Offline Tools

There are a couple of offline tools within the MAVLink package that can be used for a postflight analysis.

mavgraph.py

This can graph any of the flight data.

mavgraph.py flight.tlog VFR_HUD.alt

Other than specifying the tlog file, the commands are exactly the same as the graph module in MAVProxy.

mavtogpx.py

Exports the GPS points in a logfile to the GPX format, which can be read by Google Earth.

mavtogpx.py flight.tlog

mavparms.py

Finds the APM parameters in a logfile and displays them on the console.

mavparms.py flight.tlog

mavflighttime.py

Prints out the total time spent in the air. Note that a threshold of 3m/s defines the difference between air time and ground time. This can be changed by the --groundspeed= argument.

mavflighttime.py flight.tlog

mavflightmodes.py

Prints out the timestamp and name of each flight mode change in a logfile.

mavflightmodes.py flight.tlog
