    I have an SD card in the spark. But I have the app set to cache video to the phone as well.

    I notice that only about 50% of the time it will save video or photo to the phone as well.

    For example, my most recent flight list from today:

    Flight at the bottom I took 5 photos but it shows none. And none are in my phone anywhere.

    However the other 3 flights have correct number of photos and they are saved to my phone.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Its doing the same thing for video... Sometimes it saves and sometimes it doesn't.

    Its not a storage issue. I have 512gb of storage on the SD card in my phone.

    I have an Android device and the cached images I have are in the Gallery, under a folder titled Cache Image. Another one titled DJI Record.
    These were created by the App.

    The images are very poor and should not be used for viewing. It's best to download the pictures from the Spark.

    There's probably a similar folder(s) in the camera roll of Apple products.

    I don't think the flight records will reflect all of the footage per flight but random parts of it as a reference to a particular flight.
