  • DJI Inspire 1 and Inspire 2

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.
Please see the full list of supported aircraft here.




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 Assistant 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

Hi Rob,

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 support@airdata.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.

Best regards,
Tom

Hi Tony,

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 support@airdata.com
We would be happy to help you set this up. Thank you.

Hi, I have a .dat file from an M300. It is 783mb. I'm trying to do a manual upload to airdata. We have the HD 360 PRO subscription.

When I upload the .Dat, I get the same message as the screenshot above. When I click Continue to Flights, the flights don't show up.

Hello,

Thank you for writing with this question.

It's important to note that AirData currently does not support the DAT files from the M300 RTK drone due to encryption constraints. As a result, attempting manual uploads may not yield the desired results, as you have experienced.

However, AirData offers seamless automatic flight log uploads from the DJI Smart Controller. To ensure a smooth experience, we recommend using our AirData app for uploading flight logs from your M300 RTK drone. For detailed instructions on completing this process, please see this help article: app.airdata.com

If you encounter any further difficulties or require additional assistance, please reach out to our dedicated support team at support@airdata.com. We would be happy to provide further assistance.

Kind regards,
Teresa

Hello,

Thank you for writing with this question.

When conducting a DJI flight, there are typically two flight records that are created – one is stored on the drone itself (DAT file) and one file is stored on the phone/tablet (TXT file). Due to DJI's encryption, the Mavic 3 Enterprise DAT files are not supported. We recommend that you upload the TXT files, which are much smaller than the DAT files and can be automatically uploaded to your AirData account.

The best method for uploading flight logs will depend on your controller/phone/tablet model, your flight app, and your workflows. For detailed directions on automatically syncing flight logs to AirData, please visit our uploads help page: app.airdata.com

If you are continuing to experience trouble syncing flight logs to AirData, please reach out to our dedicated support team at support@airdata.com.
We are happy to help!

Kind regards,
Teresa

Hello,

Thank you for writing with this question.

Typically, if the DAT file upload is successful, you should see the files processing on your account and subsequently displaying in your AirData account.

While we understand that there is an occasional need for uploading DAT files, we generally recommend that you upload the .txt files. These files are smaller than the DAT files and can often be automatically uploaded to your AirData account.

For our recommended methods of uploading logs for each flight app, please visit this page: app.airdata.com

If you are unable to see your flights successfully, please write to our dedicated support team at support@airdata.com. Please also include which aircraft's DAT files you were attempting to upload, the flight application, and the control device used to conduct flights. We are happy to help.

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
Teresa
