I found an option buried in the settings called "Enable Advanced Gesture Controls". It looks like just standard gesture controls. Is there a difference? Anyone know why this setting is here and what it's for?

So the first thing I ever did with my Spark was try out the palm launch and gesture controls (like everyone else I'm sure) Didn't find this setting until a week later. Maybe it allows gesture controls after taking off normally and not palm launch. IDK, seems to do nothing, don't care anymore, thanks!

Yes bro, that's correct....you have to enable it every time you fly with RC/phone if you want to use the gesture control

Sounds like you're not double pressing battery button to take off from palm.

Also no settings matter in the app. You don't need a phone or controller for gesture. If you get it to work indoors and wave it , it'll go back and up straight into the wall/celing.
Strangely enough it's All in the manual.

Been having the same issues, hand gestures don't seem to work no matter what I do. I wouldn't dare trying to hand launch it!

You have to hand launch it to use gestures.

well never had problems with gesture control palm launch and all of that

from my experience you can acutally do both palm launch and you can also activate it from the intellegent flight modes menu while in flight...

OK , I found with rc linked and gesture enabled  in app, I still couldn't use gesture without double press on batt . Might try it again.
Gesture really useful, except if it loses you - it only follows you for about 15 metres -then no gestures I can find reconnect you,- so it's rc/phone to the rescue ,which is a a bit pointless.

I wouldn't recommend using gesture control indoors. The spark only has front and bottom sensors. When flying backwards or side way it may hit ceiling or wall.

That's because of the latest firmware update. I have the same Glitch!  no problems until lately. I have done hundreds of these so I know what I am doing.
