DJI Drones record a Flight Record .txt file onto the mobile device/tablet controller running DJI GO / DJI GO 4. These .txt files are encrypted, but can be decrypted and parsed with both our Video GeoTagger (FREE and PRO) and LineVision software. After parsing, you can use these files to geotag your DJI-recorded videos!
Retrieving the Flight Record TXT files
For Android controllers, to access the Flight Records connect the device to your PC with USB and allow it to mount as a file storage device. Then open the folder DJI > dji.go.v4 > FlightRecord. Depending on the version of DJI GO you are using, the folder you will find the flight records may also be named DJI\dji.pilot or DJI\dji.pilot.pad
You will see the flight records listed as DJIFlightRecord_DATE_[TIME].txt. Simply copy the files you’d like over to your PC and they are ready to be used for geotagging with their associated video.
If you are using an iPad or iPhone as a controller, you can use iTunes to retrieve the file. Connect the device using iTunes, then browse to the DJI GO app under the “File Sharing” view to find the FlightRecords folder.
After you have the .txt file, you are ready to geotag video using our Video GeoTagger or LineVision applications as shown in the video below:
