I was able to pull the DAT files by hooking into the USB port on the back of the bird. Opened them in notepad and it was gibberish. How do we dechiper?As I don't have a P3 or Inspire, I cannot say for certain but I am pretty sure there will be a folder with files that say FLY001.DAT, FLY002.DAT, etc. The data is a dump of all the CAN messages from a flight. Each subsystem has it's own message type that they broadcast over the bus. Messages are encapsulated into CAN frames. Not all messages come in consecutive frames which makes decoding interesting!
The NAZA data structures have been mostly mapped out but I don't know if one has been done the A2 (Inspire / P3 effectively use a variant of the A2). This is what one of the message looks like on the NAZA. The A2 version will be similar except some of the data structures will likely be different.
The app also stores basic flight log data itself. On android very easy to access just browse to the app directory. On iOS you will need a tool like, itools to do this.It's a binary encoded data stream. Notepad ain't gonna cut it!
There is already user development work going on to unpack the A2 format. I just haven't seen any threads on it lately. Someone will do it. Most of the hard work from the NAZA can be used to make it a lot easier.

Thanks, got the filesDevice storage>dji.pilot>flight record
Currently only the dji pilot app..Thanks, got the files
They look like are encoded some way?
Here are my files:
What can read those files?
Will Dji bring out a ASCII to CSV converter?Currently only the dji pilot app..
So currently could be taken a few ways...Currently only the dji pilot app..
If you turn on the video caption function you should generate a SRT file. This can be played with the video file in a player like vlc.So currently could be taken a few ways...
Is there any plans for DJI to release something or should we not hold our breath?
I was under the impression that something in plane readable text was available to us (turning that video caption option on that the Inspire has)?
Problem is it doesn't appear that we can turn the video caption function onIf you turn on the video caption function you should generate a SRT file. This can be played with the video file in a player like vlc.
Should be available in a future updateProblem is it doesn't appear that we can turn the video caption function on
See this post where I compared screens
Those camera functions are missing (or I don't know where to find them in the P3 menus)
Looks like maybe a bug in the softwareI knew it was there but I'm also on a build or two newer.. I do believe HS is Head speed, were you hovering?
