    Hi
    On Dji go app the flights log are between take off and landing? Or they start just when you press record?

    I ask this because yesterday I take off and land after 19min and had 3 flights....

    So how it works?
    What are the best way to read the txt and dat (from inside drone) logs?

    I am going to guess you hit record at takeoff and the phantom stops recording around 4 gig and starts a new file for another 4gig or so.
    that's a normal event (internal limit !?)and nothing to worry about.

    good luck and have fun flying!

    It's my understanding it will only start new log w/ lost 5.8 not the 2.4s. No need to transform dat into text healthy drone program will do it. Not sure why your getting an error unless your downloading the wrong file. U r downloading the flight log right?

    The flight logs you upload to HD comes from your mobile device.
    Look at this link:
    HealthyDrones.com - Innovative flight data analysis that matters

    Also look at Msingers
    Links:
    DJI Log Converter
    DJI Phantom Accessories & Tips - Phantom Help

    The flight logs on your mobile device will be split up when then signal is lost to your mobile device.

    If you are recording a video you shouldn't have to restart it. But there is a limit on the size of the video file, once the file is to large it start another video file automatically.

    Hum, Are you going to make look?
    Just kidding, don't know off the top of my head, but I know if you look at some posts that they have used Dashboard they are pretty impressive.

    And, you do know you can playback your logs in the app, and see your remote control movements?

    Share you links from HD, a lot more info than the picts.
    Also splitting of logs is normal, and what is actually the question on the other thread?

    The remote movements are on your play back screen, hidden like everything else on mobile devices.

    "ok, i understood now!
    the site you indicate i already knew but i saw no improvement over the HD...
    i am just trying to "read" the dat file because, on mobile app i have those 3 logs and on drone i have just one file
    i already extract kml file and it shows a continuous flight, but i would like to upload to HD... but i beginning to think its impossible!

    thanks

    best regards"

    Don't use the .dat file and forget Healthydrones.
    Go to http://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/Upload/
    Follow the instructions to upload your flight record from the txt file created by the app.
    It's much more useful and will show much more information.

    nice and simple...
    for me only problem is no European units...

    but the log here presents different values from the ones at HD... its more accurate showing the distance from home
