Decided to mess with the bird a bit. Have eyed up this location numerous times and in light of my spark sitting in a box and the irony of not using the spark to avoid losing the spark has prodded me to try and revisit the thing.

So....low and slow in tripod over water. No line of sight after the first minute or so. The rth near the end illustrates how far the footage was obtained fpv only.

Not great but at least the thing is in the air.

Nice job, hope you regain some of the fire.  Don’t sweat the hobby so much and just enjoy the moments. Once I stopped worrying so much I really found myself enjoying this much more.

A great place. Thanks for sharing with us! But why do you fly so closely to the water, just for fun? Take care.

Just for fun yes. I am intrigued with the "floating eye" potential of the spark because of it's small size. I've seen many videos of the spark floating through forest settings and such and it's a cool effect.

The spark seems a little "floaty" over water but was well behaved otherwise. Over fast moving, rippling water it actually floated along in the air at a slightly slower pace than the water but in the same direction as the flow.

Thanks for clarification. Good luck.

I have both a Mavic and Spark. How high should I fly it over water with VPS on to be safe?

VPS operating range (based on internet search) for Mavic is 13 meters and 30 meters for Spark (can you please confirm these).  Thus, if I am flying higher than that, is it safe to leave VPS on?

Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

Confirm you are correct. Beyond the altitude, the VPS will not work well, and it depends on the GPS signal.
