    Can anyone point me to a flight log analysis tool? And is there a tool that will project the flight path in 3D over a google-like map? I think that would be real cool to review your flight that way.

    Thanks

    I have a list of flight log tools here.

    My online flight log viewer does this. You can try it out here.

    It really depends on what kind of data you're trying to find. My flight viewer works well if you need an overview of your flight. When I really need to dig into the log details, I use TXT-to-CSV Log Converter to generate a CSV file of all of the flight data. CsvView is a good tool to use when you want to compare a few data points on a graph.

    How are the .txt files encoded?
    It does not look like plain text to me!
    (I'm using a Linux OS)

    Looks like Controller software v 1.8.0 now has a really nice review feature I had not seen before . . . You can replay the entire flight . . look at photos you took and watch all the general flight parameters as you replay the route.
    Go to initial start screen with the picture of the P3 P4 showing (camera) choice
    Touch top left icon (little paper dart thingy)
    and just touch on the flight you want to review
    Never got the playback button before but I can now
    Very handy

    I've put together some code, and hope that some users here would like to test it.

    All it does (for now) is convert online a DJI flight log to a downloadable .csv (Excel).
    When I'm sure that this is working fine I will be able to do all kind of nice things with.
    (I've got some great ideas)
    Please note. I've only tested it with Mavic Pro log files! If possible als teste other DJI files!

    >> Again.. Nothing fancy .. Just a simple upload > convert and download. <<

    Please test it and report back!
    URL: BETA - Flight log analyzer ( flightlog.vidnote.com )

    The files will be auto deleted after 5 minutes of uploading.
