[Bill Thomas] " I was trying to edit 1080p footage from our DJI Phantom 3, and it was REAL jerky! It would play for about 4 seconds, then stutter like heck. Not sure if it was the codec or what."

The DJI Phantom 3 records in H264. H264 is very CPU intensive and therefore most likely you'll run into playback issues. Convert that footage to an edit friendly codec like pro-res and your playback problems will go away.
