I had some strange behaviour today with my Spark. I was flying in an open space and way above or close to trees.

I was intermittently getting the obstacle avoidance beeping and the Spark would not advance. I didn't actually see the message, just a quick flash on the screen with the beeping.

Thoughts?

Maybe dirty sensor on the front?....  I would do a IMU and compass calibration just to be safe..

This happens a lot in early morning or late afternoon when you might be headed towards the sun.  Just rotate 180 degrees and keep on in the same direction...

Birds? Birds are very interested about this little stuff, what is buzzing like a big bug. Usually 4-5 birds are always flying around my spark until they find out, they can´t eat it...

Hi there, thank you for reaching out and we're very sorry for the Inconvenience. Regarding with chances for that could be the sun glare just like the previous post said and as well as some birds.
