SD cards can survive a lot...

Apparently they can even survived being swallowed and passed through a digestive system with the contents still recoverable...

The sad part of this is that the company and the guy don't realize how vulnerable they are if their workflow commits a days work to a single micro sd card. You're asking for trouble if you are a professional and you aren't swapping cards or bashing up during the day...

When I fly my drone, and I am getting footage that was hard to get in the first place....

https://vimeo.com/laurenoe

I always take the card out and put another one in.
There is nothing worse than losing an entire day's work if the drone is lost.
With every flight on location, the "cost" of that footage gets higher and higher.
No way I would put EVERYTHING on a single SD card.

Exactly. This was just very poor planning - the outcome was funny but that's not the way you do things.
Rookie mistake...

I particularly like this video which does a rather tongue-in-cheek assessment of SD card resiliency....
