  1. So has anyone else noticed that 4.1.10 (at least on Android) forced the proper regional settings even if you hit "cancel"? Not a huge deal on Android as 4.1.10 only seems to add a 3 second countdown for Dronies but more problematic for iOS as it's probably harder to downgrade?
  2. Is it me or does the Android 4.1.10 version now FORCE the CE mode ? I thought I had maybe tapped on the wrong box but it's done it three times in a row now, even when hitting cancel the Spark reboots into CE mode and the FCC mode has to be reactivated with a modded 4.1.09. I hadn't noticed at first because I fly with OTG normally and you can't see the 2.4Ghz channels but the range was so poor I switched to Wi-Fi and noticed I had the 13 CE channels.
  3. ok, thought there might be a changelog of sorts, adding waypoint compatibility in v36 was pretty big!
  4. ok so I'm patching v419 as it seems v4110 is not patchable due to added security and it's building a v37. Is there a way to see what's changed between versions ? v36 added Spark waypoint compatibility apparently ? Thanks !
  5. Cool, can someone share an .apk ? Thanks !
  6. Wow it looks like someone's figured out how to upload waypoints :
  7. Can 4.1.4/5/8 be modded too? There's a bug in the patched 4.1.3 that prevents panorama assembly and that's a tad annoying, thanks!
  8. 2.5km is a lot though probably not very useful on a daily basis since you probably have barely enough to get back!I top out at 1.5k which is fine. Don't get the region warning oddly enough, maybe the FCC patch that I never removed works now!
  9. Interesting, when I did a 100 meter Dronie this morning all of a sudden the feed became laggy (haven't checked the result in the app yet but it can't be good), might be related to the caching. Actually I switched caching to the SD card, maybe not a good idea as the built-in storage would be faster. That could explain why I was finding 4.1.15 to be a bit "laggy" compared to 4.1.13. With 4.1.5 I lost the connection this morning over the water at 1.5km using the "range extender" which doesn't sound normal since I got 1.5km last week with 4.1.14over land without extenders.
  10. "Best Regards" my a😈😈! What an idiotic post, are you having a bad day or something?! I'm not even going to waste my time commenting since you dug out an old post to go on that little rant without even bothering to read the related follow-up messages. Anyway back on topic, happy to report that with the latest Android updates the little Spark is performing well and I've been racing motorboats, tons of fun! More battery life like on the Mavic wouldn't hurt of course but you can't have everything. The DJI app does seem to be a little less snappy for some reason but at least there haven't been any crashes.
  11. Still get the prompt to change the WiFi region and can still cancel and distance is fine in 5.8GHz (haven't tried 2.4) so I'd say it's all good! It's likely you could go back to FCC using the modded 4.1.3 if you messed up but don't want to try !
  12. I don't think anyone here's gotten that to work reliably, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, see the previous messages about it.
  13. Of course it's related, always click on cancel to stay in FCC mode. It seems the only sure way to get back to FCC is with the hacked 4.1.13 Android.
  14. No the hacked 4.1.13 has FCC built-in.
