    Hey everyone...new to drone flying and just love it!
    The Spark is really easy and fun to fly. When I hit the RTH button, it goes up to about 200 ft, then comes back down to land. How do I reset the height so it doesn't go so high and waste battery life? I also want to keep it out of high winds up there.
    Thanks!

    You can adjust the altitude by going to the main menu, then the top icon on the left (looks like a phantom) then setting the RTH height value there. Just remember that you should set it higher than the highest obstacle in your area, and dont take off in the shade under a tree!

    You can adjust the RTH Altitude in the following section of DJI GO (while your Spark is connected to DJI GO):

    Keep in mind this setting is always set in meters.
