You can export and upload your flight logs so our support team can troubleshoot any issues or questions you may have. To do so, you may either upload your Skydio X10 logs directly to Customer Support or export them to a flash drive. We recommend uploading to the Skydio Support cloud as the preferred method for exporting flight logs for a quicker assessment of your issue. Skydio will never review your videos or data without your permission. Do not reformat or factory reset your Skydio drone prior to contacting our support team.

[warning text="If the drone body or the cameras have been damaged in any way, please do not attempt to fly until Customer Support has investigated the logs and determined a resolution."]

[warning] Powering off the drone immediately after a landing or a crash will result in missing data in the flight logs. Always allow your drone to complete post-flight operations before powering off. Removing, swapping, or altering file names on the media card will impact the availability of the flight logs.[/warning]
