Flight Logs🆕

A guide for assisting in detailed mission logs for operators to analyze and troubleshoot mission issues with the ability to download and share logs for further review.
FlytBase now provides detailed Flight Logs that consist of several sections such as Overview, Playback, Media, Annotations, and Alarms. With these Flight Logs, the operator can get a comprehensive view of the entire mission and review important information such as flight path, altitude, speed, device information and more. Additionally, the Media section allows the operator to view images and videos captured during the mission. The Annotations section shows the operator's added comments/notes to specific events during the mission, while the Alarms section provides information on any safety or system warnings that occurred during the mission. Finally, the operator can download and share the Flight Logs with other team members or stakeholders for further analysis and review.
