    1. Does the flight log captured by 3rd party apps like Litchi and Autopilot similar to DJI flight log?
    2. Will I be able to use these log to investigate fly away or crash?
    3. Will DJI accept these log for warranty claim?
    4. Is there anyway to convert 3rd party flight log to DJI log?

    Yes.

    Yes.

    No. However, they could use the DAT flight log stored on the Phantom's internal memory card.

    No.

    To understand answers clearly, you should know that Apps create logs on your tablets/ phones whereas AC continuously generates logs for each flight on AC itself. DJI use AC logs and not the app logs.

    in order to gather info correctly, apps use DJI logging mechanism to generate logs so that they can be read by log analyzers such as Heathy drones.

    I m sure now you will be able to answer your questions by yourself.

    And if the Phantom is not available, DJI use the flight record from the app.
    It contains a lot of information and in many cases, it has enough for DJI to make a determination.
