I'm just getting into the spark, Been flying Phantom's and Mavic for a while. I did not see any tracking the best distance with a stock Spark drone. I'll try and do a running list. BUT lets keep it Simple. No mods to the drone, you can add wind surfer to the antennas. send a link from Airdata showing your flight. Yes this is for distance from home and back ( with in 50ft). If you want to make it difficult I just can it. This is for the sport and fun of flying.... Please it seems that one 1 mile (1609 meters)will be the minimum distance that I will record.
I'll start off with a flight today. humidity is high for us around 40%.

lets all enjoy.

I won’t post screenshots but I made it over 24,000 feet without going dangerously low on battery charge. 15,000’ is about average for me as I like to land with 30% battery life left for overall battery health. That’s completely stock with an OTG cable and a normal antenna extender.

Trick is to have a fully charged new-ish battery, using sport mode, and minimal directional changes. A calm day is also needed.

I don’t foresee beating my personal record anytime soon now that my batteries aren’t new anymore.

wow, maybe your miss understanding the distance to from home point to the farthest distance and back home. If you are getting out to 24k and back my hat is off to you.

Yes, I misunderstood. Furthest out is significantly less. I set my settings to only allow a mile out, and only reached that once while I was over a lake. I’m usually 1/2 mile or less. Biggest reason for me not going further is I generally avoid flying over houses to stay on good terms with neighbors, and I try to stay within line of sight rules.

I made it to 9004 feet distance a few days ago. This was in the wide open spaces of the Nevada desert. I could have gone a little further but was running out of battery and didn't want to push it. I should add this was with reflectors on the controller antennas. 1.7 miles, not bad.
