What is the purpose of the onboard mini sd card for the X Star? Is it like a flight recorder?

Thanks!
 
Sorry, I should have clarified. I know the sd card on the camera gimbal does that, but what about the sd card slot on the actual drone body.
 
Oh ok, sorry about that. Are you talking about the USB port? I do not see an SD card slot on the body but there is a USB port which I don't think allows for customers to utilize for anything. It might be for factory or technical support use but I'm not sure.
 
ya theres no SD port on the actual drone body. There is a USB port though which has a purpose i do not know the answers too lol
 
Some fun information: there is a micro SD card inside the X-star pictured in this post.

As you suspected, amctr, this likely stores flight data which can be accessed/downloaded to a computer via the Micro USB port on the X-Star body. Not sure I'd ever bother trying to download this information but it could be useful to Autel, the FAA, or the curious :)

Autel did confirm with me that the USB Port on the body is for diagnostics purposes, primarily by Autel if the drone is having issues.
