    Running app version 2.3 - looking for the option to format the SD card - I have looked and looked and can't find it any where - can someone point me to where it is hidden

    I appreciate the quick response but is this under the safe to fly button - if not what is the path to get there?

    Or you can always format the SD card in your computer too.
    It makes no difference whether you do it in the Phantom or computer.
