Hello Ladies and Gents.  I may have the slowest Spark in the group.  I was wondering how far you have to fly in a straight line to see that 31mph?  I haven't seen more then 15 or so mph in Sport mode.  Maybe I haven't gone stick down far enough?

Is this your first time using sport mode?

No, I've used it quite cautiously for quite a bit.

I found for me that I had to switch in and out of sports mode a couple of times.  if that does not work, try the following:

1. ensure that Beginner mode is switched off (I expect you have already done this)
2.  test normal flight first and make sure it hits the standard 10-12 km/h (roughly 6mph i think)
3. turn off obstacle avoidance off and see if this increases your speed (it should double it to around 12mph)
4. switch into sport mode and see if you can get up to top speed.

If all else fails, turn the drone and the RC off and back on and try again.

I had the same issue. It turned out to be that I was playing with the settings and moved the controller sensitivity halfway through thinking that it was the gimbal one.

If your using stick set 2 it should be elevator full forward i.e. Right stick pushed fully up, you really need to test in windless conditions or a slight downwind, at 15mph it's not right.

Controller setting is set all the way to fast.  I would imagine it would take a least a football field or so to reach top speed?

To OP, is your default unit of distance in meter? If so then it maybe normal becasue 31 mph is about 13 meter per second.

Thanks for the answers and feedback, actually, if someone found that his drone flew at a slow speed, please try to calibrate the RC and IMU, that also matters.

Have you considered reading the manual from front to back first instead of asking questions online?
