Since the release of DJI Fly 1.2.2 and 3rd party applications using DJI SDK 2.4.13, DJI's flight logs are being protected by an encryption scheme that hasn't been shared with most of the developers who created DJI log viewers. That caused most of the commonly used log viewers (like my free online log viewer) to be rendered useless for newer DJI apps and the last several consumer drones released by DJI.

A recent partnership with DJI allowed me access to the DJI API — which several other partners (like Airdata) are using today to decrypt the new flight log format. After a few months of development and testing, I'm happy to announce Flight Reader (my offline log viewer) is now able to process flight logs created by any version of DJI GO, DJI Fly, or other apps using the DJI SDK.

Never heard of Flight Reader? Here are some of its benefits:
  • No monthly fee
  • Privately process & store your flight logs offline
  • View an unlimited number of flight logs
  • Customize the logs & reports to best meet your needs

TLDR: You can use Flight Reader to process and view your encrypted TXT flight logs offline.

A new version of Flight Reader is available. Release 1.3.3 includes the following changes:
  • The battery data could not be decrypted in some flight logs. That failure was causing Flight Reader to generate empty log and KML files.

  • Resolved an issue that sometimes caused the max speed to display as infinite.
