Connect Marlyn to your PC

To download the Autopilot and PPK Logs, first connect the Drone to your PC using the supplied USB-C cables. The USB connection to the left of the batteries corresponds to the autopilot, and the connection to the right of the batteries corresponds to the PPK module. 

Initiate Download

Once the drone is connected you can then press the ‘Download’ tab within Geotagger.

Once the PPK Module is connected, you then have the option to download the individual log files by pressing ‘Download’, those file which have already been downloaded will have a suffix ‘downloaded’. The files will be downloaded to the folder ‘2 - PPK Rover Log’, and once downloaded you have the option to remove the file by pressing ‘Erase’. Once full, the PPK module will react by erasing the oldest file, so erasing is not necessary to maintain space for further flights.

Once the Autopilot is connected, the files can be downloaded individually by pressing ‘Download’. To identify individual flights, the file name has the following convention YYYY-MM-DD HHhMM UTC Flightlog X. The files will be downloaded to the folder ‘3 – AP Log’, and once downloaded you have the option to remove the file by pressing ‘Erase all’. 

After this step it is also advised to insert the RINEX data from your base station or VRS (if using) and upload it to the folder ‘4 – PPK Base’. 

After the data is downloaded you can disconnect the drone from the USB ports.
