    Well this should be welcomed, progress!



    3.13 How do I export flight data?
    Solution: Flight data includes flight altitude, speed and more.
    This information allows you and our technical support
    teams to analyze your aircraft in the event of an issue.
    Flight data is recorded any time that the aircraft is turned on.

    To export flight data, go to your SD card's root folder and look for "\FLYOSD\FLY[numbers].dat"
    and export DAT files to a PC.
    Refer to �Camera Data Port� (P20) for details on how access the SD card.
    Flight data is stored as a DAT file and can only be accessed by DJI Data Viewer.

    can you provide a link?

    I've checked all over DJIs website and don't see anything about Dataviewer.

    nevermind, found it.

    The Dataviewer is for Windows only. So, I'll just open it on my Mac with Parallels virtual machine!!

    So does this make Flytrex irrelevant? Just asking because I'm finally getting around to installing the Flytrex Core v1 on my new Vision+ and likely won't bother if this provides just as much useful info. (My main concern in getting a Flytrex is to be able to counter any accusation of "reckless flying" and the like in the event that something bad happens and the person decides it's worth their while to go to court.)

    just did a quick test flight after updating firmware.

    (yes, I recalibrated, yes I compensated the compass, yes I formatted the SD card)

    there are no .dat files on the SD card, so I can't say whatz up.

    new version of manual says the phantom leaves .dat files on the sd. not there. hmmm

    So is this an admission that something is indeed wrong with some PV+ and the are trying to figure it out?

    Maybe worth making the the 2 folders on the SD card yourself to see if it needs them first before it will write the data?

    no, that doesn't make sense, as that folder would get deleted every time you format the card, which I do every flight. The software on the Phantom should make the folder, don't you think?

    The software should, however it might not be creating it like it should.
    Worth a shot to make those folders and test it out.

    When you format the sd card the control board should write the folder to the card. Maybe try to format it again and give it a minute to populate the folder?

    I tried two SD cards, formatting first, not formatting... I tried to make a folder for the dat files... so far, nada.

    Let me know if anyone else find data.
