  • It’s not recommended to fly with only one sd card. You never know what would happen after you get your drone up in the air. If it flies away or crashes, you may lose everything. But if you have 2 or more sd cards, you can change the sd card when you change the battery.
  • Sometimes you may just forget to insert the sd card back, or the only-one sd card fails, you don’t have any backup.
  • If you think 128G sd cards are not enough, then you can consider 256G ones
