    Repeater antenna possible?

    So I love flying my Spark around, but I want to explore a bit farther. Im too afraid to fly my drone over water, trees, or houses in fear of losing signal and the drone not RTHing correctly. I’m especially nervous after flying my drone over some water a couple times and almost completely losing...

    Morning flight

    It was a bright, sunny day today and I went for a quick morning flight. Wanted to do a distance test but I was keeping an eye on the signal strength indicator all the time and bailed out when I started getting only about 2 bars at 900m out. Moreover, I had started with only about 70% gas in the...

    My longest flight - Video with Telemetry data overlay

    This is the farthest I have flown till date. I didn't try to push the boundary too much. Just wanted to check how far the RC range had improved after forcing FCC mode. Telemetry data overlay on the video created using DashWare.

    Spark's range?

    Hello, I recently got myself a Spark and was able to fly it a bit in these last few days. I already have a Mavic, which is a wonderful drone, but I liked the compactness of the Spark. Anyway, I read a bit about range before purchasing the Spark and I came to understand that while it's nowhere...

    UK Parabolic extender - Which one?

    Just after some tried and tested help please. These extenders seem to be hit and miss and I still can't work out of they are any use or just a waste of time. My Spark with the RC will reach between 300-400m here in the UK. Is there any improvement with these extenders and if so, which one...

    Limited range in Europe (CE).

    Hi. Norwegian first time droneowner here. I’ve recently bougth an DJI Spark, and I’m wondering why the range limitation in CE-area is so much higher than the Mavic. If I have my numbers correct, the Mavic have an FCC-range at ca 7km, and a CE-range at ca 4km. That is a reduction of about 43%...

    RTH - Return To Home

    Is there a way to turn off automatic RTH (Return To Home)? Would like to fly underneath trees or even in the woods. Also like to fly indoors. Need Spark to just stay in place with loss of signal. With loss of signal I can't even override the RTH. But I can move in to recapture the signal.

    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...

    Spark Range

    Are they saying 1.3 mile range with the controller is that correct? That is still an incredible distance. Is that line of site?
