Hi,

Great story to fly for, good to have your Spark back again.
Can you see anything strange for the battery?

nice video - super recon and discovery - very cool all round. 1 of my 4 batteries for my mavic pro always requires an extra push down for the second clip to click in. as my batteries are numbered i always know which one to give extra attention to ensureing it is firmly seated.

Great job in finding your lost Spark.  For future, you might want to change colors from B/W to Neon Orange/Yellow.  And maybe Duck-tape battery in?

Have you checked to see if battery that takes extra push down has a bubble on bottom or warping?

How you saw that is beyond me, great pick up ! Just putting it out there, but maybe the spark hit the power lines by the looks of the position ? Anyway a happy ending

thanks yes it is in perfect physical condition i gave it a good looking and feeling over - i guess one of the clips is marginally out of ideal position, that seems to be all thats wrong with it.

Hi,

No maybe when all the snow melts.
The hole in the snow where I found my Spark was so small so you can imagine how small the hole must be wherever the battery went down.
The snow where the Spark fell is about 5 feet deep but the snow bank was about 7 feet.
The most snow we’ve had here since the 1800s

Last known point was before power lines and was at around 45 metres height. Thank goodness it didn’t go down over frozen lake.

Wasn’t as sure when I was looking for it. But it was the only clean hole in the snow around that area.
I was a lot more positive in post editing lol.

Doubt it will fall out again, even on impact!

I see potential for after-market (aka 3rd-party) battery.  Comes with built-in - strobe, auxiliary power-port for spot lights, GPS tracker, and silicone strap to keep battery with drone.
