Hello! I noticed that the fan of my spark sometimes turns off and starts 2 seconds later while the spark is hot..the ambient temperature is 31 celcius..i think that is happening more often when i hold it and i am ready to launch it in my hand..is it normal?

The fan is controlled by a temperture threshold. If the Spark reaches this specific temperature = fan on. Cooled down = fan off. And so on...

My Spark gets very hot even before flying but I think that's just how it is.

It might be just the battery getting warm... The fans only cool the rest of the unit i think

I think is normal for the spark to be hot if is not flying,since it has 24 cpus/gpus,and it has to calculate camera,sensors etc..but to turn off the fan while it is too hot,i found it weird.. just a thought..
