Hi, I may be asking obvious Q's but here goes...
1) In a Quickshot can you set the Circle size and if so, how?

2) and again in a Quickshot, taking a Selfie, how do you set distance up and distance away from you of the Spark?

Last Q for this post, thanks for reading this far... 3) what is P mode and how do you select it/go into it/leave it?

Thanks for any help... I am trying to absorb lots of YouTube Spark stuff but these 3 have eluded me up to now.

In a Quickshot can you set the Circle size
Yes. You set it by positioning the Spark in the air before starting the circle. See this example.

in a Quickshot, taking a Selfie, how do you set distance up and distance away from you of the Spark?
If only flying with hand gestures, you cannot set how far the Spark flies away from you when waving to send it away. If you want better control, it would be best to position the Spark in the air using the remote controller (or mobile device) and then use the timed shot camera mode to delay the camera shutter so you have time to strike your pose before the camera takes the photo.

what is P mode and how do you select it/go into it/leave it?
P mode is the default flight mode that uses GPS data from the Spark's internal GPS receiver to help it hold its horizontal position. It'll always fly in P mode unless you manually switch it into Sport mode (using the button on the front of the Spark remote controller) or a loss of GPS and/or compass problem causes the Spark to switch to A (ATTI) mode (where it will drift with the wind).
