Hi members,

I just bought a Spark (Fly more combo) yesterday. Very excited to start flying, but unfortunately I have problems to take off the device in beginner mode. I spent more than 4H to correct the problem, but always having the same message, «can not take off no GPS». Now I'm stressing about it.

Do you have an idea about this problem?

Thx

Our apologies for the inconvenience. I would recommend you try to start the drone in open wide areas and wait until there are more than 10 satellites can be detected, then start to fly the drone, see if it works. May I know the current firmware? Please keep me updated, thanks.

Papus, you should take some time to review beginner's training on Youtube, or once you are in the air, you may lose your drone.  Just search on DJI Spark getting started, and you will find hundreds.  Be careful, fly safe....

Indoors, no gps, need to be outside...
My first couple of takeoffs, i did tie a little fishing line on to the bottom of it, thinking it would prevent flyaways...it did, but take care not to get it in the propellers, and you will crash and break.
