Hi !
I cant seem to get ot to work, how am i supposed to switch between using the Spark with my Smartphone Standalone and THEN with my remote and THEN back to Smartphone usage ?

Of course i can press & hold power button on the Spark for ages until 3 Beeps come up, THEN use the smartphone, but with next power cyclle it wont bind with the remote until put both sevices in bind mode (with all the beeping that involves, DJI REALLY loves Beeping...)

So any clean & fast way of going back & forth ?

AND: even the WiFi / Smartphone mode does not seem to "come back" after a power cycle ?!?!

In other words:

Heeeeeelp :)

I found the same thing. It seems there's no way to switch back and forth without going through those reset/bind steps.

<insert dirty language here>
DJI really needs to hire a Programmer at some point...

The latter issue That i cannot see WiFi after resetting the Spark & using WiFI seems to be yet another bug about hopping to non-allowed 5G freqs that my ANdroid is not showing cause its obeying the law:

Spark and Pixel XL (possibly others) wifi disappearance

rats ;-)


Well, things will go upwards but its incredibly lack of Q&A at DJI again.

Thanks,

Ender

On my Apple devices, it takes about 5 seconds for the Wi-Fi network to show up after resetting the Spark. It consistently shows up for me eventually.

Nope, its taken from Copters GPS, there ARE ways beside Firmware Manipulation but crude, expensive and brute force...
