Is anyone here from the South East UK (preferably Berkshire) with a Spark.

Would very much like to meet in the same location to fly your Spark and my Spark and see if they both demonstrate the same issue.

Mine will not fly ANY intelligent modes, failing every time saying "ActiveTrack Flight Stopped__Aircraft Entering Restricted Area"


This is constant, no matter where I go, from my own garden in Berkshire to a field in South Wales to a lagoon on the Isle of Wight off the Southern coast.


I cannot get DJI interested in the issue, normal support says its a "flysafe" issue and flysafe do not answer emails.


I have reloaded the App numerous times, reloaded the firmware a few times, added unlock zones, removed unlock zones, switched zones off and on and tried both Andriod and IOS based phones.

Please tell me where did you fly your drone when you got the "restricted area" warning. The information of version is also needed. Thanks.

Hi,

I've not had any of the warning's from my Spark. I've only used Tripod mode so far and it worked as intended.

Thanks

Martin, I tried active track today, using the iPhone, remote and the Spark. It worked great. Impressed with how it followed my daughter on her bike.

PM me if you are still having issues and I'll happily meet up with you.

Cheers Jasper

Thanks for the offers. DJI have responded and I have sent in some files to them for the failure to do any Active tracks or quickshots. It also fails to do Pano or Shallow Focus, basically it seems to be any maneuver that requires automatic movement. However:

1. I was playing with an OTG cable last night. This also gave the no Pano, No Shallow stating camera failed to initialise. So I pull the cable out MID FLIGHT and went to wireless. Suddenly it would do Pano, shallow AND DRONIE. However once the battery ended then it would not do the same for the next battery

2. I was playing again tonight and could not reproduce the OTG cable effect noted in point 1. However I switched to beginner mode and DRONIE, CIRCLE, HELIX and ROCKET all worked to a point. Only ROCKET returned, DRONIE and HELIX all failed towards the end of the cycle stating "Activetrack was interrupted", It would not do any of these functions with beginner turned off.

3. I had my first palm launch fail. It fell to the ground (Motors running). It danced violently across the ground about 6 inches high until it responed to my up stick and lifted up to 1 metre and calmed down.

4. Palm landing did not work all evening.

The sensors all appear very clean. I have pulled the DAT and TXT files from the device
