    I was reading around and I saw a lot of people saying the log could not be read due to the new fw update. I've
    tried to check my logs yesterday but half of them are blank or they have numbers that don't make sens like 68v on cell 1 lol. Any clue on this?

    Here my log from yesterday.

    Thank you

    matt

    It is more related to the latest GO app, not the firmware IMO.

    Depend what you want to see. Healthydrones is not that good to understand why. It is more a flight monitoring tool that try to warn you about potential issues.
    Standalone tools like CsvView is much better to understand what has gone wrong.

    I am afraid that currently it is affected by the same issue. I expect it will be sorted out quickly.

    With CsvView you can still view .DAT flight record from the P3 itself.

    They have not changed, the .DAT from the drone would work. I just checked it.

    See here: DJI Phantom Accessories & Tips - Phantom Help, section LOGS, "Retrieve internal flight logs from Phantom on " Mac or Windows
    Fist you use the Go app to set the drone in Flight data mode.
    Then you have to connect USB to the drone itself (in the front bellow the logo), not to the gimbal.
    At least for windows you get a new drive on your PC (I don't have a mac) that is read-only and you will see the last flight log. They automatically self erase after some time.
    Best is to use time and date to retrieve the one you want.
    The transfer is slow.
    The format data recorder option shown in the above linked procedure seems to be no more present, at least on mine. In any case, it is not really needed.
    Then you can disconnect and return the P3 to normal mode via the app. You need to power cycle the P3 if you want to use it again.

    I had some too with no real explanation. I din't had a screen recorder and there was no trace of the message in the logs.
    There was no real issue during the flight and it was using the GPS also during that time at my opinion. Just these message to scare you.
    I have to try to reproduce it this weekend.
