I looked around the documentation and couldn't find out what the Max SD card size is, I probably missed it somewhere. Anyone know?
I would be surprised if it supports a 1TB card, does it work ok with a 250GB or smaller card?Hi all, new here, Skydio 2 owner (ordered within the first 10 minutes of availability and received last week - lucky man I know, and so far, other than the issues below, I’d say it’s amazing).
I bought a 1TB SanDisk Extreme card for it so I wouldn’t have to archive so often (same type as the 128GB that comes in the Pro Kit - 160MB throughput, UHS class 3, etc.) but think I may be experiencing some issues with it so the size might be an issue - the drone seems to recognize the card and I’ve successfully recorded a few flight videos but sometimes the Media screen in the app will not finish syncing (gets stuck), and sometimes I’m getting v17: Camera Issue or V71: SD Media Issue errors at the Calibration stage at drone startup, which I can eventually get rid of through repeated restarts, and I’m wondering if it’s choking on the size of the card trying to reindex every time I start up or something. I’ve sent a report to support on it just this morning so it may be unrelated or a software bug in the first release but FYI.
Well, apparently my issues with various issues and faults are not caused by the 1TB card, I’m still getting the same faults, battery life and other issues with a new 128GB card I bought, so other problems notwithstanding (which I’m hoping will be remedied but waiting on support response), I’m calling the 1TB card supported.I would be surprised if it supports a 1TB card, does it work ok with a 250GB or smaller card?
I always format the SD in the device that will be doing the recording, in this case the SD2. Theoretically any device with the proper capability should be able to do it but there's been compatibility issues with other SD devices and it was recommended in those situations to use the recording device to format the card. I've used the mac to delete the videos on the card and re-used it with no issues or reduced capacity so that works also.What is the best method to format the memoery card using a MAC?
Try it and see? worst case scenario is S2 tells you it doesn't recognize the 256G card.I have six 256G cards that I carry for the H8B and it'd be nice to be able to use the same cards in both
I decided to stick with the 128G cards in the drone, 256G holds allot of video even at 4K. Since I plan to use this on MC trips where I won't have the option of saving it off to a computer I'd hate to risk that much video to one SD card. If I lost it or damaged the card I'd be out 2 days video. A 128G card lasts me 5 [email protected] 4K which is how many batteries I have, I'll carry a separate 128G card for each day.Try it and see? worst case scenario is S2 tells you it doesn't recognize the 256G card.
You have nothing to lose and a world of experiential knowledge to gain. Try it and let us know if the 256G card works.
So little tip, I picked one of these as cheap backup solution:I'll give it a try, for the betterment of mankind.
