Hi,

I am new to DJI and spark is my first drone.

I have successfully linked my spark with RC as required and it works fine both on wifi and even with otg.

Now when I switch connection and I press the power button for 6s and turn on wifi to use spark via mobile it starts functioning via mobile as well.

But now again when I want to use the RC I am unable to connect it just shows RC connected then I click enter flight then it shows aircraft not connected and screen is blank. So hence I need to again re link the RC to spark. This is so **** annoying.

Is this the only method? I mean do u actually have to always again relink spark RC after switching from mobile controlling? Or there is something wrong at My end.

Yes, you'll have to manually re-link the Spark to the RC each time you switch back & forth between RC & phone/tablet. Yes, it sucks.

Yes, it is like that but it is a must, there is no magic way it can guess if you want to use the RC or your phone to control it, it has to be done in a safe way.
I am waiting for RC to be delivered and currently use only the phone but as soon the RC is there I expect that I will never have to use the phone to try to control it, it is so laggy and unreliable IMO. Maybe I expect too much from the RC but if it is not the case, then the Spark would not be worst the money.

Spark with RC feels v good to control but the video feed is still very choppy and poor quality. Only after OTG is fine. But it always says this accessory might not be supported.
