Hi guys,

My Spark fly more arrived and i'm about to take it out for it's first proper flight today, but i have a few questions. I'm sure these answers are out there but i can't find them in search.

I will be flying it with the remote control mainly, if i wanted to take a photo, is there a timer function?

Can gesture mode be activated when you've already used the remote to take off?

The scenario i'm thinking of is if i've flown somewhere using the remote, aim the camera back at myself, and want to take a selfie from a distance. I don't want the remote control in my hand, so can a timer be set on the photo function in-app, or will the selfie gesture work? Do i have to get the drones attention first somehow?

Final question, i remember reading that there is a button on the contoller that people map to a certain function, but i can't rememeber what the common suggestion was or find that info,

Thanks

Ryan

Oh and one final question. My understanding is that my phone is paired to the remotes wifi, which is paired to the drones wifi. What happens if the remote dies? My phone has never been paired to the drone?

Hi,

Is that the timer that just repeatedly takes photos until you stop it?

Is there no single shot timer option?

Thanks

no single shot timer. But set the timer to 2 seconds and take some pictures and choose later which is the best ;)

I have a few more questions:
1. Dronie doesn't seem to go up?
2. Helix seems to just fly off and not slowly circle around in an every increasing diameter.
3. I almost bought the Mavic Pro, but this was more ideal for travel, and cost. One thing I remember the mavic being able to do was set a centre spot, then set a radius, and then the mavic would circle that point. You could also set waypoints for it to fly between. Where are those settings on this Spark??

Thanks
