What are the system requirements for Flight Reader?
Flight Reader can be installed on any computer running Windows 8.1 (or higher). It can also be run on a Mac with
or VMware Fusion
(free for personal use). You'll need to install
if you'd like to view the KML files generated by
An Internet connection is required to do the following:
- Verify your Flight Reader license key
- Retrieve keys to decrypt flight logs created by DJI Fly 1.2.2 (or newer) or 3rd party applications using DJI SDK 2.4.13 (or newer)
- Retrieve elevation data from Google Cloud Platform
- Display Google Maps inside of Flight Reader
Your flight information or other private information will never be sent to DJI, Google, or other 3rd parties.
What kind of flight logs can I view in Flight Reader?
Flight Reader is able to decrypt and view the flight data inside of the flight logs created by the following applications:
- DJI GO/Fly/Pilot or other apps that use the DJI SDK (instructions for retrieving log files here)
- Note: Flight Reader cannot read DAT flight logs. Most of DJI's current drones create encrypted DAT flight logs — and those cannot be decrypted by any application.
- Drone Harmony
- Litchi (instructions for retrieving log files here)
- Map Pilot
How many flight logs can I process and store?
The flight logs are processed and stored locally on your computer, so you can process as many as you'd like. However, if you process more than
2,500 flight logs in a year or your free support expires and you don't renew it, you'll need to get a Google API key
and enter it in the "Google API" section of the
Flight Reader Options window. Google allows a certain number of API requests for free each month, so you should not have to pay anything if you're only
using your Google API key with Flight Reader.
With Flight Reader, you can:
- Privately process and view your flight logs locally on your computer. Your flight logs are never uploaded and stored on a website that's accessible via the Internet.
- Process an unlimited number of flight logs. The free online log viewer only allows five flight logs to be uploaded per day.
- Automatically download TXT flight logs from your DJI accoount — instead of manually retrieving and uploading them.
- Quickly process and view multiple flight logs. The free online log viewer requires flight logs to be uploaded one-by-one.
- Easily access processed flight logs from a sortable flight log list. All flight logs uploaded to the free online log viewer have a unique link — and you need to manually keep track of those links if you want to go back and review a previously uploaded flight log at a later time.
- Create Excel reports for any drone or battery. The report columns can be added, removed, or reordered to fit your needs.
