How do I download data from the FILES tab?


To access, click on the FILES tab in the top-right corner of your portal.


All the available files are organized by data type.

Click on any of the data types in the left column to see individual files available for download.

Choose the desired file and click on the DOWNLOAD button.


You can also download any design files that you have uploaded to your site, or, if you’ve used the Terrain Editing feature, you can export that edited terrain. In other words, you can download anything you’ve uploaded.  

If you need a file type not listed above, please check out our other articles about file formats and outputs.

I still can't do it!

We wrote these articles to arm you with everything you need to get the job done on your own, but we understand that sometimes this isn't sufficient.

If you're stuck, the Propeller Hardware Support team may be able to help. You can contact our support team by emailing hardwaresupport@propelleraero.com.au or by clicking the support tab on the top-right pane of your user portal.
