Kingston microSD cards for drones

Choosing microSD Cards for Your Drone Adventures

Commercial and recreational drones are a relatively new phenomena. It was introduced in 2010 when French company Parrot lofted its AR Drone. Since then the drone market has exploded. According to the Federal Aviation Administration1, the U.S. alone is home to over a million registered drones of which a large number are for commercial purposes and an even larger number for recreational use.

There are many different types of drones for every level of experience, whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or a professional photographer.

Most drones are equipped with limited internal storage which is a major drawback if you’re shooting 4K video or hoping to snap off a string of landscape photos during your flight. Don’t worry because many of them offer a solution: a microSD slot.

How many microSD cards do you need?

It really depends on your use case. If you’re a professional photographer, you most likely already carry four to five high-capacity and high-performance microSD cards. If you’re an intermediate photographer, several mid-sized microSD cards in 64GB should work well. If you’re an amateur hobbyist or just taking casual snapshots, then a couple of 32GB-sized microSD cards are more than enough.
