Are the number of flights recorded to be retrieved?  Have not seen it displayed (or I didn't notice it).

Home screen of the GO App, icon in the upper left corner.

Also, maybe a flights per month ratio would be more accurate, as some of us have not had ours for very long. What I think would be even better would be hours instead of flights.

I'm currently at 127 flights with 25hr 1min of actual flight time and 741k feet flown to date.  Maiden voyage with my P3A was back on July 10th so I'm just about to creep up on my 3rd month of ownership.

I started a similar topic about a month ago, got only 9 replies.
So best of luck with your post.  By reading the forum it seems that most posts are reference lens filters, failed updates, and supposed flyaways.I'm over 125 flights now.  My only complaint is a cracked rear black arm screw hole at 75 flights.
As for feedback on your post, what happens to the guys who have voted for 1-10 and then flown another 25 flights in the last week?

Cheers.

Here is my post regarding reliability data for fliers with more than 100 flights:

Yep, I remember that thread but I could not post on it at the time as I was below 100 then.   I can now as I am over 100 flights now.
I remember flying the simulator a bunch in the beginning and I had to delete all those fake flights out of the Pilot Log before I could get a true count.

This survey will not last forever I will eventually stop it. As you say this is a work in progress.
It might be followed by a number 2 survey.

ag0n, you can retrieve you number of flight from you device DJI app Folder dji.pilot - FlightRecord - .
There you will find all the flights record. Each time you start the bird it records a flight. So even if you don't fly let say you are just testing something it record, you might have to erased those files, they are usually very small something like 100-200k instead of thousands of K.
But if you want more detailed information like Total Flight Time, Longest flight time, Farthest Home distance, highest Altitude, total mileage, etc etc Go to  Healthy Drones.
Just upload all your flights record to HealthyDrones and you will get all their statistics.

Yes also you have to delete flight that have been recorded but not flown. Example if you start your bird just to train on something like change ISO etc it will record a flight. The file size will be low like 100 - 200kb. But it should not count as a flight.

Hi.
Tell us more about the flight you have done with the greatest distance of 3531Feet.
You probably did not have Line of Sight at that distance how did you bring it back using FPV or Radar?
What was the environment condition?

hello,

i was flying in Ukraine. no laws yet regarding the usage of UAV's. but to be honest, i was flying from an open & elevated point, so I had pretty good idea where my P3 was the whole time.

it was a mixture of LOS, video feed & the map to navigate out and back. (as always in my case)

the conditions were as such:

Flight time 16m 56s

Landing Battery 24%

Max Altitude 118.8 m

Max Speed 17.81 m/s

Thanks for the Info Flyhigh.
I particularly liked 'the mixture' of LOS, Video Feed or FPV and Radar, which should always be the case.
I live in a mountainous region, I am always scouring for large fields where I could try to extend my range.
After almost 80 flights in 2 months my greatest distance is 201 Meters. I have to say thought that I am a very conservative pilot.

Absolutely agree.  I have about a dozen flights that never left the kitchen table.  Also, if you land, shut down, and immediately take off again that's another flight.  Well, I suppose it is technically, but it breaks the video up into different sections and I wish it didn't.

Not quite sure here. If you land and shut down the motors but not the aircrafts while still having your video on, it would not interrupt the video. If you do turn off completely the aircraft then the video will be
interrupted but as long as the video is on and the power to the aircraft is on, the video will go on.
If you do land and shut down the motor without shutting down the aircraft and then take off again that would be considered as another flight and would be recorded as so. And would be valid as another flight.
Of course this is my point of view, that I gladly share.

It is almost impossible to say.... I've used many differant Apps that don't record my flight data... and I've deleted a bunch of old data from the go App in order to help organize my flights for commercial use.  I'm now keeping track of exact flight hours to help create proper logs for part 107 use. From the previous  2 years however I did not keep track.
I know for a fact I was well over a hundred and most likely less then 250.. So that's what I voted.

And just out of curiosity, why are you doing this survey, and what will you do with the info?

Most of the time - I regard such posts / polls as designed to elevate the authors self opinion !!

They generally are of no real use because they don't use the more relevant criteria such as hours in use etc. vs when bought / acquired etc.

Bit like the How old is your battery !! Fly 10x in 10 years ... or 10x in 1 day ??

Yes, I agree - the results are so skewed too that they are kind of pointless.

230 since March 2017. I use Litchi, so is easy to count in the "Airdata UAV" site.  That is approximately 115 hours in the air.
