Like 10 month and you do not fix it!!!

see actually the SPARK does work with greater than 3000 meter distances . The configuration is a mix of a mode and disabling things like the internet and bluetooth while flying. DJI does not want to improve the SPARK as it will affect the sales for their new DJI MAVIC AIR which also runs on WiFi .  Hope you get my point )

You have to be in either one as far as your drone concerns.
And judging by your range, DJI might have set it to CE standards.

You can't change it yourself.
It is in the DJI database.

Are you in an area with a lot of wifi interference?
Lots of buildings etc?
Metal objects etc?

Ok.
From what I have read here I understand 200m is about the max for CE area.
FCC is much better.
What band are you on?
2.4 or 5.8 Ghz (the first one has better range, the second one less interference issues)

Maybe try 2.4 Ghz.
That should have better range.

Go to an open field with very little houses, with stock rc you will get around 2000 meters of range. and why do u want more range anyways?

Sorry to hear about your issues. The spark can be temperamental at times but once you get it dialed in you won’t want to get rid of it.

Is there any other features that you'll lose if you downgrade? like any quickshots, any settings?

I recommended to use Hack app... Unlock all Mavic Pro modes and switch link to FCC standards.. It is only way for use Spark, without this app Spark is rubbish.. For detail send me PM...

Yes I agree with that. Spark with waypoints is fantastic. I can understand why DJI might be unwilling to support it officially because some people will fly it at distances up to 2 miles which could cause problems and give them a bad name.

Hi, there. Did you try to change an environment to fly your drone? Please wifi setting and check if most of the channels are green. Please turn off the bluetooth devices around your spark. What is the model of your device? Please try to fly with another one.

I absolutely love the Spark, even in the crowded city I get 2000+ feet with no problems. Having some of the other features would be nice, like the waypoint flying and active tracking the controller, but it's still a great entry level drone.

I am not able to take picturea from my spark. I have tried several times, I have tried pressing the button on my phone and also the button on the remote controller but do not work. Is this because I dont have a sd card or should I be able to take pictures without one?
