    Hey y'all

    As I want to start using Healthydrones I would like to extract flight data from the P3S using USB.
    For some reason the drone does not pop up when I connect it to my PC.
    The drone is powered on when I plug it in, so it should work.

    Running Windows 10, and never saw a message for drivers etc.

    Anyone got any ideas how this is caused, and more importantly how to solve this?

    Follow these instructions:

    1) Open DJI GO and go to "MC Settings" --> "Advanced Settings" --> "Enter flight data mode".
    2) Wait until the DJI GO app acknowledges that your Phantom is in flight data mode.
    3) Connect the USB cable from your computer to the front of your Phantom (opposite the battery side).

    If it's the same as the Advanced, you have to go into the app and set it to flight data mode.

    You can also get the txt file from the app on tour tablet.

    No. Turn your Phantom off and back on.
