My spark flew away two days ago.  I was able to locate it in a densely wooded area using GPS co-ordinates from Flydata and an app called GAIA GPS all which have free accounts.  

So far, no damage found on unit.  Still checking it out. As it dropped from about 175ft in the air to the forest floor.

First using my laptop, I set-up a free account on airdata.com. I then uploaded my flight record file from my iPod.  Airdata then produced a map of my whole flight.  In the details section, it gave me the GPS co-ordinates that the spark last transmitted.   I then download onto my iPhone GAIA GPS set-up a free account. Entered the GPS co-ordinates into the app. Then I and my son just walked to the co-ordinates and was lucky enough my son saw it.

Thanks for sharing this.  I'm sure others and hopefully I never have to follow these steps.  Glad you got your Spark back and all is well.  Cheers,
