How did the gimbal perform with these mods? Were you able to yaw at full speed and get stable footage?Thanks for sharing the video but can't see much from there as you are flying at night.

I didn't change those settings.  Just the verticals and tilt.

Wouldn't the tilt affect the gimbal - pitch and roll axis? Also when you are going full speed and turning.

I don't really plan on flying 1st person with these settings.  This is a for fun 3rd person mode.  I've messed w/ the verticals on normal too because that was snail slow compared to how Sport was.  It felt and sounded stable at peak performance.

I could've went higher on the upward vertical gain but I didn't want to overload the system.  8.0m/s is plenty compared to stock.

Ok. I understand what you are up to now. But the Spark is primarily a camera done. People have video recording ON most of the time while flying. So I am not sure too many people will be interested in these mods if the footage gets affected.

I would not try to come down with 6m/s in case there is no wind at all.
That could speed it up, even more.
And it seems, with this settings, you loose about the time in battery life, that you gain by being up/down quicker.
How much amps did the battery have to deliver at full up?
How warm was it, after landing?
I don't really see the big advantage, here.
You paying, assumingly, with quicker aging of every part!

Interesting stuff!
Can you also change the camera settings (like framerate 25fps?)

Hi Montfrooij,

Unfortunately not, that seems to be hardcoded.
30fps would be great though...

The Spark speed is slow on ascents and descents.  That is now fixed.

Yeah, indeed!

How about flying this test with the Go4 Mod 2.0 in cinematic mode, instead of sport on the RC?

I don't see the app but I don't trust anything other than Go and Go4.  You can adjust the brakes in the parameters I assume but I left them alone.  You can just ease off the sticks instead of going full off.

I could've gone crazier and adjusted more settings but all I really care about is the vertical performance and tilt angle.

The app is, imho, a original Go4, version 4.1.15, with just the Mavic flight modes released for the spark
Google "Go4 mod 2.0" to find it.
And as I have learned in here, the cinematic mode is a slightly damped sport mod.
Up to 50 kph, but no nodding/tilting in curves and side flights
For cinematic filming effects

yeah, I don't trust using it

It works fine, I am flying it a lot.
Every POI is with that app, p.ex.

You can modify your Mavic Pro parameters too to be faster.

I can't believe no one cares.  The difference between the mod and no mod is like Spark V2.0.

I don't need speed.
But I might dive into the other parameters!

The Oxford Dictionary of Abbreviations
This one, p.ex ;-)

What does the video look like?

Good question.  not sure if I did video that. or all of it.
I played with the options, turning the spark in every direction, pointing forward, backwards, sideways, every posible angle and spinning it during the POI, to see if any nodding or tilting would happen.
36kp/h is the max, it is offering for POI, but still, it is sport speed ;-)
(I am on ft, at time, 'cause I had to reinstall the app yesterday ;-)

I can link you one post, that is showing cinematic mode in video

It is not my video
The video is from the guy who pointed out, that cinematic mode is going up to sport speed without tilts in curves.
But since he doubled the speed of the video, I think he did 1 sec of 60fps with 2 secs of 30 fps.

It would be cool to POI on demand w/ the Spark.  Perhaps when the Skydio 2 comes out, they will unlock all the features of the DJI potential to keep up.

Aside:
The mod 2.0 can be installed ASIDE every other  Go4 version, you can find
So there is not that much of a risk!
You can always kill the app, restart the original, pause the flight with the pause button
And you get flight records, into the ori app, in case you update the records
Also it still has google maps

I found a video, not that POI from the picture, but the same location, just a smaller radius.

36ish kph POI max speed, video Speed x 4

Oh, I did that already, some month ago.  Mostly the "POI" is just the anchor for the circle, nothing interesting there.
But I think, I found two scenarios you would like to see.
Both are speed up, the second one also was with slowly descending (a "real" hyperlapse  ;-)

Anyway, I really think that you won't get around trying yourself. To see and check, what you want.
Install it aside your  Go4  and  check it out!

Doesn't look that smooth.  Can you adjust the speed of the orbit?

I think you should test it yourself, better.
At the boat, I had wind warnings, at the field I played with speed and height.

Anyway, my hint was just about: There is a Go4 out there, that just seems to be a original Go4 but with all at that time available flight modes open for the Spark.
