All available options for importing flight logs into Flight Reader

DJI TXT flight logs can be imported into Flight Reader using one of these options:

  1. Automatically sync flight logs from the DJI Cloud (not available in the US)

    DJI Fly, DJI GO, and other DJI apps used to fly DJI drones are able to automatically upload your flight logs (commonly referred to as “syncing them”) to the DJI Cloud after a flight has been completed. Flight Reader can then be configured to automatically check the DJI Cloud for new flight logs (see these instructions) and download and process them when found.

    You can also manually initiate the syncing process at any time by choosing FileSync Flight Logs from the menu at the top of the main Flight Reader window.

    Note: DJI disabled flight log syncing in the US on June 12, 2024. See more details here.

  2. Manually retrieve flight logs for import into Flight Reader

    A TXT flight log is created on the device used to fly your DJI drone (phone/tablet/DJI RC) each time you fly. Those TXT files can be manually retrieved (like this) and then manually imported into Flight Reader.

    For importing into Flight Reader, copy the files to your Windows desktop (or another local folder on your computer) and then drag and drop them onto the main Flight Reader window. You can also choose FileImport Flight Log… from the menu at the top of the main Flight Reader window to select a TXT flight log file to import via a file dialog window.

    This manual import option will also work if importing other supported CSV log types – including DroneDeploy, Drone Harmony, Litchi, and Map Pilot.

  3. Transfer DJI TXT flight logs directly from Android devices

    Flight Reader 1.6.3 (or higher) is able to to transfer TXT flight logs directly from Android devices (phones/tablets/DJI RCs) that are connected to your computer with a USB cable. These transfers are quick and don’t require uploading your flight logs to the Internet.

    Follow these instructions to connect an Android device to your computer with a USB cable that supports files transfer and then start Flight Reader (if not running) or choose FileSync Flight Logs from the menu at the top of the main Flight Reader window (if Flight Reader is already running).
