Hi

I know this is a phone issue not a remote issue, but here is my problem.

I was trying to custom set the wifi on a 2.4ghz channel, just for an experimant, however my Vivo v5 phone will then not detect any broadcast from the remote on any of the lower frequencies, wifes Note 8 does fine, the Vivo is an Asian purchase (I'm in UK) but the specs for the wifi look ok, capable of 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n, just wondered if the remote is transmitting on a different standard ???

You got it, most of Android phones here in Europe does not support the 5,8GHz band. Therefore if you change the link between the Spark and the Remote to 2,4GHz, you will not see the RC from your phone. There was a workaround to this, an OTG cable that connected the phone to RC directly, but it does not work with the latest versions of DJI Go 4 (you have to downgrade to DJI GO 4 4.1.15 to use it).

Hi, sir. Please follow the advice above. I would recommend you use another phone which supports 5.8 G. Thanks for your understanding.

Incorrect, most phones in Europe DO support the 5 Ghz band.

I find it somewhat interresting that somebody from the US thinks he knows better than Europeans what phones here do and do not support. I strongly suggest that you read a few threads written here in the last month or so.

Most of the phones in the Europe definitelly DO NOT support 5,8 GHz band. What some of them do support is 5,5 GHz band, and altough it also starts with 5, you cannot use it to connect to the RC .

The use of 5,8 GHz band in Europe is somewhat problematic. Accoridng to Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels it is allowed only for Short Range Devices and under 25mW of power and accordig to Arcicorsa drones doesn't fall into that category at all. Also an interresting note, in some countries like Israel, 5,8GHz band is completely forbidden as it is used by the army.

I find it interesting, somewhat sad, that people don't think people travel the the world and own phones from different countries and have experience with many products.

Phones in the UK/EU support 5.0 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz.

Great, congratulations on mastering the number 5. Now try to focus really hard on the other numbers that come after the dot (or comma). 5.5 is NOT equal 5.8, probably a great surprise for you .
