Just make sure you get one with enough space to store enough images and a transfer speed that writes fast enough.

Some people buy cards based on write speed and whatever else.

I tend to buy cards based on cost (whatever's relatively cheap). Never really had an issue with them.

Any camera is "good enough" to shoot aircraft. It depends on what you want to get out of it. If you want to upload to A.net, then the T6 is plenty good enough.

Couldn't agree more! I try to limit the risk of card failure by not buying very large capacity cards (I limit it to 64 GB). In the event I have a card failure, my losses would be potentially limited to the content of the 1 card. My body has 2 card slots and most times I have 2 32GB cards in them. I also do not reuse my cards; instead I use them as an additional back-up storage. I also shoot JPEG which consumes a lot less space than RAW. I only shoot RAW if I am doing low/no light photography.
