Most unusual. It almost sounds like your wifi settings are set to 5.8mz instead of the 2.4. Have you checked those to make sure? 5.8 will not give you the distance/range, it comes in handy for shorter flights since it's not used by most gadgets at this current time, but does not have the distance/range that 2.4 has.
How do you change the WiFi settings to 2.4 mz. Not trying to hijack the link but saw your post and had to ask. Been wondering for a while.
Thanks

You won't have the option to change back and forth between 2.4 & 5.8 if you have the OTG cable connected at the time. One needs to connect the controller and phone via wifi instead of OTG, then the option to adjust between the two will be available to select. Once done and the wifi restarts itself after pressing ok, you can then plug in the OTG and you're GTG.

Do I physically touch the settings to change it? I ask this because I have tried to reset it by touching custom and still can't get the controller to change. I'm not using the otg cable as my Razer Max phone doesn't acknowledge it.

Touch pressing on the frequency as well as the channel numbers should allow you to select the setup you want.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.
Keep an eye on the distance and connection to see if u see an advantage. By default the Spark chooses the optimum frequency automatically. But "one size" does not "fit all" in this sport.
