Importing flight telemetries and airframe data from Pix4D Capture is a straightforward process but will require a little bit of effort to pull the logs from the filesystem of the device the aircraft was flown with. Follow the steps below, and you should be able to get those logs into Skyward in just a couple of minutes.
For assistance with other Operating systems or devices, reach out to your assigned Customer Success Manager. We’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.
What you’ll need:
- The device you flew the mission with (iPad, iPhone, etc...)
- A cable to connect that device to your computer
Once the device is connected to your computer, navigate to the internal filesystem on the device. In the screenshots below, you’ll see the iPad appears as a selectable device in the Locations menu at bottom left:
Select the Files option from the top banner when viewing the connected device, and you’ll see the files available for your device applications:
From there, select Pix4Dcapture, and you’ll see a menu expand that shows its contents. You’re looking for the SDK Logs folder.
Simply drag that folder out of the file explorer on to your Desktop (or to whatever location you’d like). Inside that folder, you’ll see each of the flight logs, along with the date that they were created.
That’s the location you’ll need to now browse to from the Operation in Skyward. In order to grab these flight logs from that Operation, open it and head to the Flights tab.
Select the Import Flight option from the menu at right (see above in the screenshot), and just browse to the file(s) referenced above.
Once you select the Log File from the flight record, it will import, along with the flight telemetry data.
Review the basic flight information and select Save at the bottom of the window to continue.
From there, the flight name can be selected in order to view all the specific flight data such as altitude, battery voltage, etc...
