    2 Spark questions- "DIY OTG connector?" & "Spark payload/sensor blocking"

    Hi! Loving my new Spark so far, and doing lots of fun experiments with it. I have two questions I haven't found answers to yet: 1. I've got plenty of lightning cables & micro USB's around. I'd like to combine a set and make a custom length OTG connector to try. Does anyone have a pinout or...

    Spark range on 5.8GHz better than 2.4GHz or OTG

    After latest firmware (01.00.0500) update & latest DJI Go 4 App update (4.1.5), I noticed that range seems to be improved. I decided to do a test from a multistory parking (to get a better VLOS) using OTG vs WIFI. To my surprise, I got best results (1.2 miles / 2KM range & a perfect signal...
