Why is everyone complaining about DJI? CE in Europe is a compliance to telecommunications regulations.

If DJI did not provide CE based drones on the EU then you would have no DJI drones.

While you are converting to FCC transmission power you are breaking EU law.

So you need to take it up with your communications regulators and your EU law makers.

Has nothing to do with DJI. Other than them obeying the laws and providing a product under EU rules.

Actually, there could be Occusync versions of Spark or Mavic AIR for Europe.
See, Mavics 1/2 and Phantoms 3/4 Advanced and PRO are still within EU regulations but have far better range and reliable link even under CE rules. So Spark and MA idea of (Enhanced) WiFi should work for FCC countries, but is disastrous idea for CE ones.
So, there would be DJI drones in Europe even if get rid of that (Enhanced) 0.025W WiFi nonsense.

Nobody is complaining about DJI about CE/FCC. To DJI its a totally clear and understandable decision to do it the way they did.

However, we CE country people all know, that you can't really make good use of a video drone (whatever make it is) if you stick strictly to the CE transmission power rules.
You aren't even allowed to use antenna reflectors then (EIRP issue)!
So the way to go is sensibly assess where it is not risky to anybody to fly. I personally would never fly a drone near or even over inhabitated areas or people. That's risky since a drone can crash any time and you could hurt persons then.
Also, with more distance to inhabitated areas, the risk of disturbing someone else's RF network is negligable, since field strength reduces with the square of the distance.
Using a higher power transmission on a drone in fact gives you a higher safety margin. And that's a good thing, right?

That's of course my personal opinion.

Cheers,
Wolferl

You have PM :-)

Hello everyone. I am French, excuse me for my bad English. I really need help. I just bought the mavic 2 zoom and the distance is really bad. 900 meters only. Help me, how to switch to Fcc mode. I tried with my fake GPS but it does not work. I sold my Anafi to buy the mavic 2 and with my Anafi and the fake GPS mode Fcc worked very well. Please help, it will make me sad to send the Drone back to the store.

Unfortunately FCC hackled DJI GO app. only version 4.1.22, but it does not support MAVIC 2 yet. Maybe later ...

I suspect the better range of the Mavic is mostly due to the much more efficient antenna in the aircraft.
In the Spark the antenna is within the body, the Mavic uses the front legs.

Yes there is a boost FCC which allow the RC and Mavic transmit with 1.5Watt instead of 0.4Watt(FCC)
Only for MP and MPP. You can install it next to orginal DJIgo4 app and use it when you need more power to beat the environment. But android only.

Do the same step as for Spark:
1. Install Fake GPS on your android smartphone;
2. Run substitution of GPS;
3. Turn on Spark and connect it to your smartphone.
4. Open DJI Go4 and accept to switch WiFi settings.
5. Turn off Spark, close DJI Go4, stop Fake GPS.
6. Repeat step 3 and refuse to change wi-fi settings (do so EVERYTIME you start your drone).

CE range on Mavic 2 is about 5km thanks to the Ocusync 2.0.... so, I can believe that.

I totally agree with you my friend…. the idea of flying 5 miles away.. think one have to SAR the drone .. No thanks.. Don't get the idea why one wanna fly so far away.. same With altitude junkies.. Yeah ofc its fun to try out once.. but hey .. No we keep it closer at homepoint..

On Spark this CE mode is really weak and wierd, and you can lose transmission even in 50-70 metres (150-200ft). So we all switch to FFC not only because of range but stubility. If with Mavic Pro it works another way - good to hear that, it give us hope, that with next model they fix it with low-price drone too.
P.S. My friend with Mavic Air had the same problem with transmission stability as we on Spark.

Same here - it is actually illegal in the UK to fly a drone more than 500m away from your position and with all of the focus on drones here at the moment you would have to be a complete idiot to fly a drone that far away. We've all 'tested it' and use our common sense but even 3 miles is just a court case waiting to happen.

I've hit 2KM with my Mavic Air and didn't lose signal in CE mode - the environmental conditions play a huge role. If you are in/near a built up area the WiFi only transmission systems on the Spark and Air will glitch very quickly. I use to manual set the channel to 13 before take off too.

Hi folks,

One inportant point is that the Mavics have their antennas in the leading feet (which is good), whereas the Spark has its in the body case (thats bad). May be we should try a mod to have the Sparks antenna positioned better.

Unfortunately, I didn't hold smart controller in hands, so don't know whether it permit to install third-party android program. Without some kind of 'Fake GPS' you can't do this procedure and get wanted result.

That is b/c Mavic Air is the Spark2,  just a wifi drone.
"Enhanced" wifi is just not Occusync.

I don’t really consider it hacking the Spark. Outside Europe peoplr are flying the Spark in FCC, so it’s native to the Soatk.
You just have to open the DJI GO 4 Mod app in Android  once to put it in FCC, and then back to using the oficial DJI GO 4. I fly in FCC in iOS, and it makes a HUGE difference in RC connection and video transmition. It was litterally impoosible for me to control the video recording smoothly because of tremendous lagging in CE, I don’t have that problem sny more.
