I only tried using it without the remote (using the phone) for the first time yesterday as i was hoping there was a way to get the AC to track the phone (like the Mavic), but sadly there isn't (that i could find anyway). Yeah, but if you're using a phone/tablet to operate your AC you seriously need to buy an RC, much better experience all round.

Always use the remote. I would think it has much better control with physical joysticks.

The Best or Nothing

So the Remote

More range + feeling more confident in flying + More stability in controls

I tried gesture. Boring. I tried phone. Starting to get better, but still not quite right. I tried tablet. Bigger screen, but still no speed and no range. I tried remote. I ended my trying there. No way I’m going back (unless I accidentally destroy my remote )! Remote only and forever!

never had any issues with phone until lately, The app keeps crashing but have always used the RC and has saved me a few times. Besides more control with RC than phone.

The only time I go without the remote is if I'm flying indoors. Otherwise, it's always with the remote.

Are there any cautions why don't you fly indoor with RC?

The reason i wanted one was so it could be flown with the remote so i always use the remote even when doing gesture mode just incase it does something i can still control it with remote. I hate flying drones with my phone.

Never!

The way I use it, I don't want to carry the remote. WiFi is better on Spark than my Mavic Air too!
