    Thank you very much, I had overlooked that. Now the data seems to import ok, but it is not shown in any gauges except for map / GPS position (even lat/long text does not change). I tried adding custom values to a gauge with variables from the profile as input but no luck so far, the value remains zero. Anyway, I'm one step further than before, thanks again.

    Is there a legend file so i can better educate myself on what all the headings mean (some are very easy to interpret but some its foreign to me)
    Thanks again

    so far not, maybe in the future
    in most of the cases the names of the columns are speaking for themselves and those few exceptions are unknown to us too

    Just a suggestion - maybe create an open file so everyone can help contribute
    Heading / description / units / range


    P.s. Thank you for this great tool that will help many understand their toys

    When I started looking into these, every column was a black magic for me. Then after learning what it does, it becomes trivial. I think documenting these would be great, as for me that was a high entry barrier, and I'm sure many people bounce of it.

    Currently there are a lot of findings, but they're very distributed:
    - some are in TXT FlightRecord Converter
    - some are in DatCon column names
    - some are in DatCon source code if you open Java files in text editor
    - some are in Wireshark dissectors, as comments displayed in bottom status bar
    - some are in Wireshark dissectors, but only visible if you open LUA scripts in text editor

    Each of these tools is living its own life and the data is being continuously updated.
    Furthermore, some values have different names in every tool.

    For every column, I'd love to have: unit, min and max value, typical value (or typical range), description using different words than the field name, alternative names, details regarding where the value comes from and what it means.

    Collaborating on such documentation is a great idea.

    As promised here: [TOOL][WIN] Offline TXT FlightRecord to CSV Converter, I have reverse-engineered DJI’s “.txt” log file format, and have made available Open Source code for (command-line) applications that:
    1/ Read a DJI “.txt” file, outputting a ‘comma-separated value’ (CSV) file (that can be input to a spreadsheet), and
    2/ Read a CSV file, outputting a KML-format file (that can be read by Google Earth, to display your drone’s track).
    (These two applications can be combined (piped) together, so you can generate a KML-format file directly from a DJI “.txt” file.)

    You can find this (documentation plus source code) online at:
    Documenting the Format of DJI Log Files (http://djilogs.live555.com/)

    We also have a public mailing list - "[email protected]555.com” - that people can use to discuss this software (and the “.txt” log format in general). Information about this mailing list can be found at the web site noted above.

    (Note that I won’t be posting any more on this thread - so if you have any questions/comments about this software, please use our mailing list, rather than this thread.)

    Ross.

    Unfortunately :/

    Isn't the GPS position logged the corrected one - I.E, mixing GPS signal and accelerometers readouts ? In which case they may be some instances where the flight controller could sense such small variations.
    But, True, the base GPS signal would not be as precise anyway. I was asking because the UI let you set 9 digits - so why not the console version :).

    Thanks for these answers !

    I am running this tool in a batch file and once in a while it gives an error (Access violation at address XYZ in module). And the batch stops until user hits Ok button on the error dialog.

    1. I wonder why is that and if it can be rectified?
    2. Can you include an option that suppresses this dialog so it can go ahead with the batch of conversion without user's input?
    2. Can you set the %errorlevel% variable in this tool, so one can get a report of what conversion have been problematic (for future investigation)?

    Thanks
