    I was wondering if anyone knows how to edit pilot logs in the GO App. I flew a borrowed inspire for a shoot and the registered owner is listed in my pilots logs as having flown the sortie. This coupled with the fact I have had 3 inspires makes the pilot logs a mess. On one hand it's convenient to have digital records of flown sorties but it's a mess to consolidate. Any advice?
    Cheers

    My advice would be, don't bother.
    Keep a hard copy (written) log of flight hours.
    Personally, I do not keep a single flight log in DJI Go (I erase them all) so that makes me a novice pilot I think! :p
    I'm not interested in 'badges' or 'rewards' or daft 'accolades' from an app, only my logged flights for submission to the aviation authority!

    Thanks and I agree re the accolades or badges etc. However, I often don't have time for paper logs and I also have 5 pilots who fly under my UOC. I am required by CASA occasionally to submit records for an audit and it's a lot easier printing screenshots. If all I did all day was fly then a pilots log book would work but I'm also a DOP.

    Understood.
    I'm afraid there is no way to actually edit the flights in DJI Go. The log is locked to the username/aircraft.
    The best you can do is erase them. They cannot be 'transferred' to another Inspire or user.

    I wish I could delete the log, however I can delete the individual flights but the aircraft and other pilot still remain in my log. Is there a way to just delete the whole aircraft/pilot that you know of? Thanks for your advice by the way

    Missing the point. As said above, delete and ignore AFTER exporting all of the valuable information to a usable conformed database. I personally find great use of the available kml files for each of my flights using Google Earth and the data properly organized in a database. Pretty simple, really and very portable on my phone as well. Very similar to a fishing log keeping track of successful trips highlighting all of the variables on the flight. I now have over 350 flights on record and could show you a 3d record of each flight. Oh, and yes, it is all properly entered in my handwriting on my OF log!

    Mate I didn't miss any point at all. I do back up my logs and can export to an Excel sheet. What I'm having a problem with is DELETING logs. Individual flights can be deleted but a whole aircraft cannot. What's left is the aircraft and its registered owner (not me) and zero hours. I too have around 300 hours logged and multiple copies. I however like to access the flights and their data from the app. All I was asking was can an "aircraft" and it's "registered owner" be deleted or transferred off the app.
