    Palm launch and landing…you must have the hand prop guards…this thing will destroy your fingers if not properly handled…never ever use the grab and turn 90 degrees technique…that is a crash safety feature not a landing feature!

    Hey Steve, thx for the video. When I plug in my OTG cable, it charges my phone for 1-2 seconds then my phone no longer recognizes it. Do I still have a connection being made from controller to remote, or must I physically be able to see my phone charging to know the connection is being made?

    My finding recently was that the OTG cable actually caused my pixel 2 to drain faster. Maybe since the last app update it will be fixed. Im not holding my breath. I bought the cable for just as you suggest to have rock solid connection.

    There is actually a better way to launch the Spark from your hand:
    1. turn on the drone.
    2. wait till it connects.
    3. then make sure the camera is pointing towards your face and press the button on the battery 2 time quickly then wait for the propellers to start wait so they start spinning fast enough then let go and that's it.
    Note: the drone will automatically be in gesture mode if you use this type of Palmlaunch.
