Sounds like something amiss have you tried backward, your AC should move at the same speed in 4 directions.

I have had my spark for a couple weeks now and have noticed that it will not fly at the advertized 30mph in sport mode in straight forward flight.  flying straight forward, it will only do 22-24mph.  I was playing with the simulator last night to run the batteries down some and noticed that this is the same in the simulator as well.  the only way to make the spark fly 30mph is to fly diagonally, either with the stick full up and right or full up and left.  I assumed that when the spark was advertized as flying 30mph in sport mode that it would be able to do so in forward flight and not just flying diagonally.  
is there something i'm missing to be able to do this?

i thought so as well, but looking back through flight logs, even in normal flight mode, it has reached speeds up to 14mph while flying diagonally, while normally forward flight max speed is about 10mph.

32.1 is my highest speed.

In straight ahead forward flight or flying at a 45 degree angle?  I've flown plenty with the stick full forward and my max speed is 27mph flying diagonal

I've hit 33 mph.   Maybe calibrate the IMU sensor?  Doesn't sound like you are getting the right "tilt" on forward.  Purely a guess though.

Currently my best top speed is 35.3mph. I think the Spark moves faster going backwards.

Controller speed setting was the issue, for some reason I thought that was stick sensitivity or something like exponential

Maybe going downhill will help??

Try getting some tailwind to it, it should help to push it faster.

Top registered on the app is 57.4kph/35.6mph. I don't put a great deal of stock in the info on the app though as it claims i've gone over 300m in height which i know is incorrect (by about 200m!!)

My laptop runs on XP so can't download DJI Assistant for more accuracy info

Thanks guys, the question was answered some time ago as this is an old thread, the stick sensitivity settings in the controller configs affects the maximum speed of the spark.  Originally I thought it was a gross adjustment for exponential or something.  

on a side note, anyone know how to turn off email notifications for topic posts?

Nope, right now there is no switching off email notifications.
I asked already, got forwarded.
But looking that the air got a subforum in the Mavic, but we still wait for a ANDROID / iOS selector:
