This post talks about the best SD card for DJI Avata, shows you what SD cards are compatible with, and provides you with a list of DJI’s recommended microSD cards. If you are in a hurry, here are our picks:
- 32GB:SanDisk Extreme U3 V30 A1
- 64GB: Kingston Canvas Go!Plus U3 V30 A2
- 128GB: Kingston Canvas React Plus U3 V90 A1
- 256GB: Samsung PRO Plus V30 U3 V30 A2
The DJI Avata is probably the perfect drone for beginner FPV flying, it is also capable of 4K@60fps videos. Though it comes with 20GB of internal storage, the DJI Avata can only hold 25-min long 4k videos, you may still need more space for videos.
DJI Avata SD Card Requirement
According to DJI’s website, the drone requires MicroSD cards with a capacity of up to 256 GB. Since it can record 4k videos, those that have a writing speed of lower than 30 MB/s are definitely not compatible, if you use a card like that, you may get data loss, broken files, or other incompatible errors.
It recommends following the DJI Mini 3 Pro’s standard: UHS-I Speed Class 3 or above is required. If you don’t know what UHS-I standard means, just use microSD cards that have a writing speed of 30 MB/s or above.
Best SD Card for DJI Avata: Tested by DJI
According to DJI’s official website, the following microSD cards are tested to be compatible with the DJI Avata, if you don’t have any SD card that meets the requirement, it’s recommended to choose from this list.
How many SD cards do you need for DJI Avata?
As the DJI Avata comes with 20GB storage, one SD card may be enough for pilots that don’t fly too often or only shoot videos occasionally. It’s recommended to prepare TWO which makes you always have a backup.
What size microSD card should I choose?
You can choose SD cards ranging from 32GB to 256GB. Again, it really depends on you. As mentioned above, the drone’s onboard 20GB storage would provide 25 minutes of 4k video recording. If you don’t know which size to choose, I can tell you that 64GB is most people’s choice.
What is the DJI Avata file system?
Is there any video quality difference between recording on the DJI Goggles 2 and on the DJI Avata?
Yes. The quality of video recorded in the drone is better than that shot in the DJI Goggles 2. You can choose up to 4k@60fps video recording using the drone while the Goggles 2 can record its screen with up to 1080p@50fps videos.
Should I insert an SD card on the DJI Goggles 2 or on the DJI Avata drone or on both?
Apparently, you can’t just place an SD card on the DJI Goggles 2 in case the onboard 20GB is enough for you. If you only have one microSD card for your DJI Avata, then the drone’s SD card slot is where it goes.
Whether you want to place another one on the Goggles 2 really depends on your needs.
