We've been having some warmer days than normal - 115 to 122 degrees - and while I am only flying in the early morning, or towards dusk - the batteries are still pretty warm to the touch when done flying - and the Spark itself is of course warm too.  I've read that the operating parameters for the batteries are a max of somewhere just under 100 degrees.  Does anyone know what the signs are, or potential damage could be - from flying when it's above those parameters?  Advice appreciated.

It's HOT!

If Spark becomes too hot, in general, unexpected behavior may occur. Probably, you may get warning from Dji Go 4 about the overheat.

Yesterday I was flying my Spark at the baseball field, checked the temperature after 12 o 13 minutes and the temperature was 62C (around 143), I had to bring it back immediately.

Scared af .

Same thing I'm wondering as well. Here in AZ its probably just too hot to fly, After 6-8 min of flight my battery was 53C which is roughly 120F.
