I have read a lot and seen a mess of videos so I understand how to fly the spark with  gestures. My problem is I can't get it to go into face recognition and then palm launch.

To start up the Spark,  I tap the battery button once and then again and hold until I hear the fans. Then I let it go through the warm up stage. Then I tap the battery button twice and the front LEDS will flash red twice instead of turning green. The Spark won't start and the back LEDS just flash yellow as in signal loss. I tried diff batteries. No wind and in Different sunlight and even indoors. All help is appreciated. I have the Fly more Combo. Thx.

Have you turned off Beginner mode? It won't let you do gesture in beginner mode.

Refresh firmware through DJI Assistant 2 and try again. I had problem with gestures and that helped.

This isn't about Beginner Mode - Beginner Mode does not prevent you from using Gesture Mode.  What DOES block you though, is the "Gesture Mode" setting in DJI Go 4 - you must enable it before you can use Gesture Mode.  The front LEDs flashing red twice indicates you have not yet enabled Gesure Mode in the app.

Thanks guys. I did enable gesture mode through the app and then turned off the phone and remote (even turned off obstacle avoidance) but it didn't work.

But it is on Beginner mode so I will try that!!!  Hope that is the issue!  Thx again!!

I had the same problem and finally figured out that when I was doing the double tap that I was being too deliberate and too slow.  I was doing more like two push motions.  It takes two quick light taps.

Bummer, turned off beginners mode, it didn't work. Tried the tap 2x quickly and all sorts of variations, and firmware is the latest. Still will not go into face recognition mode. Help! It the Fly more combo and when trying to fly with just my iPhone in don't see it in the wi fi option. It only works with the remote. But I want to fly it without the remote. Thanks all, keep the suggestions coming!

Today I received my Spark. Encountered the same problem.
Solution: Turn Beginners Mode off and turn Gesture mode on in the GO 4 app.

How did you get gesture mode to work? I'm having the same problem.
