When I press “stop” in free flight, the screen goes black and the app starts trying to sync photos even while the drone is flying!
I had this happen when I had lost sight of my drone and I wanted to fly it home as quickly as possible. I thought my drone was lost, when I heard it overhead, and brought down safely.
- It seems like syncing should only happen when the drone is on the ground.
- It also seems like there should be a “return to home” button in the app when in free flight.
- I assume that the drone uses the RTH and battery fail-safe settings from the Go app (and max distance, altitude and camera settings), but I didn’t see this in the documentation?
Next time, I’ll try pressing the “pause” button to get out of photography mode, but it seems like a bad design.
(I’m using a Spark with Capture on Android. Pix4D is the only app that corrects the Spark’s crippled image geolocation information and free flight is the only mode supported on the Spark so I’m stuck with this setup until I get another drone…)
