Yesterday and today, the sun showed up for a few moments. So I decided to practice some fly arounds and test the enhanced version of sport mode. The spark is now modded perfectly for my needs so the next videos will be about practicing my flying abilities. Enjoy

Looks awesome! Mind if I ask what mods you went with on the Spark?

Tweaking some values in the firmware. You can change a lot but after trying a few values, I stick just with the Sport mode values. It now enables spark to tilt more when accelerating so the result speed is higher. Also the ascend and descend speed was ramped up - so I don't have to wait for ages if I want to take a picture from higher altitude.

But I have to warn anyone - these tweaks require you are aware that the drone behavior will change tremendously. The motors work on 90% of their peak power - so it's not very stable in the stronger wind - especially the crosswind. When landing in sport mode, it's easy to slam the spark to the ground like a brick. So when I'm in about 30m, I switch the sport mode off.

But there is one huge benefit - when I'm up high, I can stay there longer, because the sport mode descend is so quick (it's corrected free fall practically ) because the engines are working on 7-9%. Descend from 500m takes literally seconds (20-30). Also the ascend is pretty impressive.
