I hope my brief Spark experience may help some members.

I have the Spark Combo, all going well except for difficulty finding the Spark on my WiFi unless I cycled the RC start. I changed to an OTG, no luck until I swapped the cable and then it worked pretty well.

Yesterday I had an uncommanded landing, no damage, re calibrated IMU.

Next take-off, uncommanded horizontal flight, fortunately it stopped at an obstacle but afterwards, it would not fly forwards, all other directions seemed okay.
Spark has an additional 'noise' internally. Perhaps a bearing .

Good battery, good GPS, no metallic or other interference.

I called support who told me that my Moto 4G play is incompatible.

Maybe but surely the flight commands come from the RC unit, or am I missing something?

I have arranged a return with the seller.

Try flying with just the remote, keep the bird close to you and see how it responds.
Thanks for the suggestion but I cannot see how a phone would override the RC.

The RC must be the ‘master control’ of the Spark.

With non commanded maneuvers, It would have been too risky to lose or damage here in France.

I have already returned the Spark to the seller as I think there is an internal fault.
