Any views on the best way to download photos/videos to your computer.  I currently take the SD card out and use a card reader. It seems much faster than downloading with a USB cable to the Spark...BUT I occassionally forget to put the SD card back in the drone!!   Chrishall Church looking particularly good tonite.

I do like you do...my PC has SD slots so I put the card in an adapter, then into the PC slot.  Download is fast and pure.

Connnect Spark with USB cable to Laptop or PC.
Start Spark.
Cut and paste to applicable folder for post production.

No need to remove SD card from AC.

But this method is so slow.

I suppose it depends on the  laptop/Desktop and OS you have and the size and speed of the SD card.
Got the routine that after the last flight of the day I download the photos and videos to my laptop and then the SD card is ready for the next time I use the AC. SD card size 32G.

Good idea.  I have a state of the art Dell computer and 32GB SD Card.  Downloading directly from the card is instantaneous downloading through the USB cable seems to take for ever!

No state of the art on this side.
Will do some timing test next time for interest sake.

My reasoning  is that the SD card is small and the less I handle it (remove/insert) in the AC the better. Also less wear and tear to the AC and it is then always where it should be..in the AC

Really Nice Picture ! Yes the best / fastest way I use is taking out the SD Card and use it in a Card Reader.
