    I updated dji go4 app to 4.2.20 on my android phone and on my first flight I had my spark 120mts high and 180mts away from the controller when it decided to disconnect from the controller. Nothing I tried would allow the drone to reconnect. Thankfully the RTH function allowed it to come back. I then flew the spark again using two batteries with a different android phone using the old go4 app and had no issues when the drone was 120mts high and 800mts away from the controller. Obviously there is a problem with the update. Interested if anyone else has experienced the same problem

    Did you changed your "insecure wifi password" before the flight?
    I did, and experienced same as you. Saved by RTH, RC never reconnected.
    I'm currently back on 4.1.5... flawless flying

    Same experience, plus my Spark now ignores the Record button and decides to start and stop recording whenever the hell it feels like it. I've also been prompted to re-enter my new password a couple of times. Makes no difference whether I'm connected to the controller by wifi or OTG cable.

    I don't trust my Spark with the latest Android update, and that's a bad feeling.
