    You can retrieve your saved telemetry files from your device used to view/control your quad. (Android) The file is usually saved on your device as DJI, dji.pilot, FlightRecord

    Also, everytime you fire up your quad, DJI has a built in telemetry recorder that records data more than every second. These ".DAT" files can be pretty big. You extract the file from your Phantom from the front USB connector.

    There are several online sites that allow you to upload your files and have them converted to excel for viewing or implementing into a nice app called "DashWare"

    RE above, you need at least a P3. I have only a P2V which is one of the many reasons I like Flytrex.

    But if you fly with Litchi, you also get a data log, and you can use that in conjunction with other logs when using Dashware.
