Do you have the FMC Green? Are you having signal issues?

Trying to see how many people here are having issues with the FMC Green?  Is it ONLY the green model getting "aircraft disconnected" and slowly dropping out of the sky?
Need to figure this out.... cannot fly this guillotine if I can't control it.

I have only 4 flights with my Spark, every single one has had issues.

What device are you using to connect to the remote control?

Uh yeah, somehow I don't think that the issues are related to the color of the Spark.  For what its worth, I have green.

Yeah I've had my green Spark since 06/24/17 and have had zero issues with it.  None.  It's a Fly More setup using a an iPhone 7+ connected via WiFi (31 flights totaling close to 2 hours of flight time).  I purchased an OTG setup just in case but have yet to ever use it.

I would be surprised as well if any of these issues are tied specifically to a particular color bird.

Try to eliminate anything that may be causing interference.....turn off Bluetooth, close all open apps, make sure you aren't flying in a location with a lot of metal and/or cement.  See if that helps.  Usually Apple products are pretty good with DJI products.  I myself use an iPHone 7 and have never had a problem.

ABSOLUTELY could be related to the color IF they were all manufactured in the same plant.  Trying to narrow down if the problem is based on a factory, shipping location or what.

Having been a Production Engineer for 25+ years I can assure that the top colored section of the Spark (Green, Red, Yellow, etc.) is the last part that is put on in the production/assemebly process.  The best & only way to track lot/batch is by the serial numbers and only DJI knows the serial number segmentation

Oh I see.  So for the most part they won't manufacture different colors in different factories?    DJI has had many issues in the past with inital releases... Had issues with the Osmo, software would not export media to camera roll... (DUH)... Mavic had a few minor issues... but I haven't had any issues as bad as this one.

I live in the mountains, and there is very little in the way of signal noise.  Clear shot right to the drone... Still issues.  Considering returning/refund.   Have only flown like 4-5 times.... keeps falling from the sky.  Too dangerous.

I'm well aware of the issues, but the color is just a snap on cap and I highly doubt that they (DJI) have a factory for each color cap that snaps on.  Production line...yes, which is why products like this use serial numbers.  Each segment of the serial # is representative of assembly date, workbench, shift, etc.

I highly doubt it is related to color. I have yellow Spark and having similar issues. In fact, look around the Spark forum - you have to notice all threads with signal loss and disconnects.

As Tviscomi is saying , this is the last part that can have connections with the signal issue . I work as quality controller in a production assembly plant , and i assume the cover part is added at the end of production and it's decided by the shifts daily . Only thing is that white color was the firs to came off the production line in great numbers (shipping ate  conclusion) .
