I've been a Spark owner since May 2018. I have over 15 hours of logged flight time = 950k feet. I follow a detailed pre-flight checklist every time and have had solid performance from the Spark.

I also drop in on this forum occasionally and have noticed what looks like a spike in Fly Aways. Is there a consensus as to what is causing it?UC browser SHAREit Appvn


Out of curiosity, I hopped over to the Mavic forums and began digging. In the 25min I spent combing through Mavic Pro / Help discussions, I could not find any mention of Mavic Fly Aways. Am I missing something?

Is this really a Spark specific phenomenon? I don't buy the 'user error' line. I'm thinking there is more to it, DJI may not be fully transparent on this matter.

Hi Tony, how come your post is exactly same as the thread below? And you joined on Apr 9, 2019 but claim to be a regular on this forum since May 2018? What sorcery is this?

You are a brand new member so just a friendly FYI...

You don't have any specific numbers to support a spike in flyaways but if there is, perhaps it's because the Spark is an entry level drone and there's more of them out there. The Mavic line is a logical upgrade and with some Spark learning time behind them maybe Mavic pilots are just better pilots. They know what to do to to avoid a flyaway. Just my 2 cents (tuppence?) worth.
