Do I have to do the link/pairing procedure each time between the RC and the Spark?? I've had to link it every time so far, even though the manual says they are linked from the factory.

No.  The only time i've had to link the RC with the Spark is when I fly the Spark without the RC.  I've gone hours/days between RC flights and never had to link the RC with the Spark.

You seem to have gotten lucky because most reports on this forum including my own experience is that you must relink every time you reboot the machine.

Not here, never had to link the RC to the drone, apart from when I unlinked it to fly it phone only mode. Re linked after and it has stayed linked.

When you power on it can take 20 or 30 seconds to connect to the remote, are you giving it long enough to connect?

Are you sure that you asked the right question to DJI?  I've never had to re-link my RC

I would probably try talking to them (DJI) because you should NOT have to pair the RC to the Spark each time you fly.

Never had to relink before each use. I turn the remote on then the spark. The sparks flashes yellow at start up till it self links. If you are having to rebind each use make sure to turn the RC on first then the drone, if it continues contact support for a possible replacement.
