I was filming inside my local church, with tripod mode and obstacle avoidance off, but could not fly above about thirty feet. The controller said max height reached. Is there a way I can get a bit higher? I could do with another twenty feet to get the shot I want.
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. The controller then said "Maximum height reached" I have used tripod mode outdoors with GPS with no problems. The church had at least another twenty feet of clear space above, just wouldn't let me go any higher.
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!
