    I have recently purchased my first drone last week(Phantom 4) and am very pleased with it so far apart from purple/green bars on display sometimes, but I can live with that as the footage to the SD card is fine.

    Having looked through the forums I haven't managed to find an answer to my query.

    I have recently downloaded Dashware and want to be able to use the flight data from my Phantom 4 to overlay on the video. I've not been able to find how to download the full flight data from the Phantom 4 and I understand the info recorded by the DJI Go app in the DJI/dji.pilot/FlightRecord directory doesn't seem to record all of the details.

    Once I have these files, is any convertion required before Dashware will recognise them. Any help, guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm working on that small project right now.
    I fly a P3A and my problem is "how to sync video and data metrics"

    Any help, kind of "how to", "tutorial" will be helpful.

    I really can't get any data out from .cvs file that i convert using new DatCon 2.2.7 beta.

    When i load the .cvs file in Dashware, there is no data on any gauges :-(

    Sorry guys, it was my error. Still learning Dashware.

    - You have to go in the Dashware software "Analysis by time" and choose metrics that you want to monitor. It's a small detail that make ALLLLLL the difference :)

    You can't convert P4 DAT logs into csv using Datcon. Read here:
    DatFile.net
    @BudWalker thinks its probably encrypted and can't be done easily.
    But you can convert txt logs using this converter:
    [TOOL][WIN] Offline TXT FlightRecord to CSV Converter
    A converted DAT (from P3) has a lot more info but if you don't mind not having any motor infos, mag details etc its ok.
    I have a Dashware profile for it.If there is any interest I can post it with a template including gauges.
    Here is an example.

    Many thanks for your replies, I did download the Dat files, but like you say you can't convert them... I'll guess I'll have to use the Flight record text files for now, although I have noticed that I don't seem to get these for every flight I do. If you wouldn't mind posting the Dashware template, that would be great and much appreciated.

    The flight log of FPV Camera app can direct export to CSV and import to DashWare with specific data profile. Read more Flight Log

    I was able to convert the Flightlogs text file to csv and it was recognised by Dashware as a Flytrex profile, I performed the synchronise procedure and played the video, it mostly worked OK (wouldn't provide correct speed) and about 1/3 of the way into a 12 minute flight the data stopped updating. Any suggestions on why this might be happening, I'm using a Samsung galaxy s5 as my viewing device.

    Regards,
