Hi there
New to FPV but not to DJI
Yet I cannot figure out how to retrieve the flight logs from the FPV back to my computer so I can analyse my flights, and the mistakes I make.
I get them to download from the FPV & googles to the phone, but they don't seem to be actually stored on the phone after a download (Iphone is a bit tricky to find files)

The only way is to use Airdata at this point.

why?

you can view your flight in the DJI Fly app... just click on it after downloading.

I do think airdata is useful, as has a bit more info - but you can see flight path and stick movements in fly app, so its still pretty handy

unfortunately what we dont have anywhere (including air data) is to see the full details from drone logs - e.g. things like motor speeds, gyro... that data is encrypted, and only available it seems to dji for warranty claims

Yes, but I like to plot the flight onto Google Earth to overlap with personal maps and points of interests as well as use a bigger screen than my phone.
I wish we could download a .txt and use Phantomhelp.com to review the data.

How do you get info into Airdata normally the app will send to Airdata when you start UAV. I have had no transfers to my Airdata account while using FPV. WIh my Anafi I upload the .json file. Is there a file in DJI FLy that you need to upload.

there are two ways


a) Airdata sync mobile app
sorry can't remember what is called.. but look for the airdata app, and you'll find it
note: its a separate app

then
use dji fly to sync logs to phone
use airdata sync, to upload to airdata

honestly, I didnt like this approach much, seemed very slow.


b) link airdata to your dji account
go to your account settings in airdata, and you'll find an option to sync to dji servers with your dji login info - fill this in

then:
use dji fly to sync logs ( make sure you have option to sync to cloud turned on)
airdata will automatically sync once a day, or you can go to same settings page - and force a sync now.

Nothing above mentioned assistant, and there's nothing you can do with the files you get out of it.

How can this work since the Fly App is not used with the DJI FPV?

So the log files stored on FPV drone are not useable in Airdata? I tried to upload one and it exceeded the limit. I will try setting up sync via DJI servers, my Inspire2 and Mini 2 automatically send to Airdata.

not true... it can be used (optionally!)

the dji fly app can connect to the dji fpv, and as i mentioned transfer flight logs from goggles and drone. (inside profile)
also the fly app can be used to view the camera feed from the dji fpv.

what it cannot do (currently?!) is control the drone, and its does not show the OSD data from the goggles only the raw googles camera feed.

I just checked my Airdata account and the first two flights on 4/26 have been uploaded last ones from yesterday did not. Assuming operator error.

I agree with what you noted on DJI FLy I made a chest mounted phone so I can see without looking through the goggles old habits are hard to break . Going out to try again and see I can get video on drone recorded.

It is, it just doesn't show any kind of compatibility on the home screen until actually plugged to the goggles, and log transfer/FW update and live view mirror is all it can do with that aircraft.

Airdata functions normally now. The last FPV flight does not upload automatically until I start another flight.
Whatever, it works.
