You have to sync your flights with DJI in the GO app.

Also, how do you change from the "beginner" status? I've only had the drone and the account for a couple of days, so I don't expect to be moved up, but just wondering how do you move up from beginner?

That is only a forum rank which depends on the number of points accumulated

You would sync your flight records from the Go4 app, along with logging out and back into the DJI Forum. It should populate then.

I agree - I think it populates after a few flights... it may take a hour or so I think.

It certainly is a bit of a mystery how the flight distance updates. I followed the suggestions on syncing and logging in and out and while it changes or increases my flight distance, it's still far from current. I appreciate y'all taking the time to provide answers.

I'd like to point out that the Flight Distance only records what you flew in the actual DJI App.  If you switch to Litchi etc then it's not logged.

It also doesn't add distance if your app crashes in the middle of a flight.  That is any part of the flight before the crash gets wiped. It doesn't show up in the flight log on the app either, so... yeah.

Unfortunately, there's no way (I know of) to sync the Mavic's logs to the ones in the app.

If you used multiple phones/tablets be sure to sync all.

Ok I've now synced all devices and logged in and out of the forum to no avail. It changes, but I can't figure out the logic of it. I've had more than 500k for a few weeks now and it's hasn't moved from 159k for some time. I'm thinking there must be a hitch on with DJI's interface on cloud and this forum. I have no expertise whatsoever on this matter, so my guess as to the cause is pretty much worthless..
