Now you can create a custom live badge to use in your email signature and website.

3. CSV heights

New

For all of our paid subscribers, we enhanced our CSV file to include multiple measures of heights throughout the entire flight:

  • Height Above Ground Level (AGL)
  • Ground elevation (at the drone location)
  • Drone altitude Above Sea Level (ASL)
  • Height above takeoff
You can now monitor the true AGL (Above Ground Level) for safer flights.

Download the CSV in the General->Overview of each flight, just below the flight map.


4. DAT file support


You can now upload the log file from the aircraft itself ("DAT file").

Use DJI Assistant to extract it from the drone, upload via the Airdata upload page, and view the full details!

You can also upload the DAT file from the tablet.

Initial version doesn't fully support Mavic 2 & Mavic Air.

9. Mavic 2 wind profiles

We now perfected the aerodynamic model of the Mavic 2 series, and upgraded the wind analysis for this aircraft.

Wind data for previously uploaded flights is already updated!

 

10. Battery cells graph

View the voltage per each cell, zoom in, and browse around to figure out the extent of the issue.

Find it under FLIGHTS, Power->Cells Graph:

11. Send/Receive flights (Enterprise plan)

For those fleet managers who utilize contractors - this feature allows you to receive a full copy of flights from each pilot for regulatory reporting.

Each pilot can have their own Airdata account to track all of their flights, and choose which flights to send to you.

For each incoming flight - you may choose if you also want to import the associated equipment, or only the flight.

New

 

12. Post-flight checklists (Enterprise plan)

Now in beta - collect post flight information from your pilots.

Each answer can be included in your reports and report templates.

    How can I sync my parrot disco?

    • Eran Steiner

      Currently, you have to do it manually, by going to the flight app and sharing the flight via email, for example, then upload the JSON file to Airdata. In the future, we will have auto sync, similar to how we do it with DJI.

  • Rodger Ozburn

    Great news on the AGL feature! We have some areas we fly that the best takeoff spot may be at the bottom of the slope (in the hollow) and we need to fly to the top of the mountain, sometimes several hundreds of feet in elevation. Our flight records were showing extremely high altitudes, when in fact we were not going over 400 AGL or that far above the tree tops. Very interested in testing this new AGL reading for accuracy.

  • Gustav Boström

    Is there any API available for downloading the flight records? It would be nice for automating the creation of map tracks for videos for example.

  • Steve Carr

    How did you decrypt the Mavic2 logs on the bird? I have trued with no success.

  • Greg Howe

    Will Parrot's eBee Plus be able to add flight logs or auto sync in the future?

  • Rey

    Thanks for the great work on this app.

    I am a commercial drone operator in Singapore and this app really helps my team in ensuring standards are met.

    Cheers
