Indoor Height limit

I was filming inside my local church, with tripod mode and obstacle avoidance off, but could not fly above about thirty feet. The controller said max height reached. Is there a way I can get a bit higher? I could do with another twenty feet to get the shot I want.

With no GPS the spark has a hight limit. That absolutely annoys the hell outta me about DJI products. You basically have to hack your drone to remove it . Nothing you can do to remove it otherwise.

That make a lot of sense. Never thought of that, thanks.

If you dont have the necessary gps satellites to get a gps lock, it will use opti sensors (downward)
Right on. This issue can be overcome by disabling the downward sensors on other DJI drones. Unfortunately, there is no setting to disable the downward sensors when flying the Spark.

Not getting too techy here, but via Litchi it is possible to deactivate downward sensor (Vision Positioning System).
Have no idea if this setting will influence on height limit and stabilization of drone.

I tried it and confirmed it remains disabled after switching back to DJI GO. Solid workaround.

So it stays off? I wonder if these long ranger that put Thier batteries underneath know about this bug.
Instead of opening the spark up and unplugging the downward vision sensors.

Someone needs to test if it gets rid of that annoying hight restriction when indoors, that would be awesome if it does.

you can reprogram the "sport" key in "atti" with dji assistant 2 in developer mode, in atti mode there is more height limitation in indoor
