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 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.
