I've been using the Smart Controller for nearly a month now and flew at least 20 times without any problems. I also updated the firmware when it came out a little while back.

Yesterday I flew a long mission with the Smart Controller. Today when I tried to synchronize the flight record I noticed there is NO RECORD for yesterday's flight. I have never seen this before. The only thing that I might have done a little different this last time is to shut off the controller while GO4 was still active and I believe connected to the M2P. Usually I do this the other way around, but I really don't think that should make a difference.

Since I track all my flights on AIRDATA (Healthydrones.com) I do synchronize all of these records - hence my surpise of not finding one that should have been there.
Anyone else notices issues with loosing flight records?

Interesting observation: It turns out the flight has been recorded but with a bogus date of January 18, 2013 !!  --------- DJI please shed some light on this!! Thanks!!

I will re-test this by turning off the controller prematurely to see if it relates to that. It may be that GO4 upon creating the file initially puts in such a date (weird) and will updated to the correct date when the file is closed and for some reason is unable to correctly finish and close the file -- just a guess.

Others have been reporting that their controller won't hold the current date and gets the date you saw.  Even resetting the time/date has not fixed it for them.

I just powered mine up to check battery level.  The date is showing correctly.  The last time I used it, images had the correct dates.

Yes I also think that incorrect time/date in log is due to incorrect date and time of system. I will try today with mine and disabled wifi.

A question.... does the Smart Controller sync all flights (also the ones from the past) ?

Well, I was bitten by this darn DATE BUG:

The date of files that I transferred from the drone to the SC all have the same wrong date.  


They all show


Jan 18, 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This throws off my backup and archiving scheme and is a real pain in the rear.

Yes I can’t find my flight records after using my smart controller either. I’ve always used AirData to view my flight records with my other devices but now I don’t see any new records from my Smart Controller. Very irritating!
