Does anyone fly using an FCC hacked App?

Please share your experiences, Good and Bad

I had been hoping for a sensible discussion on this topic.
I'm not advocating hacking the DJI App, but from what I've read on other sites I can see why other pilots do it.
Might have been more interesting than what colour is my Spark, or do I fly with prop guards. Certainly more interesting than the conspiracy theories that DJI want to control my drone/brain.

I live in the UK, which means my RC operates within CE transmission regulations. I always fly in accordance with CAA advice.
I have never flown out of VLOS, but have on a number of occasions, lost video connection at around 200 ft. (Flying in rural areas, away from all interference.)
I am considering the FCC hack, so that I could fly within VLOS and below 400 feet and be confident that the RC signal strength would maintain contact with my drone.

And the only response is some sarcastic video clip.
I'd hoped for better

Whilst I agree with everything you say fanse5394b5d, I did find the response from  Rjrolyn VERY funny. The problem is, irresponsible fliers will take advantage and make regulations worse for us than they are now. I suspect this forum is not the best place to discuss this subject.

There is no hack, the RF output is based on GPS location.

You say nonsense ... Of course, NLD will make the FCC available to EU users, as well as OTG and Mavic features.

I'm not looking at hacking a drone, I'm looking at modified DJI GO4 app that, irrespective of location, will default to FCC standard transmission

So where is the best place to discuss more about this topic? I live in a CE area so would be interested in knowing more about the experience.

I do not understand why you are all reluctant to talk about it. If you think Dji about the "Hacked app" does not know you are really naive .. Remember that Dji can not do anything except encrypting an app, and their encryption is not perfect. When they come next will be deciphered again .. See how programmers they fight PC, Android, PS, etc. and they are still losing the same .. Just Dji can not do anything in the fight against Hacking and modding their SW and HW .. If Dji complains to the users and does not listen to their prompts, vice versa, the hacked SW will increase.

Iam using NLD app which works well for CE areas as well.  You get FCC mode on your spark. But you will not be able to login into the internet .

Your scenario is the reason why I ending up searching, finding and installing the FCC App.

For me, it never has been about breaking rules or being rebellious, it's been about video signal stability (and WiFi strength) within the CE/EU range rules.  I don't want to fly silly heights or distances....I do however want a video signal within clear LOS range.   The FCC hack,  plus the use of OTG (my hacked App is 4.1.15), allows me to do all of those things.

Yes, there are iresponsible flyers who might abuse it, but those folk exist on the normal App too...plus the dangerous flyaways reported on these forums are on latest firmware and Apps, so I'm not buying that argument.

I blame DJI 100% for this situation, I have emailed them, raised issues in these forums but they will not commit to anything in terms of improving the performnce for Android/UK customers.  

By their lack of actions, they are pushing Spark flyers underground, which is such a pity.

I suspect they assumed Spark flyers would accept the Spark as a selfie drone  (£700 LOL ) or upgrade to the Mavic if we liked the hobby.
They've misjudged the market big style in my opinion and are now trying to dumb down the Spark's capabilities with these updates...but it's too late....the genie is out of the bottle  :-)

For what you need FakeGPS App on the Phone ? It's not Related to CE/FCC Mode i guess, because the Location will come from the Spark and not from the PhoneGPS (my Phone is in Flymoode, no GSM, no GPS, nothing).

For the FCC Hack. To be honest, just use google - the hack is still open development, It's open published, everyone can read and make a decision.
