Instructions to upload DAT file located on DJI aircraft
- After flying, connect your DJI aircraft to your computer via an USB cable and open DJI Assistant 2, then click on the phone/tablet icon.
- Click on the aircraft icon (in this example it's a Mavic Pro).
- Click on "Data Upload" in the DJI Assistant 2 App.
- Click "Confirm" in the pop-up window.
- Select the flights you want to view on Airdata, then click on the "Save To Local" button.
||Since DAT files are fairly large, and since DJI Assistant will combine all selected files into one big file when exporting,
we recommend selecting just one or two files at a time when you export the data (as opposed to exporting all files at once).
This way - you will not exceed the Airdata file size upload limit.
- Select where to save the DAT file on your local computer.
- The download will start. Please note that DJI assistant will compress all the selected flights into one big file.
- Once the DAT file is saved to your computer, click "Open in the folder" to see the saved DAT file.
- Go to https://app.airdata.com/main?a=upload to upload the DAT file to Airdata.
- Drag and drop the DAT file into the drop box area, or click "SELECT FILES" to select instead of drag and drop.
Here is an example of what to look for: DJI_ASSISTANT_EXPORT_FILE_2019-04-16_15-08-11.DAT
- Click on "Upload Flights" to upload.
- Once uploaded, click on "Continue to flights".
Important: It will take a moment for DAT file flights to show up in your flight list.

While we understand that there is an occasional need for uploading the DAT files, we generally recommend that you upload the .txt files, which are smaller than the DAT files and can often be automatically uploaded to your AirData account.
Please visit this page for our recommended methods of uploading logs for each flight app: app.airdata.com
If you would like more information on our Enterprise level subscription for viewing larger DAT files, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exporté los log files con extensiÃ³n dat. Se supone que el fabricante debe facilitar la plataforma para leer dichos archivos con extension DAT, exportados de un dron Mavic 2 enterprise.
Ya estoy desesperado.

Thank you for your post.
AirData supports the upload of DJI Mini 3 Pro flight logs from the flight control device (phone/tablet/controller).
The DJI Mini 3 Pro is not on the list of drones for which we support DAT files downloaded directly from the drone itself.
The instructions for setting up the DJI Mini 3 Pro will vary depending on the make and model of the control device you are using.
Please send us an email at email@example.com with this question. Please also let us know which control device and flight app you are using.
We will be happy to assist you.
Thank you for posting this question.
AirData supports DroneDeploy and DJI Pilot's flight logs via different upload processes.
For DroneDeploy, you will need to enable your AirData Auto Upload Token in DroneDeploy settings.
Please see our DroneDeploy help article for further instructions: app.airdata.com
Your Auto Upload Token can be accessed in your AirData dashboard via My Account -> Auto Upload Token.
If you continue to experience issues uploading flights via DroneDeploy, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be happy to help you set this up. Thank you.
