    I am becoming obsessed with these things!!!
    Is there a way to see what flight history on my second hand drone? On a camera you can check shutter activations is there an equivalent? Battery cycles perhaps? What is high / low?

    Hoping you can help!

    Hum, not sure what you are asking, in the DJI app, you can play back your flight logs, you can also look at your battery status, but everything has to be powered on / connected. Pictures from the camera, settings of the picture itself is stored on the picture.

    OK, the birds card, only has a few flights like maybe ten, kind of like the black box on a car, the last few if you were to crash, very large files.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys. Probably battery cycles will be my best clue then.

    Hum, battery cycles is saved on the battery, look at that with battery in the phantom, with the app.

    Thanks, my batteries have only been charged 2 & 5 times respectively. However the "history" has a great many more entries all read normal. So which is right? Have they been used dozens of times as per the history or just a couple of times?

    Probably a dozen short flights resulting in a few charges.

    Ok that's got it! Press and hold the power button is the quick method.
