Skydio X2E comes with two memory cards preinstalled, one for storing media and one for recording logs. Each card will occasionally need to be cleared of data and reformatted.

[warning] Do not alter the drone's SD media card folder structure or power on the drone without the media card inserted. Doing so may result in deleted media. [/warning]
