Admins: Please pass this on to the DJI engineers and request a reasonably quick response from them on this. ie: No "lip service", need ACTION.

Allow manual selection of Atti mode.
Make this one of the options to select in the GO4 app for the Fn RC button.
Allow setting restriction of altitude and distance. Default 20ft altitude and 50ft distance. Home would still be automatically set on takeoff as normal. GO4 will indicate Manual Atti mode is active.
Other restrictions enforced by the firmware are this mode is only usable when GPS is good and no other errors are detected. Valid GPS and no other errors detected are required to enforce the altitude and distance restrictions. RTH would still be possible and would cancel the manual Atti mode.
This modification would allow owners to get a feel for how the Spark will react to user control in an Atti mode under restricted parameters that would protect from fly aways.
Would be far better to know how the Spark will respond to manual flying before an owner is forced to fly that way when a failure has resulted in an unexpected Atti mode.

Do you still believe in the tales? DJI can not write a bug-free firmware, see the latest version, which made many remote controls and Spark unusable.  It would be more important to have a bug-free firmware than practice, which can handle the momentary mistakes of compass and IMU. If they did, they should not have super pilot training!
