    Max Height indoors

    I have found the answer! Or rather a member of 'Spark Pilots' has. because I have no GPS the optical sensors take over and they appear not to be able to work above thirty feet. But I have found out I can fool them bu starting at a higher take-off point, i.e. the choir loft!

    The display on my phone says No Positioning (Atti) I took off from the ground and selected Tripod mode. Flew up to approximately thirty feet and the Spark refused to do any higher.

    Max Height indoors

Not the phone as it...

    DJI Spark compass calibration

    I am just about to purchase the DJI Spark and am a little confused over when to calibrate it. I have been told it is not necessary every time but should be done when changing locations. Does that mean a far away location, of, for example, only one of a couple of miles?
