Some thoughts on flight log files: one way that seems to work to get the log files off my Android phone w/o clipping is to zip the 'BreezeCamLog' folder on the phone, then xfer that zipped file to your PC via whatever (usb, bt, google drive...). You can unzip on your PC and should have all the logs complete. To zip on Android, start the My Files app, nav to Device Storage, tap & hold the BreezeCamLog folder to select (green check), tap the '3-spot' menu upper right and select Zip. That will create zip copy of the folder as is. You can then xfer to a PC & unzip. You open the log files into Excel using comma delimiting and should see all log entries in the matrix with top row header descriptions in place. Yell if you want an xls (excel) copy of an example log to look at and I'll stick one up here.

Sorry if someone already mentioned this on another thread...

Thanks for the pointer, sounds like a great way to do this without using extra software/apps.

Now use a program like Q500log2kml by h-elsner at Meine private Homepage - Programmierung, Kopter, Bilder in his downloads section for getting more out of the files. It is a stand-alone program and works great for the Breeze and several other Yuneec aircraft. Best of all is it is free to use. Be sure to use a fresh copy from your Android device as Excel tags the file and renders it useless in Q500log2kml.

I just caught your tip on Mr. Elsner's decoder app. It works great, and having the battery status graphed along with altitude is really smart. I can see difference in battery performance, another good thing to keep track of. What a great tool!

Thx!

I updated my controller yesterday and today when i went to fly my breeze it took off like a bat out of **** and started to circle the back yard, it went about 100ft and crashed into a tree and broke an arm off of the fuselage. I tried to send in my flight log and kept getting an anomally message. So frusterated!! Anyhow I managed to glue it back on and tried to fly it and it kept doing the same thing even when I used my phone to fly instead of the controller. I don't know if i want to buy another one and use this one for parts, or just buy something else like a parrot bee bop.
did you ever find a fix for that condition? same as 2 of my Breeze drone the second was right out of the box

The major cause for flyaways like this is failure to do a proper compass calibration away from objects and electronics that effect the magnetic field. The other is flying around large metal objects or power lines.

I have some trouble with stability in my yard in Michigan. It is long and narrow with the power line about 10 feet south of my driveway and large pine trees on the side with the power lines and huge silver maples on the opposite side of the yard and overhanging the yard. I have to keep a close eye on the Breeze as the weak and reflected GPS signals play havoc with the stabilization.

If you live in an area with small residential yards, you need to take your Breeze to a large open field to calibrate the compass. You only have to do this once as long as you fly within 50 miles of your calibration site.
