Manually adding drones and batteries


Feature availability


IMPORTANT: Most users will not need to manually add drones and batteries. When you upload a flight log to AirData, we will automatically create a profile for the drone and battery(s) used. Locate these profiles by going to the EQUIPMENT tab.

For tracking equipment that is not currently on our supported aircraft list, we provide you the option to manually creating drone and battery profiles.

To add a drone, navigate to EQUIPMENT -> DRONES and click on "Add Drone."

add drone

Click on "I understand, continue".

Proceed to fill out the information for this drone, and click on "Save Drone Details" when you are satisfied with your entry.

custom drone

Your drone will now appear in the flight list.

How do I remove batteries from my account and not lose the flights (to maintain my hours)?

Hi Vergil, in order for a flight to exist on AirData, it must have a drone and battery(s) assigned to it. However, we realize that there are times when you do not want older drones/batteries to count against your equipment quotas, so we present a solution in the following video. I hope you find it to be helpful.

One group of flights did not record the SN of the drone. Same drone as other flights. Another group of flights did not record gps data on photos. Would like to merge flights with correct internal SN. Just curious about GPS data not recordings

Hi Alan,

Thanks for posting this question.
It sounds like you're dealing with two separate issues: 1) missing serial number info, and 2) missing GPS info for photos.

Can you send us an email at support@airdata.com with some additional info?
We'll need to know what aircraft, remote controller(s), and flight app(s) you're using for these flights.

Thank you. We'll look for your email to support.


Best regards,
Tom

Hello,

Thank you for writing with this question. I wanted to provide some clarification regarding the serial numbers associated with the drones and batteries.

Firstly, it is worth mentioning that the drones and batteries often come with both an internal and a printed serial number, which may not always match each other. Please note, the internal serial number cannot be edited. It serves as a unique identifier that AirData utilizes to appropriately associate the flight logs with the corresponding equipment.

As a general overview: When you complete a flight, the DJI Fly app generates a log and stores it on the DJI RC 2. To upload the flight log to AirData, the log needs to first be synced with DJI's servers. AirData can then retrieve the log from DJI's servers.

This article provides instructions for Direct DJI Sync, which is the process for uploading DJI Fly flight logs from the DJI RC 2 to AirData: app.airdata.com

It's generally advised to only resort to manual creation of drones and batteries if AirData does not yet support them. Please note that AirData won't auto-assign flight logs to equipment that's manually created. Hence, if a profile is manually created and then flight logs are uploaded, AirData would generate a redundant profile. In such cases, it's suggested to delete the manually created profile.

Please reach out to us at support@airdata.com if you have any additional questions about this process. We are happy to help!

Best regards,
Teresa

"Is there any limitation on the information or data that can be added when manually creating flight entries for drones not on the predefined list, such as the Agras T20, T30, and T40 series?"
"Can your platform support real-time monitoring of a fleet of 6 drones, including T16 and T30 models, providing access to performance data, notifications, weather information, route tracking, alerts, and all the features available for drones like the Matrice 300 RTK?"

Hi Johan,

Thank you for following up with this question.

The Manual Flight Entries contain more limited data than what AirData can automatically pull from a flight log.
You can see the available fields in the help article linked above, Manually Creating Flight Records: app.airdata.com

Regarding our support for your fleet, please send us an inquiry at support@airdata.com or info@airdata.com
Any information you can provide about your aircraft and your team's fleet management needs would be helpful.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Tom

Hi,

Thank you for sharing this question.

This looks to be a known issue with DJI Pilot's flight logs for the Matrice 300 RTK where the battery temperature is not included.
We may need some additional information to help you troubleshoot this case.
Please send us an email at support@airdata.com with the dates and times of the flight logs in question.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Tom
