One think I do NOT like about my AIR2S is that with my Mavic, takeoff auto starts the camera recording and landing auto turns it off, BUT with the AIR2S no such luxury, I have to start and stop manually and it’s an enormous PIA causing some corrupted files.
Does anybody know if there is a way to make it behave like the Mavic?
If you do turn off your mini 2 before stopping the recording, all that has happened is that the app has been unable to finalise the file, it’s not actually corrupt. All you have to do is turn the mini 2 back on and hit record (no need to be in flight). The app will finalise the previous file before it starts a new recording.
Thank you for that I usually don’t realise what I’ve done until everything is packed away and app closed and memory card in the computer. Will this work under those circumstances or just if you realise straight away?
I’ve done that too. I’ve found out about the last video file when I’m downloading, so I turn the drone back on, usually on my desk lol and pop the card back in, hit record for a few seconds. Then stop recording and pop the card back in to your card reader, you should find all files have been finalised.
I discovered this when filming a wedding on one of my GH5’s. Battery went suddenly while recording.
Thanks, John - lifesaver! Was at my sister-in-law’s wedding yesterday and there was a shot she’d asked me to get. Was in a hurry (and cold) so forgot to stop the recording, so got home today to find the file was corrupt. Panic over.
Hey Chris. I am, thanks. Spent a few months immersed in (finally) finishing off a degree… which was immediately followed by a bit of a health scare. Nothing they couldn’t eventually sort with a daily fistful of pharmaceuticals, but it all meant I’ve not really been out flying and have just been the occasional lurker here feeling sorry for myself as the competitions came and went. But the batteries I used yesterday are back in the charger today, so things are looking up
