Hello from Norway (yes, Europe) I have been flying the Spark without any cable and it seems to fly just fine. I am able to choose 2,4 GHZ and select frequency if I want to (yesterday I had ch 9) and I can fly at the default 5,8 GHZ and had freq. 149. I assume the band (2,4 vs 5,8) is the connection between RC and AC, i dont know if my iPhone connects with to the rc with the same band or opposite or something, but it all seems to work fine. Given the limited range here in CE I don't understand what all the fuzz is about regarding Europe and frequencies. What am I missing? If anyone cares to explain it would be greatly appreciated.
