Jeti Spin Box - How to?

I must be an idiot (I am a self confessed Certified Dunny), because I can't figure out how to read recorded flight data with the Jeti Spin Box. Near as I can tell, I need to connect it after a flight, with the receiver power turned off. That's the only way I've been able to get into what looked like flight data mode, but none of the data seems to reflect actual flight conditions.

I tried it with my Spin 200, used with a Neu 2215 on 12S, and it said something like 35 amps, which might be right if there was a 1 in front of the 35

Can some kind soul please give me some clues?

Not sure what's going on.
With the Spin11, I pull the ESC servo connector off the Rx and fit it the right way round in the lower servo connector hole on the Spinbox. Then power up the ESC and follow the menu options into the 'Measure' section, scrolling down for the last flight data log record.

Does it store data from multiple flights?

Do you mean the main power to the ESC. or the little receiver power jack in the Spin Box?

I know I'm toopid, but the instructions seemed vauge about the different connection options for programming, and reading flight data.

Thanks!

Mine only stores data from the last flight.

Plug the ESC servo cable into the bottom
port on the spin box then connect the battery
to ESC to power up (you may have a switch on
the larger Spin ESCs?).

Main Battery power -> Spin ESC ->(servo cable)-> SpinBox
