    For a 5k dragon you should be somewhere between 5:1 and 10:1 compression for optimal quality. You can go higher, but it will make your footage noisier and will make color correcting more difficult.

    What size cards do you have?

    7:1 & 8:1 are really enough on Dragon 5k sensor. I have 2x 120gb cards, and I never had any issues on card space.

    13:1 like on the above video and you will loose sharpness.

    I think I found a mistake on the Red Data Rate calculator. But would be nice if the Dragon-X can do that kind of magic.
