Introduction to FlightData Manager for Parrot Bebop and Parrot Disco drones

Important: Latest version of Bebop2 and Disco firmware is not compatible with Garmin Virb Edit see this section

This FlightData Manager tool is a kind of PC version of My Flights in the Parrot FreeFlight app and a whole lot more, for a PC running Windows 7 and 8 and 10. It can be downloaded for free here.
The tool is developed by Kenth Jensen in his sparetime for fun and further development of his competences.
The tool will generate kml, csv and garmin fit files from flight data from Parrot Bebop1, Bebop2 and Parrot Disco drones, to be used for Garmin Virb Edit for GPS overlays on videos (telemetry).
GPS overlays is the different graphs, gauges and indicators which can be seen on the screendump further down on this page.
When you fly with your Parrot drones the flight data is uploaded to Parrots Cloud, and this tool can download the flight data directly from this Parrot Cloud.

Screendump of the tool

The videos below is recorded with Parrot Bebop and Parrot Disco, and edited with the Garmin Virb Edit software. You don't need the Garmin Virb camera, only the free software made by them. It can be downloaded here:
http://www.garmin.com/en-US/shop/downloads/virb-edit


This tool adds a lot of info to the GPS overlay (telemetry) on the videoes like:
  1. Speed in km/h or mph
  2. Altitude (height) in meter or feet
  3. Altitude over ground in meter or feet
  4. Drone distance in meters or feet (the distance between yourself and the drone)
  5. Distance flown in meters or feet
  6. Battery level of the Bebop drone in %
  7. Pitch and Roll of the Bebop in degrees, Pitch is when drone flies forwards or backwards, Roll is when drone flies sideways
  8. GPS track, shows a small track of the flight and a dot indicates the current position on the track
  9. True orientation of Bebop, if the Bebop is hovering steady and only rotates around, this indicator will indicate the direction of the Bebop, and if the Bebop is flying backwards or sideways, it will still indicate the direction the drone is pointing and not the direction it is flying in.
  10. Wifi signal level
  11. Number of satellites

Screendump of a video created with this tool:


Kml files can be seen in Google Earth. Both position of Controller and Drone can be seen, and Drone flight path can both be displayed in 2D and 3D

The flight data is generated automatically by the Bebop or Disco drone during flight and can afterwards be loaded directly from the Parrot Cloud by entering the username and password for the Parrot Cloud.
Big thanks to Ramon Out for figuring out how to access the Parrot cloud webservice,

Click to see large image
In the tool you will get a very detailed list of all your flights, such as dateTime, duration, controller type, hw ver, sw ver, estimated address, and the most advanced thing is that the tool downloads all available flights one by one and analyze the battery usage, max altitude, max speed, max distance and distance flown.

When this analyze is complete of all the flights, the user can sort on any parameter he wants, this makes it easy to find the flight with the highest altitude or the longest distance flown etc.

All these data's can be exported to Excel, if the user wants to keep a more detailed logbook of his flights

In the list it can also be seen if each flight is public or private, and it can be changed in the menu which pops up when right clicking on a flight.
Furthermore a comment can be added to a flight also by rightclicking the flight or double clicking the comment section in the list. This is useful if the user wants to keep track of which batteries is used for various flights etc.

Another screendump of the tool


Example of kml file loaded in Google Earth

The kml file for Google Earth uses different colors for different altitudes, these altitude limits and colors can be configured in a menu in the tool as on the screendump below.
Up to 15 different altitude limits and colors can be selected, that way you can choose to have a different color for each 10 meters of altitude when considering a max altitude of the Bebop of 150 meters. The default setting is 6 different colors as used on the screendump above and below.

All public flights from other users and own public or private flights can be seen and loaded into the tool from a map like below. For public flights it is also possible to choose to see only flights containing shared pictures or shared videos.
https://sites.google.com/site/pud2gpxkmlcsv/home/MapPublicFlights.jpg
When loading a flight containing a shared picture or video, either a public flight from another user or a private flight, the pictures and videos can be seen directly inside the FlightData Manager tool, like below:


Problem in Garmin Virb Edit
There is an error in version 5.1.0 of Garmin Virb Edit, so make sure to use version 5.1.1 or newer of Virb Edit.
Furthermore the videos generated with the latest Bebop2 firmware 4.2.1 and Disco firmware 1.4.1 cannot be opened in Virb Edit due to some missing codecs.
You'll have to convert your current .mp4 to another copy of an .mp4 through the completely free VLC media player by following this guide.


Step by step guide for creating your own video
The following guide is for using Garmin Virb Edit version 4.2.1.0, in other versions the UI can be different.

First generate Garmin Fit file via FlightData Manager tool:
  1. Make sure you have created an account for the Parrot Cloud under "My Flights" in the FreeFlight Pro app on your tablet / PC
  2. Download and install Garmin Virb Edit, link (only the first time)
  3. Download this FlightData Manager tool, link (only the first time)
  4. Unzip the downloaded file somewhere, on the desktop or similar (only the first time)
  5. Install the FlightData Manager tool by executing the exe file unzipped in the above step.
  6. Install the templates for Garmin Virb by pressing the button 'Install Garmin Virb GPS Templates' in the FlightData Manager tool, select if you want to use template using feet or meters (only the first time)
  7. Make a flight with the Bebop and wait for the flight to be available under the "My Flights" in the FreeFlight Pro app, make sure the tablet / phone is connected to your wifi for the flight data to be uploaded
  8. Copy the mp4 video from the Bebop into a folder on your PC
  9. In the FlightData Manager tool, press 'Load data from Parrot Cloud'
  10. Enter your username and password for the Parrot Cloud and press 'Get list of flights.....'
  11. Locate the flight you want to load, based on the time, date and estimated address, if the flight is not in the list, make sure your tablet / PC is connected to your wifi, and maybe wait a while for the flight to be available, double click to select a flight
  12. A graph of the flight is being shown, containing Altitude, Speed, Battery and Distance, if you hold the mouse over the graph, you will get more details of the graph, you can switch to map view by the button in the left lower corner.
  13. Press 'Export data to files' select where to save the 3 files, a fit file for Garmin Virb Edit, a kml file for Google Earth and a csv file for Excel, a good idea is to export the files to the same folder as you copied the mp4 video file earlier.

Then generate GPS overlay to video in Garmin Virb Edit:

  1. Open 'Virb Edit'
  2. Press 'Create Video'
  3. Pick a name for your video, it will be used for filename of your video later
  4. Now you should be in the 'Media Library', press the 'Import Clips & Photos'
  5. Press 'Import Other'
  6. Select the mp4 video from the Bebop
  7. Press 'Import only'
  8. Click 'OK, when it's indicating that the library is updated, now the video is added to the Media Library.
  9. Drag and drop the video to the area with the text 'Drag and drop clips here to add them to your video'
  10. Press the 'G-Metrix' in the left side followed by pressing the 'Import G-Metrix' button
  11. Now press 'On My Computer' to the left  followed by 'Browse' in the middle of the window.
  12. Now select the fit file created by the FlightData Manager tool, select either the one in meters or the one in feet.
  13. A Gps track shall be displayed now, if everything looks correct, then press 'Use this Log'
  14. Click the 'Overlays' button on the left side
  15. If not already selected, click the 'Templates' tab on the top.
  16. Locate the templates called 'Bebop template 1' to 'Bebop Template 10' by holding the mouse over the different templates, then click on the template
  17. The different gauges is now added to the video, if you want, you can delete or move the various gauges on the screen and save it into a new template
  18. Click the play icon to see your video, here the video is not shown 100 % correctly and video can be really slow in updating.
  19. Sometimes the video and GPS overlays are not completely in sync, you can manually sync it the following way: Click the 'G-Metrix' button on the left side and select 'G-Metrix Sync' in the right side, after you have synchronized it correctly press 'Done'
  20. Now export the video by clicking 'Export' in the upper right hand side.
  21. Select 'HD 1080p' and '60 fps' for highest quality, even though the Bebop only saves video at 30 fps, it seems like the quality on YouTube will be lower if you only select '30 fps'
  22. Select where to save the video under 'Pick export location' and press 'Export'
  23. Now wait somewhere between half an hour and up to 3 hours depending on the length of the video and the speed of your PC
  24. That's it, now your video is finish, simple as that :o)


A very dedicated user, Helder Hugo Gonçalves, have created the video below, describing how to generate videos with this program, Thanks a lot to Helder.


Another user have created this excellent and very detailed video which describes every single steps for creating the overlays, thanks a lot to MrKent.com


Templates for Garmin Virb Edit
If you would like to use the GPS overlay templates created especially for Bebop drone, then just click on the button "Install Garmin Virb GPS overlay Templates to PC" in the FlightData Manager tool, and select if you want the templates using meters and km/h or the templates using mph and feet.

In Garmin Virb Edit you should select one of the 6 templates called 'Bebop Template 1' to 'Bebop Template 10', see screendump of these 8 templates below.

If you instead use on of the default templates in Garmin Virb, a whole lot of the data will not be shown correctly, unless you really know what you are doing.

If you decide to create your own template you need the following info (but if you just use one of the two Bebop templates you can just ignore the following):
In order to make it independently of the units selected in the Garmin Virb settings menu, speed, altitude and distance is not reported as speed, altitude and distance in the Garmin Fit file, which would give a lot of problems if the user have made a wrong setting.
Instead the various data is reported the following way in the Garmin Fit file:
  • 'Speed' is reported as 'Stance Time' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Running)
  • 'Altitude' for text is reported as 'Stance Time Percent' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Running)
  • 'Altitude over ground' is reported as "Engine Fuel Rate" in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All OBD-II Sensors)
  • 'Altitude' for graph is reported 'Elevation' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Position)
  • 'Drone distance' is reported as 'Engine RPM' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All OBD-II Sensors)
  • 'Distance flown' is reported as 'Power' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Sensors)
  • 'Battery %' is reported as 'Cadance' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Sensors)
  • 'Orientation of drone' is reported as 'Aviation Track Angle' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Aviation)
  • 'Pitch' and 'Roll' is reported as 'Pitch' and 'Roll' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> All Aviation)
  • 'WiFi signal level' (only for Bebop2) is reported as 'HeartRate' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> Sensors -> Heart Rate)
  • 'Number of GPS satellites' (only for Bebop2) is reported as 'verticalOscillation' in Fit file (is found in Garmin Virb under Gauges -> Running -> Vertical Oscilation)
As earlier mentioned the templates can be installed from the FlightData Manager program by clicking a single button, but if you would like only the templates without the FlightData Manager, it can be downloaded here, see ReadMe.txt file inside zip file for details of where to extract the zip files on both PC and Mac.

Getting pud files out of the drone
In the latest version of the tool, the flight data can be loaded directly from the Drone Academy, but if you prefer to use the pud files directly from the Bebop, then follow this procedure

Missing flights in the Drone Academy
In order to get flight data to be uploaded from the Parrot Bebop to the Drone Academy, please follow this procedure

Change language of Garmin Virb Edit
If you add your own gauges in Garmin Virb and if the language in Windows is set different than English, then the title of the gauges will also be shown in your local language on your video.
To prevent that and make sure the title of the gauge is shown in English, you need to change the language of Garmin Virb to English, here it is described how to do it


FlightData Manager on Mac / iOS:
The tool is developed in C# .NET 4.5, and since it's a Microsoft product, It cannot be executed on an iOS Mac computer without doing some special steps:
For Mac users with Intel Core it should be possible to use Windows via Boot Camp.
Another option is to use a "PC simulator" called "Paralles Desktop" which is a Virtual Machine that simulates Windows 7 on a Mac, this has been proven by another user to work on a Mac together with this tool.
A third option is a program called Windows Virtual box, I have heard about other users using this program with this tool.
Since I'm not a Mac user, this is not something I have tried for myself, but several users have used it with success.
I have received this guide from a Mac user:

So, I run a MacBook Pro and wanted to use the tool to edit my Parrot Bebop 2 videos, here’s how I got it all working:

- OSX 10.12.6
- Parallels v12 running a Windows 10VM
- installed FlightData Manager on the Windows 10VM
- Installed the Mac version of Garmin Virb Edit on the Mac OS

When I want to edit a video;
- sync video with Mac via Photos app
- run VM and sync flight data with the FlightData Manager app
- following your steps extract the flight data files
- copy those over to the Mac
- edit in Virb Edit

One thing I found - the templates and gauges need to be copied over to the Mac as follows:

If a gauge bundle, move folder contents (exclude the root folder) into VIRB Edit's designated custom gauges folder. 

Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\VIRB Edit\Telemetry\Widgets 

Mac: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Garmin/VIRB Edit/Telemetry/Widgets

If a template bundle, move folder contents in "Templates" subfolder into VIRB Edit's designated custom templates folder. 

Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\VIRB Edit\Telemetry\Templates 

Mac: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Garmin/VIRB Edit/Telemetry/Templates


Trojan / Virus warning:
Some virus scanners, Windows Defender and the new Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10 thinks in some cases that this tool is a trojan or virus and either warns the user or simply refuses to download it.
I can guarantee that this tool is 100 percent safe and doesn't contain any virus or trojans.
Some of the reasons for the warnings is that the FlightData Manager tool can automatically install templates for Garmin Virb Edit. When this is done the FlightData Manager unzips a lot of files from it's own memory into the Garmin Virb installation folder, which some virus scanners consider as a suspicious behaviour.
If windows Edge browser in Windows 10 refuses to download it, it can be solved by using either the old Internet Explorer, FireFox or another internet browser.
Google Chrome is also known for refusing to download the files at all.
False positives for virus scanners is a pretty common problem for small developers, just see this link

Version 2.1.1: 2016/01/03:
* Switched to another InstallShield builder to try to prevent trojan warnings from Windows defender (no new features added in the FlightData Manager)


Version 2.1.0: 2016/01/03:
* Now it's possible to show all public flights from a specific user on map
* Window size and positions are being saved, so when FlightData Manager is opened, the same window size and positions is used as earlier


Version 2.0.3: 2015/12/30:
* Better synchronisation of Pitch, Roll and Orientation when Bebop2 gps positions are misaligned
* List of flights now supports multiple selection of flights, so it's now possible to change visibility or delete several flights at once
* Misspelling of feets now corrected to feet in both the FlightData Manager itself and in the templates for Garmin Virb Edit. To use the new templates, the new templates needs to be re-installed by pressing the button in the FlightData Manager tool


Version 2.0.2: 2015/11/28:
* FlightData Manager can now compensate for shifted and erroneous GPS data in flight data when using Bebop2 and prevent spikes in the speed chart when Template 6 is used in Garmin Virb


Version 2.0.1: 2015/11/26:
* Bebop2 is now supported
* List of flights now also indicates if drone is Bebop1 or Bebop2
* Number of GPS satellites and Wi-Fi level is added to chart. It seems like this data is only included in Bebop2. In order not to pollute the chart these values are not shown as default, but can be shown by clicking the checkbox below the chart.
* Number of GPS satellites, Wi-Fi level, flying state and alert state is also added to both kml and csv file
* Flying state and alert state is now translated from just a number to their actual meaning, both in kml and csv file
* Public flights on map can be filtered to show either both Bebop1 and Bebop2, only Bebop1 or only Bebop2 flights.
* Search field in public flights map is added below the map, so now it's easy to jump to a specific country or city to see public flights in that area.
* Comments and flight statistics is now stored in AppData folder instead of Temp folder, to prevent loosing all comments if a cleanup tool cleans up all temporary files.
When upgrading from earlier version to this one, you will loose your comments if you have assingned any comments to your flights.
You can restore these by opening the FlightData Manager program, close it down again, then open a file explorer, type %temp%/FlightDataManager in the address field, then locate the file FlightComments.txt and copy it, then type %AppData%/FlightDataManager in the address field and paste the file.
If you also copy the file FlightStat.txt from the old folder to the new folder, it don't have to download and analyze all your flights again.


Version 1.54.1: 2015/11/15:
* Name of program changed from the geeky name "Pud2GpxKmlCsv" to "FlightData Manager", no new features or bug fixes included, only a shiny new name.
When upgrading from earlier version to this one, you will loose your comments if you have assingned any one to your flights. You can restore these by opening a file explorer, type %temp%/pud2GpxKmlCsv in the address field, then locate the file FlightComments.txt and copy it, then type %temp%/FlightDataManager in the address field and paste the file.
If you also copy the file FlightStat.txt from the old folder to the new folder, it don't have to download and analyze all your flights again.

Version 53: 2015/11/11:
* Bug corrected which caused program to crash if user right clicks in flight list and selects "Open Flight".

Version 52: 2015/11/03:
* Bug corrected in Garmin Fit file which caused synchronization problem of G-Metrix in Garmin Virb Edit, since the Fit file was considered as being approximately 17 hours long.

Version 51: 2015/10/29:
* Bug corrected which caused orientation, pitch and roll info to be missing at the end of videos in Garmin Virb Edit.

Version 50: 2015/10/23:
* A lot of more details is now added in the Kml file for Google Earth. You can now click on a point of the flight track and see a whole lot of details such as time, altitude, speed, battery, orientation, pitch, roll etc.
* Added possibility for making time offset in GPS data to precisely synchronizing the video and the GPS overlays in Garmin Virb Edit. In earlier version the GPS overlays was always 900 ms behind the video, so when drone started to rotate on the video, the orientation gauge started to rotate 900 ms later.
* Various small bugs corrected.

Version 49: 2015/10/16:
* Now Json files is supported by the tool, in the coming release of FreeFlight App flight data can be sent to user via mail as an attached json file.
* Map showing flight track now adds a S and an E marker to indicate the start end the end of the flight.
* Shared picture scaled correctly when a 180 degrees fisheye is shown.
* Comments can now be added or edited by doubleclicking the comment field in the flight list

Version 48: 2015/10/09:
* In this version it is now possible to link a YouTube video to a flight, and remove linked pictures and videos from a flight.
In the FreeFlight app from Parrot it is only possible to link a YouTube video to a flight which you have just uploaded from the FreeFlight app, this makes it impossible to edit a video, and maybe add GPS overlays via Garmin Virb Edit etc.
Now it is possible with the Pud2GpxKmlCsv, you can edit and manually upload your video to YouTube and then link the video to the flight afterwards.
When you link a flight with a youTube video, the video will be visible by everybody if the visibility of the flight
is set to public.
The linked video will be visible both in this program and in the FreeFlight App
Please do not abuse this functionality and only link your own video generated with a Parrot Bebop with your flight.
* Furthermore it is possible to see and change the visibility of a flight, can be either public or private, when it's private the flight can only be seen by yourself, and when set to public it is visible by everybody.

Version 47: 2015/10/05:
* New "Bebop Template 6" added.
* Graph in tool improved, minute and seconds are now shown on X-axis.
* Map showing public and own flights improved, smaller cluster size, zoom level, lat and long is shown under map.

Version 46: 2015/10/02:
* New improved map to show own flights and all public flights, now an option can be set to only show public flights containing either shared pictures or shared videos or both.
Shared pictures and videos can be seen directly inside the Pud2GpxKmlCsv tool, one way to do it, is to right click on the flight containing shared pics or video in the list.
* Now it is also possible to assign comments to flights, this is also done by right clicking a flight in the flight list, these comments will also be included if flights is exported as a csv file.

Version 45: 2015/09/24:
* Yet another new custom made templates for Garmin Virb Edit is added, 'Bebop Template 5'. So now 5 custom made Bebop templates exists.
* Value seperator in csv files is now fixed so it should work correctly with Excel anywhere in the world, without any manual steps.

Version 44: 2015/09/21:
* A new custom made templates for Garmin Virb Edit is added, 'Bebop Template 4', this one is a lot different than the other templates, this time with real gauges for speed and altitude, not only text with values as earlier. So now 4 custom made Bebop templates exists.

Version 43: 2015/09/20:
* All own flights can now be seen and loaded from a map, so now it's easy to get an overview of all the locations where you have flown with your Bebop.
This is done in the menu to load flight data from Drone Academy.

Version 42: 2015/09/15:
* Gpx files which was removed in version 39 is partly supported again, since some users are depending on them for other tools, these Gpx files shall not be used for Garmin Virb, use Fit file instead
Minor bug corrected which caused program to stop for some users.

Version 41: 2015/09/12:
* Added support to see negative altitude on graph, earlier all negative values was ignored by setting them to zero.

Version 40: 2015/09/11:
* Two new custom made templates for Garmin Virb Edit is added, 'Bebop Template 2' and 'Bebop Template 3', so now 3 custom made Bebop templates exists
It will be a good idea to delete the old templates before installing the new ones

Version 39: 2015/09/07:
* Major update. 'Distance flown' and 'Drone distance' in Garmin Virb is now both shown in meters or feets, 'Orientation of drone' can now turn correctly from 1 degree to 359 degree and back again, Speed is now shown with one decimal.
A Garmin Fit file is now generated for Garmin Virb Edit instead of a Gpx file.
Selection of meters/feets in program is removed, instead two fit files are generated, one with values in meters and km/h and another fit file with values in feets and mph.
New templates needs to be installed in Garmin Virb (they shall be installed from the Pud2GpxKmlCsv program)
Currently it is only Template 1 which is supported, Template 2 cannot be used since the templates is not backwards compatible.
Template 2 will be added as soon as possible

Version 38: 2015/08/18:
* Distance Flown value added to flight list loaded from Drone Academy, so now it is also possible to sort on the distance flown value, so it is easy to find the flight where the highest distance is flown. This value is also included when data is exported to a csv file (Excel)
* Several bugs solved regarding sorting of list and flight loading from maps.

Version 37: 2015/08/17:
* Distance Flown value in meters / feets added to graphs, so now it can be seen how far the Bebop have flown in total during the flight.

Version 36: 2015/08/16:
* New gauges for "Bebop template 1" for Garmin Virb, now it also shows 'Distance Flown', 'Start date and Time', 'Duration' and value for orientation. Remember to press "Install Garmin Virb Templates" in Pud2GpxKmlCsv to install the new template.

Version 35: 2015/08/15:
* Stability problem when showing and loading public flights on map is solved

Version 34: 2015/08/14:
* All public flights from other users can be seen and loaded into the tool from a map in the 'Load data from Drone Academy' menu, just click on the 'Switch to all public flights on Maps' in that menu.
This is not the final solution for this, there are some stability and performance issues for this which will be solved very soon.
* The tool now automatically checks if a newer version is available and informs the user if that's the case.

Version 33: 2015/08/03:
* Bug corrected which caused load flight data menu to freeze when a flight had a duration of zero seconds

Version 32: 2015/08/03:

* A whole lot of small optimizations and improvements

Version 30: 2015/07/29:
* Support for exporting to a csv file (Excel) of the table in the menu to load flight data from Drone Academy.

Version 29: 2015/07/28:
* Improvement of menu to load flight data from Drone Academy, now it's possible to sort all the flights by clicking on a column header, that makes it easy to find the flights with the highest altitude or fastest speed or the maximum distance to drone. It is also easy to find all the flights with a duration less than 10 seconds and delete them, to free up space in Drone Academy etc. furthermore all flights are on one single page with a vertical scrollbar if needed.

Version 28: 2015/07/20:
* Major improvement when loading flight data from Drone Academy, max altitude, max speed, max distance and battery usage can be seen directly in the list without having to open each single flight, this gives a better overview of the flights.
