9 Flight Logs

Flight logs are generated after the successful flight. You can see all the logs related to flight in the following ways:

1. Logs from Dashboard

It includes the logs of all the flights for all types of drones and pilots. The list displayed will have the status, date, and time of the flight. The user has to search for a particular flight.

The above image shows the list of logs. This option is having 3 different tabs:

1) All logs: containing logs and warnings. Under the 'All Logs' section, the logs of NPNT and flight are shown together. Using the scroll bar, you can scroll down/up to see more logs. The logs are shown with their dates and time including seconds. The logs are shown in ascending order where the latest date logs are shown first. Logs are categorized with their category to understand to which category log belongs.

2) Flight Logs: Logs related to the in-flight operations.

Under "Flight Logs", all logs related to flight operations are shown. Detailed information of all the logs is available here with the date and time.

The user can download the logs to check the parameters for future work. The downloaded files can be stored on the local computer.

3) Warnings: All the Warnings related to pre-armed and in-flight operations are displayed here.

Under "Warnings", all warnings related to flight operation are shown. These are the logs that are generated by flight controller hardware during actual flight or before a flight. These logs are critical logs and should be viewed thoroughly to avoid any misbehavior by the RPA.

All these logs can be easily downloaded on respective local computers in .json file format. All these logs are helpful in taking decisions and making improvements in the operation of the device. The user will check for pre-armed check warnings, in operation warnings also. By having the entire log readily available the corrections and modifications becomes very much easier. These logs will help to avoid the misbehavior of the device during flight as well as reduces the chances of destruction and losses to the device.

These logs are available on the dashboard also which will be very easy to see the warnings during operation also.

2. From Selected Plan

Go to Dashboard. Select the project in which the respective plan is stored. Select the plan. Click on three dots on the right-hand side. A pop-up menu will appear on the screen. Select "View Logs" option to see the logs as shown in the following image.

View Logs

In this feature users can see the logs of a particular flight in the graph form and can also see the data related to it. Users can see the details of the flight like plan name, project name, start time, end time, date, flight id, duration, average altitude, and average speed. Also, the user can see the altitude, speed, battery, and logs related to the flight.

In view details, the user can see the roll, pitch, yaw, and other information related to the flight.

Pitch, Roll, and Yaw are also known as axes of rotation, and these are going to control the movement and direction of the drone in the air during your flight.

Pitch is the rotation of a vehicle locked between the lateral or transverse axis, commonly known as the side-to-side axis (in an airplane, wingtip to wingtip). If the pitch is positive, the front end will rise and the back end will fall. It is used to assist with ascent and descent.

Roll, also known as the longitudinal axis, is the rotation of a vehicle from front to back (nose to tail). When performing a turn, the vehicle "banks" left or right to move to one side or the other. A positive roll angle raises the left wing while lowering the right.

Yaw is the rotation around the vertical axis and lies perpendicular to the wings of an aircraft and in the centerline. The yaw motion is a side-to-side nose movement of the aircraft as shown below from its center of gravity. Positive yaw would move the nose to the right. Yaw changes the direction the aircraft is pointing and can be prevented by the use of the rudder.

Click on the description under start time here to get the graphical information of all the parameters of the flight.

Click on "View Details" to get more details regarding to the flight. It gives a detailed time-wise report of various parameters as shown in the image.

The user will get the graphical and statistical data related to the completed flight in the form of details such as time, altitude, speed, battery status, etc. The flight logs indicate the changes in the device's pitch, roll, yaw, and altitude values. The user will study the graphs and analyze the behavior of the device. The data presented in the graph will be useful for analyzing the completed flight. The graphs also show glitches in GPS systems, changes in the speed of the vehicle, etc., if any. The user can use these data to improve the performance of the device. These logs are available after the simulation also, so it becomes very easy to analyze the performance of the device with specific values, and with the respective changes in the parameters, the user may get improved and desirable performance without any damage to the device.

3. From Home Menu

Select 'Download Logs' from the Home menu of AeroGCS KEA 2.3 as shown in the following image.

The list of bin files will be displayed on the screen as shown in image.

The 'Available' status of a bin file indicates that the log is available to download. Select the required file to download the logs from the list. Click on "Download" button to download the log.

Log file will be downloaded to the desired location on the computer which can be opened from the specified location.

Select the downloaded bin file to see the contents as shown in the following image:

These logs are useful for Certification Audit.
