For users of both DJI and Skyward, the sync feature is a big time-saver that prevents having to add data in more than one place. Once you connect your DJI GO and Skyward accounts, Skyward will pull in new flight logs every 30 minutes.
Currently Skyward has some issues with retrieving battery data on older DJI aircraft because the logfile for certain DJI airframes represents battery data in a different way than other airframes. This results in missing serial number and battery voltage information. This occurs for the following airframes:
Even if you manually select a battery at flight log import, the flight log visualization page will not display battery information.
Note: Some pilots may want to create a DJI account just for the flights that will be logged in Skyward, for example, if you want to keep recreational or training flights separate from those you fly for work.
Here is a quick video tutorial that shows the complete workflow:
The Integrations page shows the organization to which you have connected any DJI accounts. The number in green shows how many flights were synced last. It also displays the total flights that Skyward has pulled from your DJI account.
Going forward, you’ll find your synced DJI GO flights in Flight Imports. Every 30 minutes, Skyward will download your latest DJI flights.
To move one flight: select one flight. You will be given the choice to move it into an existing planned operation or to create a new one.
To move more than one flight: select two or more checkboxes to the left of the flight you want to move. You will be given the choice to move it into an existing planned operation or to create a new one.
On you have associated a flight with an operation, navigate to the Flights tab. You can click on the flight and see the data for that flight, including flight path, battery, pilot, and battery performance. To delete a flight, move it into an operation and then delete the flight from the Flights tab.
Flights listed in Flight Imports aren’t officially logged in Skyward until you move them into an operation. Once you move them there and then log that operation, your flight hours will accrue.
