Confuses horizon with obstacle...

Hello friends,
Has anyone experienced this problem:
My Spark almost always confuses a horizon (especially a bright sunny horizon) with an obstacle and it refuses to continue flying forward. I have to rotate it and then fly it backwards to overcome this, but this sucks...
It alarms me that it identifies an obstacle even if it is 60 meters altitude...
I don't want to disable an obstacle alarm...
Is it a common issue?
Thanks!
Mike

Yes this is common. The forward obstacle sensors are Infrared, so they trigger off of the Sun. To verify this, fly toward the west at sunset on a cloudy day. You wont have the problem.
