HI all, does anybody of you out there know a way to download the original vdo from spark chip card to mini ipad 4 (I fly with) ? Cause I noticed that not only it take ages when downloading a 30 sec long vdo but it also fails sometimes cause of losing connection . I was thinking if it was possible to connect spark via cable to my ipad...what you guys think?? Thanks I appreciate.

I believe it will faster if you remove the SD card from AC and read directly on your PC/Laptop.

Or connect the Spark to the PC with the USB cable. Or put the SD card in the iPad if it has a slot.

I use an Apple SD card reader lightning cable to connect to my iPad Air 2.  I keep the micro SD to SD card adapter inserted into the Apple cable.  When I want to quickly download media from the Spark micro SD card, I power off the Spark, eject the micro SD card, insert the card into the SD card adapter, plug in the SD card cable to the iPad and let Photos import what I want.  Works very well for me.

Additionally, I have just now tested using the Apple USB to Lightning cable and can confirm that it works when directly connecting the Spark to the iPad Air 2 via this cable.

I have heard, but not tried, that if you connect directly to the spark's wifi rather than the RC, you can download much faster.

I've also downloaded directly via the Spark's wifi and have had no issues with that.  I don't have the RC.  I bought the basic Spark and have been using an iPad Air 2 and an iPhone 5s to control mine.

I hope hobbydroner finds a solution soon!

i am also using the OTG cable when downloading videos from the SD card. it seems to work faster.
so far, the best way i found is to take the SD card from Spark and insert it into computer to download video/pictures.
connecting directly to Spark's WiFi would make the download a bit faster.

Ohh Lee ,I can really recomend you to get the RC !! Spark without RC might be OK but spark with the RC is AMAZING! With RC you got better control and I guess it will respond faster to your inputs as well...just my opinion. I really appreciate your help.

Sounds good since I got the OTG but never used it cause I never had vdo drop when flying.OTG out of the drawer and get to work at last. Safe flying. Thanks.
