Meant to have added:
Compiled and uploaded via arduino ide
cli used in latest version of MP ie. V1.2.8
This is now partly working!
After couple of flights with v2.72b the latest MP cli does not report a missing dataFlash!
But no logs, did and erase which was sucsessful, then a further quick test hover.
Back in cli dataFlash still accepted (no message)
but still no logs to download.
Q: What does it need to initiate logs?
Logs are enabled as seen below:
Is there a trigger? Throttle opening percentage, or something?
If it just needs powering up or arming then the logs aren't working!!!

I'm still waiting for my 2.5. I was able to get my apm2 dataflash working finally with some fixes I did and pushed out to 2.7.2. What I found was the top half of the dataflash would never erase and there was a funny bug with the chip detect. I'll try these fixes on APM2.5 as soon as I get my hands on one.
ok Thanks for the work Jason,
If you want me to test any code then just ask...
Just to let you know!
Cli has gone back to reporting "No dataFlash inserted" again
Been having this same problem with 2.7.3 on my APM2.Sometimes it will report no dataflash inserted and no logs stored. For some reason when this happens the optical flow also fails to initialise.
It's hard to pin down when this happens. t's obviously managing to read the dataflash in the field sometimes, as I just found logs from several flights that I thought had never been recorded.
