    Hi. Only flown the drone once. It flies excellently. No complaints at all except I cant get anything from the camera. I have inserted a brand new SD card (the right way) and tested the SD card in another camera. The card works fine.

    The drone transmitter screen recognizes the SD card. FPV/ Camera view on the screen is fine. The screen camera functions all work as per manual i.e: photo and video buttons, and video recorder timer on screen all working. Also when you operate photo and video buttons, a blue light on the base of the drone comes on and goes off in conjunction with on/off operation of the buttons, which I hoped meant that the camera was working. Since the drone’s one and only flight, I have tried many times indoors to get the camera to work to no avail. If anyone has any advice, I will be most grateful.

    How are you trying to play back images?

    Thanks for reply. SD card out of drone and into ordinary camera, then into laptop. I know the card is OK because I have taken pictures using it in the ordinary camera and then viewed them on the laptop no problem.

    Hmmmm sounds like a dead camera ,may have to send it back for replacement. The only other thing I can think of is that the card is incompatible. Is it a Class 10?

    Yes, logo at top of card packaging says "Speed up to 98MB/s**" with a 10 in a circle at the top i.e: (10). I take it that means it is a class 10 card?
    I think you are right that the camera may be dead.

    FWIW it's not unusual for some devices to be a bit picky.
    What brand and how many gigs?
