Retrieving Current Dataflash

Hey Guys,

I would like to be able to pull the dataflash without cycling power. Or I would even be inclined to cycle power without physically pulling batteries. Any chance there is a way to either cycle power on command or pull the dataflash from the current mission?

I tried using the preflight reboot apparently it is not that easy.

Anyway, a bit of help would be much appreciated.

There is nothing in ardupilot that stops you downloading the current dataflash log over MAVLink. It will stop logging (so the log will stop growing after you download it), but you certainly can download it if you want to.
Cheers, Tridge

Thanks Tridge. I must have made a mistake somewhere along the way. I deleted all the dataflash logs when I was connected by USB then I switched over to telemetry. When I tried to download the log over mav it said there were no logs.

I’ll run through it again though. More than likely something I am doing wrong.

Thanks again for your response.
