    If you're referring to 4.1.20 update be carefull when flying. My first flight with the new update it caused my controller to disconnect. The only thing that would work was the RTH function. I've gone back to 4.1.14 and not having any issues. In the process of trying 4.1.16 and 4.1.18. Hope this helps

    I made some short flights with 4.2.20 (Android/OTG/CE) yesterday without issue, but so far I've not experienced any connection issues with any release (only been fliyng a couple of months)

    Did you go back to 4.15? If so, how do we do that?

    Here is a link to all version on APKMirror. That being said, there is no 4.15. I see a 4.1.15, but that one is pretty old.

    Is it true that if you go back to an earlier version albeit a stable one and you lose your Spark due to a software or hardware related incident that DJI will not cover the loss under warranty? I know I read that somewhere. I am afraid to fly my Spark due to all of the stories that I have read concerning these latest Go 4 updates. Hopefully, DJI is working on a better and totally stable version for all devices.

    This thread is specifically about the Android version. Therefore the version numbers aren't the same.

    The current android version is 4.2.20 and the current iOS version is 4.2.21. I have generally understood the iOS versions to be more stable.

    I experienced very strong video lagging and even, for 1st time, disconnection between AC and phone! (At short distance less than 50m, AC in sight still fully controlable by RC. But "no signal" mentioned on the phone).
    So i decided to buy an OTG cable. And the miracle happened. Perfect real time video feed back! Even at distances of 1500m+. This allows you to point your camera where you want with good precision. And telemetry fully available.
    So my advice would be dont go back to previous versions. Just buy an OTG cable!! Very simple and easy to use, not as much as the wifi but the gain is tremendous.

    I have been flying with the 4.1.20 with a couple of batteries.
    I use otg and a 2.4ghz connection between rc and spark.
    I been having connection lost when flying on lower altitude. It never last long and reestablish pretty fast except yesterday I tried again, got to 320m away when it happend again. The RTH kicked in and after 5sec I gain control again.
    So I don't know if 4.1.15 would take the issue away but that is what I get with 4.1.20.
    Any one else with this issue?
