Anyone have this happen? Brought spark down to land but it stopped at 10 ft altitude with no further responce to landing input using RC. Then after several seconds decided to land.

It is normal since the sensors analyses the floor as an obstacle before decide to landing when we force the throtle to down.
You may try to modify key "fn" for take off and landing. Then you can do it in a single click.

If it is normal why has it never happened before? Have maybe 60 flights with spark and this happened one time.

There is always a slight pause before landing, but not more and a fraction of a second. This was like 10 seconds.

It happened to me once. It just hovered at about 6 feet before i walked up to it and grabbed it.
