Please note: Mavic 2, Mavic Air, Air 2S, Mavic Mini, M300 RTK, and FPV drones DAT files extracted from the aircraft are not supported.

Airdata also supports ALL mobile device DAT files (for ALL drone types) from your phone/tablet - these are available in the MCDatFlightRecord folder:
  • On Android these will be under /DJI/dji.go.v4/FlightRecord/MCDatFlightRecords
  • On iOS these will be under File Sharing in iTunes -> FlightRecords (Save to disk) and then open MCDatFlightRecords folder under it in your computer

If you are new to Airdata: Automatic upload is available! We support automatic uploads of the log files from your tablet (TXT drone flight log). Please visit the main upload page to learn more.




Instructions to upload DAT file located on DJI aircraft



  1. After flying, connect your DJI aircraft to your computer via an USB cable and open DJI Assitant 2, then click on the phone/tablet icon.







  2. Click on the aircraft icon (in this example it's a Mavic Pro).







  3. Click on "Data Upload" in the DJI Assistant 2 App.







  4. Click "Confirm" in the pop-up window.







  5. Select the flights you want to view on Airdata, then click on the "Save To Local" button.

    NOTE: 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.







  6. Select where to save the DAT file on your local computer.








  7. The download will start. Please note that DJI assistant will compress all the selected flights into one big file.








  8. Once the DAT file is saved to your computer, click "Open in the folder" to see the saved DAT file.








  9. Go to https://app.airdata.com/main?a=upload to upload the DAT file to Airdata.








  10. 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







  11. Click on "Upload Flights" to upload.







  12. Once uploaded, click on "Continue to flights".

    Important: It will take a moment for DAT file flights to show up in your flight list.

Hi, my trouble is not to know/see the uploaded files. I can't distinct which was already there and which is the uploaded ones. Also I miss the data for the disconnected time during flight, this is the reason why I undergo this procedure.

Hi Peter, thanks for the comment. I see that you sent us a direct email about this question, which we have replied to. To recap here, it looks like you are unable to see the uploaded .DAT files because the .DAT files you are attempting to upload are not supported by AirData at this time due to an encryption that DJI has placed on them. Please refer to the supported .DAT file list at the top of this help page. We hope to support additional .DAT files in the future!

Best,
Trevor

Hi Alfredo, please note that the DAT file size limit for our free - HD 360 PRO plans is 800MB, and 2.5GB for Enterprise subscribers.

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 support@airdata.com.

Best,
Trevor

En cual plataforma puedo visualizar los archivos data que fueron creados por la aplicación dji asistente para un dron Mavic 2 enterprise?
Exporté los log files con extensión 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.

Hi Alfredo, we do not currently support the Mavic 2 Enterprise .DAT files due to an encryption on them from DJI. Please see the list at the top of this help page for support .DAT files. However, we do support the Mavic 2 Enterprise .txt log files, located on the phone/tablet. Please see the instructions below for uploading these flight logs:

When using an Android device: app.airdata.com
When using an iOS device: app.airdata.com

Best,
Trevor
