    Great for 2 hours - then lost GPS and it's gone

    I had a great time getting started with this drone. it was relatively simple to set up, although I had to reset it and the controller to get them to sync up. I had 3 or 4 very successful flights in "beginner mode" and learned how to control it. It crashed against the side of the deck and broke one propeller - my fault. But still in beginner mode, on the 4th or 5th flight, it took off to the southeast out of site and I was sure it was gone forever. However - it did TRY to come home - we heard it and saw it try - and it's lost somewhere in the forest. I would NOT recommend it on this basis. As a software guy, I recognize how cool a piece of engineering this is. But it failed me...

    The drone with the best bang for the buck

    We purchased the Spark for my father-in-law. He tried to get cheap quads flying with poor results. Once setup, the Spark is a joy to fly. The Fly More package gives you the extra battery and controller you'd be buying anyhow. Setup is why I dropped a review "star". Lots of updates and a quick start guide that leaves a lot to be desired. I'm a very technical guy and it was getting the best of me. Fortunately, I had the full manual PDF printed and bound so we could refer to it. Well, now I own a Spark of my own and it all makes sense. Once you understand how DJI does things it's easy to use. Maybe I was initially overthinking it. Lots of help online, buy one and get flying!

    Beginner Drone Fits all my Photo Needs

    Did a lot of research before buying this drone. Definitely get the Fly More Combo if nothing else but for the extra battery and the remote. Getting 15 minutes out of a flight is tough when you're on the go so extra batteries are a necessity for this smaller beginner drone. Having the remote is also a necessity as the hand gesture controls are just not sufficient and having glare on your device to control the drone just leaves too much leeway for chance crashes. So far, the Spark is very durable, easy to control (with the remote), and takes great quality photo and video. It's a hit with friends and family members around the holidays. Can't wait to get into spring to start filming all the colors!

    Best Drone Buy Ever!

    I have had several drones in the past and I have watched many videos of the DJI Sprint on YouTube and have been extremely impressed with the many features for the price. Last week, I purchased one from Best Buy and went through the installation procedure, but there was a glitch in the computer program and after a talk with tech. support, I was advised to return it and exchange for a new one. I returned the Sprint drone, but and ask for the "Fly More Combo" I checked the price and for only $200 more than the base price of $499, you can get a very complete package of extras. I added up the cost of the extras and found them to be around $375. I tried to place an order for that model and was told I would have to wait, probably a week or two because this item is not in stock yet, but it is a tremendous buy and I will wait!

    This is my first drone with a camera. I am amazed at all of the features they pack into such a tiny device. It's perfect for beginners and experienced drone Pilots alike. I'm extremely happy with the range and would recommend purchasing this kit as it has a case, two batteries, the remote, the charger, and extra blades. It is possible to crash it, but it is extremely difficult to do. I should know, I haven't crashed mine yet. I am also happy with the speed. it will go around 30 miles per hour when in sport mode. Additionally, the tripod mode is phenomenal. There is no noticeable wiggle or Jitter when watching the 1080p movies on a large screen television.

    DO NOT BUY! I'm telling you. Do not waste your money. Buy a tv or xbox whatever. Barely flew it and it crashed on its own after 2 hours. Sent it in and they have 'data analysis' done twice with same answer. User error crashed it. Total lie and want additional $260 to fix. No such thing as warranty. Don't buy the care package. One of biggest mistakes to buy this junk. If it works great. If you get a bad one. You're out almost a grand. Don't do it. Now I'm kicking myself. I either pay $260 or get it back broken. Told me I crashed it at 33 mph. It drifted and hit a wall on its own. They change their answer about speed after I called them out even though it flew itself into wall as well. Still gave me ultimatum to pay. Worst service ever.

    I have been wanting a good drone to film with for the longest time. But I didn't want anything but DJI. But obviously there products can be pretty costly. But there's a reason for that. I truly believe you get what you pay for and this thing does not disappoint. The image quality is good if you're ok with only 1080p. The drone itself is a breeze to fly. I had never flown any type of drone before. But I was able to have this up and flying within 30 minutes and have not had any issues yet. I've not had any close calls or crashes. If you've never flown a drone and are willing to buy something in this price range, I can promise you won't be disappointed.

    This is my second Spark, replacing my first one I had an oopsie returning home into a tree and crashed it. I have owned the Mavic Air and Pro. I like this one the most due to its ease of use and less fragile gimbal than my Mavic Pro. The flight time is okay, and signal can get interrupted in congested area, but I use an OTG cable and make sure the antennas are properly adjusted for best reception. I have been extremely happy with my picture results from the spark. As seen below it doesn’t get much better for the money. I also like the fly more combo for the charger and nice carrying bag.

    I initially bought a DJI phantom 3 which was phenominal. But I found it tobe very big and bulky and replaced it with dji spark. Having already used it for 8 months at various locations I feel good about my decision. I just wish the battery could have charged faster and it had 4k reaolution. Everything else is perfect for people like me who are amature photographer and occasional traveler. Make sure you buy the fly more combo. During thanksgiving the fly more combo sells at around 460$.

    This is my first drone and I'm amazed at all that I can do with it. I'm still learning to use it but the first few videos I've taken have surprised and impressed my family and friends. The Flight More package provides an extra battery, the remote controller and a multi battery charger. These are invaluable additions. The extra battery is important because the drone eats through the small batteries. I've purchased two additional batteries, and I can still charge all with the multi battery charger. The remote controller makes it easier for me to control the drone. I've also purchased a cable to connect the remote controller to my phone, which I strongly recommend.

    This is probably the easiest and most advance drone on the market for it's price. It takes amazing pictures and the video quality is great for its size. The gimbal makes everything smooth and the DJI app can tie your pictures and videos together to make you look like a pro. Get an extra battery, the flight time is less than 20 minutes so having three or more batteries can be beneficial if you want to use this for more than 40 minutes at a time. Pack it in its case and throw it in a backpack or carry on bag and launch it for that great picture or video on vacation. You can charge the battery from the the drone when on the go but it takes more than twice as long than the dock. Works best with an iOS device.

    Always wanted to fly a drone. I saw the DJI Spark was a Black Friday special and started studying. First, DJI only makes great drones. I went back and forth between the Spark and Mavic. Mostly because I wanted a drone that came with a remote control. IMPORTANT - if you buy just the Spark it does not come with a remote control and can only be controlled by phone app. A remote is available for an extra $120. That's where the Spark Fly More Combo comes in - it includes the Spark, remote control, extra battery, charger, and other accessories you want to get. If you're looking to getting into drones, this is a great start.

    I did some research before I purchased this drone. After reading up on handling and flight time on batteries I decided to purchase the Spark. The fact that it comes with extra propellers and batteries made it more appealing. This package also includes a charging hub and a bag to carry everything as well. I definitely recommend this package over buying items separately which costs a lot more. This is a great starter drone that also provides great pictures/videos. By the time you master the Spark you will be ready to upgrade to the larger faster models.

    This is my first grown-up drone. I had one of those drug-store-special heli's a few years ago that was pretty fun indoors although a pain to actually fly. I watched lots of video reviews on it and the accessories and the fly more combo is a must-have. The additional range with the RC is a mandatory item for what my plans are. So far, the camera has been great and I'm learning the manual settings. I think the carry bag is garbage and I'll be picking up a case in the near future with individual slots for each piece. All outdoor flights have been in the 20F's so battery range has been around 11-14 minutes. I look forward to many flights with this!

    I had the karma and though very nice with a backpack, its not truly functionally ready for travel. What I mean is, if you plan to travel, you will have the karma as an additional piece of luggage where with the Spark, you can throw this baby in your bag and go! Its light and compact. The hardest part of the spark is the setup with the remote. It took me several hours of frustration to finally get the remote paired with the drone to fly. That plus updates and calibrations, it can be hard. Once u get pass it, its smooth sailing and fun flying. Dont forget to register with the FAA.

    I bought this drone since I was new to flying drones and this one was the cheapest one from the industry leader. For being such a small drone it packs some awesome features and is very fun to fly. Like most people complain about once you get into the drone world a bit more, the fact that this drone runs on a wifi signal limits your range a bit but I have still flown this thing out toward the edge of it's advertised range and the other features that this drone packs in are awesome. Overall it is forgiving and fun to fly. A great done for someone who is deciding whether or not they want to invest further into this hobby.

    High quality starter drone as it's not only cheaper than their other popular drones, but is slightly easier to use and configure (less parts, settings and automated flying features). I recommend this if you'd like to learn the basics and you don't plan on using it for commercial missions. More experienced pilots may have frustrations with less settings, (much) shorter than advertised range and occasional video streaming issues. After 4+ weeks of testing, I'm still happy with it- but it likely won't be my every-day drone.

    I am totally new to drones and not real technical but I was able to figure most things out though I did have a friend that flies drones a lot and he helped me with some questions I had. Has some amazing technically and can do some really neat things like follow you, come right back to its take off spot and you can even fly it with just your hands. Just know that you will want at least one preferably two extra batteries since it will usually only fly for about 10 to 12 minutes before the battery will be near dead.

    Great "entry level" professional drone. 1080p

    From start to finish I knew what I was getting into with the Spark Drone. I have flown a Mavic Pro, and must say, this could be considered to be the Mavic's little brother. 1080p video is great. Photo quality in good daylight. Range is enough for many tasks, yet limited by the 15+- minute battery life. The Spark is easy to take off, and is packed with autonomous features and sensors.Top Speeds have reached 27mph in some moderate wind. GPS and hover work flawlessly. If you are looking for a versatile "entry level" professional Drone, look no further.

    I was skeptical being that this drones big brother (The Mavic series) had a much nicer gimble and shot in 4K. The camera seems so small on the Spark. But I have been blown away. It does not do very well in super low light conditions though. So after you get your sunset pics or videos, it is pretty well peaked out on camera performance. The video quality is pretty great. It does shoot full 1080p. Very crisp with little to no lag. Do yourself a favor and get this fly more combo for the controller alone. It unlocks so many more features that you cant do with just a phone.
