This video may help. I will also warn you not to try flying with the virtual sticks indoors

You can link the Spark to your mobile device like this:
  • Power on the Spark
  • Wait until the Spark's rear lights flash yellow
  • Press and hold the Spark power button until you hear 3 beeps
  • Within a few seconds, you should see the Spark's Wi-Fi network appear on the Wi-Fi list on your mobile phone
  • Connect to the Spark's Wi-Fi network on your mobile phone (the Wi-Fi password is inside of the Spark's battery compartment)
  • Open DJI GO 4
When you want to switch back to the remote controller, you'll need to relink the remote controller to the Spark. See the video @aviscomi posted above.

Just a thought,

1. Write down the WiFi password from under the battery compartment before you do all the other stuff.

2. I wish I'd remember my own advice.

:D

Smart idea! :)

The good news is that your mobile device will remember the Spark's Wi-Fi password after entering it the first time. That makes it easier to switch between the remote controller and mobile device later.

:D

I put a piece of clear tape over my QR sticker in case of the constant battery changes wears it out.

I'll lose the paper later if I wrote it down :rolleyes:.

I was going to argue that and say that mine doesn't - then I remembered that's because I bought a remote and started using a spare identical phone without a SIM card, and I never put the original password into that phone.

Durrrrr o_O:D

Once i connect the phone will always remember the password, but writing it down is a good idea :)

The sticker on the side of the foam case the spark came in contains the wifi password as well.

Bumping this as I've been experimenting with ActiveTrack recently and I have to reset the Spark's WiFi EACH TIME I want to connect with my phone, the reason likely being that I'm in Europe and that the Spark defaults upon booting up to an illegal 5.8Ghz frequency that my phone (an Android) cannot connect to. Resetting WiFi apparently forces 2.4Ghz, at least temporarily.

Hope that helps someone !

Can't hurt but a WiFi reset won't prevent the phone from connecting automatically. The problem is on the Spark's side with a "two bip" switch going to an illegal frequency in Europe.
