The DJI Pilot app does work with the Spark (with some limitations). DJI does not officially support using Pilot with any consumer drones.

Not all functions of Pilot are available when using Spark because it was designed for more sophisticated commercial drones. Pretty sure mapping is not available on Pilot when combined with Spark.

Fortunately there are good mapping apps from third party developers that better support the Spark (ex. Pix4Dcapture)

I tried the iOS version based and get a pop up message that Spark isn’t supported.

How do you use the dji pilot app
Try DJI GS Pro. It doesn't say it supports Spark, but it does. I used it to plan and execute several mapping missions. Make sure to orient the camera/gimbal to nadir manually before starting the mission; it took me a while figure this out :)

nuzhet, Mike doesn't ask for another alternative App, he ask specific for how to use the DJI Pilot App.

Yes. The OP was asking how the DJI Pilot app works. But he says owns a Mavic Pro Platinum -- and he's on the Spark Forum.

Tons of info about Pilot app on MavicPilots Forum and YouTube.

I already said in the post #6 that's YouTube maybe can help. The hint with MavicPilots is new to me. I am a member of MavicPilots but I am not visit the side a lot. I will try the DJI Pilot App this weekend for my self... but as a Litchi App owner I expect not to much from the DJI Pilot App. ;)

The Spark’s gimbal does not look straight down. It’s limited to 85 deg down, so it’s not good for mapping.

No need to try. I use a different drone for aerial mapping, Doesn't not looking straight down distort the photos, or does post processing software automatically correct the distortions?
