Hello, there. Thanks for your inquiry. There are two ways to transfer files to the mobile devices
Transfer the files in the aircraft:
1. Android user: connect the phone to the aircraft and read the files in the Android system.
2. iOS: Due to the system restriction, can not read the file directly
Transfer the files in the SD card:
Use a Card Reader.

But if I can take videos out of my Action 2 , with similar specs ( bitrate , video quality , etc ) , why not on Avata?

Had the same on the first flight and lost my recordings. After a format everything works perfect but it seems you have to format the internal storage before a first flight.

Just did this yesterday... with everything powered up, connect Gogggles 2 via USB-C to Phone...(whatever cable you need for this)
Open Fly app, click media button and then you can transfer media to phone to share. (as long as you have enough storage space on the phone)

Enjoy.

And yes... format the SD card in the drone... it's special like that.

When you say phone do you mean iPhone? ALso, when you say "click media" button in Fly app, where is this button? All i see is a button called Album and one called SkyPixel on bottom left

Are you using an iPhone or android to transfer the content on the sd card? My iPhone won’t pick up the sd card in the goggles it says it is not recognised by this mobile device no matter what cord I use

I believe you cannot transfer to iphone. You can transfer to Android phone. I just don't understand why. I can do that for other DJI drones, but not Avata.

I recorded a video with my Avata and I was able to transfer a video from the drone to my iPhone through the DJI Fly app.  I don't know how I did it, or why it worked this one time, but I can't seem to get it to do it again.  Which is annoying.

Why does the avata not uses the fly app

My mini dji and osmo all work with the fly app

Yes, it was so complicate to transfer the footage to iphone. If we can get back the video from Avata, we can use DJI app to modify and add music in the video

Did anyone find out how we can transfer video directly from dji avata to iPhone ? Or any idea to transfer to iPhone ? I tried using PC and iTunes, it doesn’t work for me .

iPad Pro 11"  (USB-C connector)
-- Connecting cable direct to the aircraft allows you to access videos using the Files app, can play or transfer direct from aircraft to iPhone / MacBook using AirDrop through iPad
-- Connecting cable direct to the goggles 2 does NOT allow you to access videos using the Files app, if aircraft is powered on DJI Fly app states "file preview through mobile device not supported on current aircraft"
-- Connecting cable direct to goggles 2 and running LivePreview during flight will cache a low quality copy of the goggles video on the iPad, can view / save after turning aircraft OFF

iPhone 13 Max  (Lightening connector)
-- Connecting cable direct to aircraft does NOT power the aircraft flight controller, no file access in the Files or DJI Fly app
-- Turning on the aircraft still does NOT allow file access
-- Connecting cable direct to goggles 2 and running LivePreview during flight will cache a low quality copy of the goggles video on the iPhone, can view / save after turning aircraft OFF

MacBook Pro 16"  (USB-C connector)
-- Connecting cable to aircraft creates two folders in Finder (SD_CARD, INTERNAL)
-- Connecting cable to goggles 2 does nothing, have to pull SD card


It seems there are pretty big inconsistencies between Avata firmware and previous aircraft, almost like the Avata firmware was rushed out and they would add these common features in later
-- Other aircraft can preview album via DJI Fly app, but not Avata
-- Older Goggles V2 can tell the aircraft to record h.265, but not the newer Goggles 2
