    I am experimenting with flight log analysis and I have two questions. First, I have gotten my .DAT files off of my P3A, what is the best way to view the data? Second, I notice that in cases where the P3A has been un-recoverable, flight data is available. I assume that data must be stored on the tablet. How can I view that data on a Nvidia Shield K1? Any recommendations for a file explorer/reader for android?

    Any advice will be very much appreciated.

    Best regards, Jim

    You can view them with DatCon.

    This is a good FileExplorer for Android

    /DJI/dji.pilot/FlightRecord are the directory you are looking for

    You can also use AirDroid to connect you computer to the smartphone.

    Thanks for your replies! I need one more thing. The FlightRecords are in a strange text file. Looks like gibberish, probably encrypted or something. How can I convert these .txt files to CSV files?

    Thank, Jim
