJI!

It happened to me only once - missed a beautiful spot - dried lake. But auto record is also not a perfect option as DJI has (in Mavic at least) focusing problem - what I found out is that camera refocus when not filming and if filming it refuse to refocus - so starting filming from takeoff ruined several nice flights with near focus on grass during start and misfocus half of flight

I have wondered about this! i recently filmed a 500 meter area before increasing alt and getting better view of an area beyond my line of sight (wind warnings and low batt, i was too chicken to go closer). turned out I framed that area quite nicely but it was not in focus.  If i am aware that i am greatly changing depth of view i will press the screen again for focus. A bit of blur on my phone display isn't so noticeable in the moment, on a sunny day
