Shortly after take with full GPS sparky goes into atti mode and goes in sport mode by it self
does some crazy turns and a few heavy banks for no reason. Then it stops and hovers and I
regain control. Any one have this happen?

I didn't hear the " The Home point has been updated..." prompt when you launched?

Did you have enough satellites before launch?

Sometimes without a good signal lock from multiple satellites the Spark may slip into Atti-Mode.

I had an issue last week where my controller lost connection w/my Spark and it took off straight then shot up. I was feet from the AC when it lost connection and took off by itself. I was finally able to gain connection and force it to the ground since it wouldn’t auto-land. Scary as hell
