I got interested in DashWare for some of my FPV videos and was disappointed to find that ArduPilot was not natively supported in the provided data log conversion profiles and that what was available here and there was sadly out of date. So I updated the required elements and updated a basic set of HUD style gauges for Plane and Copter. Here is an example: https://youtu.be/mdaCKloMmdU of a takeoff and transition of my MiniTalon QuadPlane (view in HD)
A year or more ago I’ve asked Michael Oborne to provide a suitable log export compatible with DashWare, and that is part of MP for quite some time
You just managed to cross the last barrier for a easier usage of Dashware. Congrats
I used Dashware with the Log for a long time. And now restarting again with ArduPlane the new FW 4.1.7 produce a Log which is no more compatible with the Data Structure of Dashware.
Dashware with Data Export from MissionPlanner is no more as easy as it was.
I made a video to show why. My be someone can help.
Thanks for the quick answer. Yes, time is rare in this hobby.
I use mostly videos in Full HD (1080i, 60fps)
Do you mean less Log groups (smaller .csv file) would be recommended to avoid this crazy Gauge reactions?
I read your Wiki. You wrote that Distance to home is not available. So far, I used NTUN.Dist for this.
You recommend a formula to calculate this, I assume this is to edit the .csv File in Excel.
Working with exporting edited files when I save a .csv file, it produces semicolons instead of commas. And it was needed to edit this in a following data sheet.
Do you know how to force Excel to export .csv separating characters as commas?
Thanks for answering. Yes, I know.
And there is: Other Formats and its possible to select 3 different .CSV under FileType.
But nowhere to finde a selection which character ( , or ; ) is used to separate the data.
The semicolon is used.
And to “repair” this by import the .CSV File (with semicolons) and select “no separation”.
Now the semicolon is an editable character which I replace it with exchange by commas.
Then the file is saved again as .CSV. And so the comma is written because it’s a Character and not a Cell separation.

Still hoping that @hwurzburg has time to upgrade the Dashware Converter in MissionPlanner.
