    Hi,
    I bought a used Mavic and want to see if I can extrac flight data off it. I plug it into my laptop and no drive shows up. Can I extract flight data from the drone?

    Getting home I notice 1 of the extra blades had the nubs torn off and I want to see if it's been in a crash of some sort, would files within the drone indicate what happened?

    Thanks.

    You can export the internal DAT flight logs from the Mavic using the DJI Assistant 2 app. The problem is there aren't any apps that can read those DAT flight logs.

    So I'm pretty much in the dark about any flight information that occurred before I owned the mavic?

    Yes.

    The author of DatCon (@BudWalker) is working on a version that can read Mavic Pro DAT logs. I don't know how far along he is though.

    Can you send me a sample of such a log?

    You can use the DJI Assistant 2 app to retrieve your logs.

    Noted - but I don't have a Mavic yet. I'd like to see some logs so I can write some s/w for it.
