Hi the last time I updated my spark it threw a complete track and would n't take off in auto and needed very gentle control manually. So I have not updated again. Did the latest FW make the spark operate any better? What will happen if I never update again? My spark operates great at the moment so I am reluctant to chance it again. What d'you think?

I cannot get the DJI app to recognize my Spark for the life of me. I have tried on my Mac and a Windows laptop. Same results...sits there asking for an Inspire. I did the unsigned driver thing on Windows machine, too. Nothing.
Really upsets me that it's this difficult.

Are you trying to install the Go4 app on your laptop computer and fly?

I'm not sure if a laptop will fly the Spark.

Need to install the Go4 app on your phone or tablet.

I've had my Spark since July of 2017 and I never used the DJI assistant software to update anything.

I do the WiFi dance, at least that's what I call it.

When you need to update, download the package via WiFi using the home network. After it downloads, switch to the Spark WiFi and complete the update.

I did download the assistant because I thought I had too but it didn't work for me as well.

Good luck.
