Log Report

The Log feature in Pipe allows the user to create mission reports, that contain basic information (like mission duration, UAV ID, configuration name, date, etc.) and any relevant events, along with a timestamp.

If you are interested in logging of variables for post-flight analysis, please visit the Post Flight section.

The log menu can be accessed from the drop down list on the top left of the screen:

By default, Pipe starts logging when started, and will save the log when closed. It is also possible to stop/pause the log recording using the play/pause buttons.
