As we now, based on CE regulation DJI SPARK Max transmission distance in Europe is limited to:
2.4 GHz - 500m
5.8 GHz - 300m

Maybe we could post here the best flight distance we have reached so far, before starting to lose image transmition signal
In form:

You have OTG :Y - Is that an old flight or recent flight? Are you still on old Phone Software?

Just for info I fly with and without OTG, trying to establish best system. I have included both flights in my feedback. (with OTG I have constant "Weak Image Transmission", but no problems during flight!, without OTG (Wi FI) there is no message for "Weak Image Transmission")

Had just performed compass calibration due to compass errors and signal loss.
Probably would have gone further but I could no longer see the spark against the background.

What I have learned is that if there is wifi interference then signal loss occurs.

I've set a while ago the max flight distance to 200m in DJI GO 4 app for the following reasons:
1) On average I get choppy/laggy response beyond 200m distance which is annoying.
2) On average I barely can see the Spark beyond 200m which feels very uncomfortable.
3) Maybe the most important; Dutch flight regulation rule: "keep your drone in sight throughout the flight".
