Sorry, my bad.
I missed that it was the answer to the "please use the DJI Go 4 application"

No worries, I wasn’t yelling.  I couldn’t get the stupid laughing emoji to work.  I’m sorry it came across like that.

AutoPilot works well so long as you stay within RC range

Waypoints are working well.  3 missions flown and no errors to report.  Footage looks really good for a 2 axis gimbal.  Quite impressed at the cinematic quality.  The drone never flew slower then 20mph.

Dear Stephen, for compatibility and reliability reasons please implement Waypoint and Orbit support for Spark in DJI GO 4.

Can Litchi and DJI Go4 work alongside one another on the same device (on Android)?
I mean, not activated together, but can one work when the other is installed? Does one activated some background process that may affect the other? Is it necessary to force-stop the other?

They can operate on the same device, but not at the same time.  I always use GO4 to check all the drones vitals and then I force close the application.  Actually all other applications.  Then I fly using Litchi.

That speed (20mph) seems about to be the speed, the gimbal can "follow" in all directions.
So Litchi flying in between P-Mode max SDpeed and Full Sport? Always?
Can that be adjusted?

Yes, it can be adjusted.  I had set cruising speed to 20 mph, with max speed set to 30mph.  The app switches between modes seamlessly.

I kind of expect that to come in one of the next updates.
it is not difficult, the Spark can already do it with autopilot, the modded Go4 app, so it need just to be unlocked.
And: Will pull a lot people away from 4.1.15, methinks!

Anyway, interesting to see the new RC firmware, if OTG becomes "fully supported" or just "for CS".
And what will be in the new firmware.

thanks a lot.
Sounds like I need to get Litchi.
Is it working with cable?

Not sure as I always fly with WIFI,  but yeah... you should get Litchi.  Honestly, I use it on all my DJI quads, and hardly ever use GO4 any more.  It just does everything better including being less convoluted.

Just asked google, litchi seems to have the "no show telemetry" OTG support that DJI Go4 introduced with 4.1.18. ;-)
But Litchi has this for a year now: OTG without telemetry but video feed and flying possible.
Mmmmmhhhhh!

So, it works with the OTG but doesn't show any telemetry?  So basically you need to use wifi?

Google points on topics/post with that outcome, only.

I mean, "my google", with my search input. ;-)

This is what I was thinking 6 months ago, but today I fail to see DJI coming up with any new features for Spark, there's no money in it for them.
