Not to be a troll, but this was no help at all. I was here because I can't get the app to sync. I'm having trouble because the app doesn't think I have pointed it to the right folder to sync from. Might be right, but I'm out of ideas.

Hi Donald,

I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble syncing your flights. If you could please send an email to support@airdata.com with answers to the following questions, we'd be glad to help troubleshoot.

For the flights that are not uploading...
1) What flight app(s) are you using?
2) What is the make and model of the phone/tablet you are using to conduct the flights?

Also, if you are using one of the following flight apps, feel free to check out the referenced videos for the most common reasons why flights may not be uploading.

DJI Fly: vimeo.com

DJI GO 4/Pilot: vimeo.com


Best,
Trevor

Hi Amber,

Thank you for posting this question.

Please note that this video is a few years old and the folder permissions settings were not introduced until 2023.
Due to recent security changes in Android, AirData UAV now asks for permission to access specific folders.

When selecting the flight app folders, AirData UAV will automatically take you to the correct folder. You can simply grant access on the first screen you see after selecting a flight app.

If you are not being taken to the correct folder, or are seeing an error, please send us an email at support@airdata.com
We would be happy to provide further assistance.

Thank you. I hope this helps.

Best Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom,
"When selecting the flight app folders, AirData UAV will automatically take you to the correct folder. You can simply grant access on the first screen you see after selecting a flight app."
I'm having the same issue as others on my android tablet with permissions for the DJI FLY app. I've emailed support with screenshots.

Hi,

Thank you for sharing this question and for sending us that email. We have just replied to your email and the instructions below are excerpted from our reply.

We understand you are having issues granting permissions from the Manage Permissions -> Supported Apps.

Once you tap the "DJI Fly" checkbox on the Supported Apps page, you will be taken to the DJI Fly folder. On the very next screen, you simply need to press the buttons for "Use this folder" -> "Allow".
You do not need to navigate anywhere or select a specific folder. You are already in the required folder, in this case ~Android/data/dji.go.v5

Thank you. I hope this helps. Please feel free to reply to our email from support@airdata.com if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,
Tom

Hi,

I'm writing with an update from our engineering team on this issue.

There is an ongoing bug in the latest versions of Android 13 and 14 that is affecting the file managers in Android apps.
We are working with Google to find a fix for this issue.

We will post an update when there is a resolution.
Thank you.

Tom,
Is there some workaround to fix this issue?

When asked for the right folder and I enter inside ~/Android/ there is only a folder media/ and inside it there are many apps (com.whatapp, etc), there is not the data/ folder that DJI Fly could be.

Best Regards,

Alan

Hi Alan,

Thank you for asking.

Our team has found a workaround for Android 13 and 14 devices.
The workaround is detailed in this help article: app.airdata.com
Rolling back the Android system "Files" app restores functionality required for folder access.

If you require any assistance with the workaround, please send us an email at support@airdata.com
Thank you.

Best Regards,
Tom

Tom, thanks, I was able to get upload working, but my new Mini4 pro was disconnected for most of flight, so I need to use the large Dat files, but get upload error stating file too large. Is there a fix for this?
