Just wondering how many of you have received your spark this week and found no problems with it. Eg erratic behaviour?
As I have been hearing lots of problems with the spark. So a simple survey could be interesting
Thanks in advance

Well naturally we are going to hear more problems on the forums as this is were people come with problems. My Spark FLymore comes today I'll tell you more once I get it and my experience. I think right now the spark is new and is going to have issues. These issues will most likely be ironed out with updates.

over a week just a few flights, no problems but I`ve not dived in and tried everything, Taking it easy till I get used to it, took it with me to see my sisters who I haven`t seen for years went to a local beauty spot put the drone up in seconds and we all wave it looked great, that's what the spark is about so small and quick to set up for the quick snap or vid.

Just got mine over the weekends, flew a total of 13 flights as of now, didn't really went too far, but manage to get to 120m altitude without any signal loss/lags at all, I'm impressed with it So far there's no problem at all, haven't tried the quickshots, but will do soon

No issues on my end.  One flight so far and everything working smoothly.  This is my first drone and I am a noob, pretty cautious of what I do.

Fly More combo ordered directly from DJI, received last Friday. So far so good, no issues with connectivity, range or cutouts. It did lose me once on follow in gesture mode and I had to grab RC. Tested all quickshots and they seemed to work fine, although Dronie didn't gain much if any altitude (as others have reported). Still building my confidence in the aircraft, and look forward to firmware updates.

Got the Flymore Combo yesterday and so far have had zero problems. Were I life, it is currently pretty stormy but the spark has been performing more than alright considering the conditions. I hope it stays this way, but as of now i have no complaints.

I have had mine for a couple weeks now (no controller) and have flown it many times both via Gesture control and with my iPhone 7 Plus.  I have to say it is definitely buggy and I hope DJI gets an updated firmware soon.  The Gesture control is very buggy and only seems to work in specific lighting conditions like no direct sunlight.  I have had only a few times that it actually worked as advertised and most of those were in shady areas or times just after the sun had set.  I have tried it several times and sometimes it will register me and when I give the wave fly away gesture it will fly up and away but then it appears not to register any subsequent gestures including the Y beckon command.  Therefore I cannot get it to come back and either have to whip out my phone and connect to the wifi or in one instance it went into battery low RTH and climbed to 150' and returned to takeoff point only about 30' away and slowly descended.

The Quickshot modes are also a little buggy.  Many times the aircraft has stopped the Quickshot in the middle of it for a reason I do not understand.  The dronie doesn't climb as much as it should (thi should be pilot programmable).  Rocket mode seems to work the best out of all of them probably because it doesn't fly away from you very far (just straight up).  I'm hoping the remote control helps iron out some of these issues as well with much better range.  I should say I have got some cool Quickshot videos successfully.  Quickshot works much more often than the Gesture control!

Also apparently without the remote controller the drone will not allow you to go beyond 100 meters from takeoff point.  This basically makes Active Track follow me mode useless as it will only track a subject for a short distance even if you have your phone with you.  I tired this and it just stops at 100 meters and says max flight distance reached.  It should be set to only go as far as it can before the wifi signal from your phone drops to a preset level.

Other than that it seems to fly around via phone control and take manual photos and videos pretty well.

I tried a simple flight of up and down and a few meters(not more than 20meters) of flying away from my location and i am getting disconnected from the spark. Though it comes back after a while, it is very annoying.

I received mine about a week ago and I've flown it a few times a day, nearly every day from then.  At first the DJI application seemed to crash a few times, but I started using Airplane mode and I turned off a gesture on the finger print scanner that someone from one of the forums that I follow suggested (I'm on this forum, the DJISpark sub on Reddit, and SparkPilots).   I've watched many Youtube videos, before trying most of the stuff that the Spark will do so I don't get any surprises.   I also bought a OTG cable, which works, but I think wifi (with everything else off) works well.

When I first tried gesture mode, the sun was directly behind me, and Sparky kept failing to recognize me.  I turned so that the sun was to my side, and recognition worked fine.  It launched from hand and I was able to control it with my hand.  I also had my RC on and ready in case there were problems.  I was also in a large field with plenty of room.  Since then, I have launched and recovered into my hand several times.  I haven't had a chance to "wave it away", but I was able to take a few selfies.

So far, I am very happy with my purchase.

It's been great I tried all the quick shot functions. The only one that worried me was the dronie it went back and high enough but I got nervous like it was about to run into somebody's house , but it stopped and came back

None at all. Firmware solid, performance solid, range solid for what I'm using it for, testing sport mode out today. I find it hard to understand why so many people are having issues.
