Extracting Flight Logs From DJI Pilot 2

DJI Pilot 2 is the flight software used by the DJI Matrice 300 and 350 RTK (M300/350) and the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise (M3E).

The controller and drone will record log files for each flight that contain a wealth of information regarding telemetry, speed, battery info, electronics, and more. 

In some cases, retrieving this information is useful so we can share it with DJI and let them know exactly what occurred during a flight, especially in the event of a crash. To extract the flight records, follow the steps below.

1. Open DJI Pilot 2 and tap the green Normal in the top right corner (It may also say Warning in red).


2. Tap Manage Logs.


3. Tap Aircraft Logs.


4. Tap to select the log you would like to download.


5. Tap Upload to initiate the upload to DJI.


6. Your flights have now synced with DJI. Share the unique QR code with your support representative.
