This question is for the pilots that use their drones for work.

How many SD cards do you carry on you?

Three, 128Gb, one a as spare and one when my customer wants the recorded card to bring with him/her direct after the flight when they are in a hurry and want to edit the still pics or video themselves. Yes, I get the card back later.. :)

I generally have just the one U3 class in the camera. On the odd occasion I will carry a spare if it's a bigger job and there is a risk of filling up the original card.

1 for each flight. After every flight I change the card. I do not want to loose shots from previous flights if something happens to my drone.

I would then need at least a minimum of 3 cards, as many as 8.

I don't do commercial stuff so I only take 2 cards. 1 in the craft (all flights), and another one in the bag in case I ever forget to put the first one back !

For each aircraft we carry a "wallet" that has 12 Micro SD card slots (6 on the left and 6 on the right) but only carry 6 cards in it. We replace the card with each battery swap and the "consumed" cards go on the empty side keeping them organized for each use.

Here's a sample of what we use:

I always have two - one in the bird, and one in the bag. If I get some, what I think is exceptional footage, at next battery change, I change the card also, just in case something happens to the H. (I fly over water a lot.)
