    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.

    I got the drone for a vacation in Hawaii. I was concerned about its handling quality around ocean's windy conditions. I was very happy with it; it was very stabled. I got nice photo, video from the drone. I used a little cable to connect my phone and the remote controller; that way I don't need to use the wifi between them. It may save battery and have better signal. I am still learning about the drone. Overall, I am happy with the purchase.

    Almost Perfect Drone Package

    This deal by DJI is the best deal for the Spark. Don't waste your time with just the $499 Drone! The reason I gave this a 4/5 is because it didn't come with a micro SD card. The ones you order from DJI come with one why don't the ones from Best Buy? Luckily I had a 128 GB micro SD laying around. When you order the Fly More Package make sure you order an OTG cable from Amazon to get the most out of your experience.

    This is my second DJI drone. I started with a Magic Pro, then I bought this one. Why buy the lesser drone when I already have the pro?! Because it’s awesome! This thing is great fun, super quick to the sky as there’s no unfolding to do or gimbal clamp to remove, and you can fly it with nothing but the drone itself if you’d like. The spark can fly in higher winds than the Mavic, but the video transmission is not as robust. Same amazing flight characteristics as all their drones. Awesome first drone for anyone as this thing almost flies itself!

    This is not a ordinary Toy it is a cool Drone to fly. It is really easy to fly and learn some drone flying experience before to get hands on expensive drones. I loved flying my drones still learning hand gesture. I loved sport mode very responsive to remote controller and had a-lot of fun. Please check the surrounding before turning sport mode because its front detection collision is turnoff. Camera quality they mention it HD. so didn't expect more.

    This is a must have if you love to travel light every time. I love this Fly More Combo. My drone fits in one of the smallest pockets in my backpack saving space for accessories, food, first kid aid, etc. And have awesome video quality and awesome photos. Is close to having a flying Gopro. I got a Gopro Camera but after making some research I decided to go with this DJI Spark just for the size and quality. But in the other part I was dying for the Gopro Karma bundle. But was pretty big for me. And I like to travel light as always. But you will not regret it if you get this.

    For all experience levels, super easy to control and fly. The 1080p HD camera is no joke. You think you need 4K like what's on a Phantom4???? Nope not at all. I use this to fly around, get coverage at car and sporting events or at the beach. Very happy. Friend has a Phantom3 Pro, and I was skeptical with the spark, but I'm now glad I bought it. When comparing to the base model spark this is $200 more, however, you get the controller and an extra battery with $250 right there. The battery charger works great, plus this fly more package gives you a nice leather carry case. Well worth it.

    Ill be returning this and paying the 15% RESTOCKING FEE. Even with the controller the lag of the video is so bad it makes it almost dangerous to fly. You will end up in a crash in a hurry the range is bad and tethering it with a Android phone for Facebook live you loose all telemetry info you will absolutely loose the drone. If you have a iPhone its ok. Night pictures are pretty bad its got a small camera like what you have in today's cell phones, daylight does fine. it is what it is but for the bundle package and low flight time id just spend the extra money and buy a MAVIC

    This was my first drone I've ever bought and i wished i would have gotten it sooner. Pros: 1080p video/pictures Easy to fly Great distance Cons: Not really a con, but battery life is around 12-15 minutes, but with multiple batteries(i have 5) it's not an issue. Only other con is the instructions and initial setup. I used youtube videos for most of my questions and overall learning. I figures, I'm putting $400-$500 dollars into something I'm going to take my time and do it right the first time.

    after a myriad of research, I chose this fly more combo of the DJI spark as my first drone for recreational flying and photography. it's very simple to operate and yes this drone is required to be registered with the FAA. but $5 is not a big deal for 3 years. after doing calibrations and initial flights in the beginner mode, the drone is very simple to fly and it goes where you want it to go. the gesture mode works well and yes this drone can land on your hand easily. definitely a good beginner drone for video and photography enthusiast

    I really wanted to get into drones but didn't want to spend a ton of money so I got the Spark. I'm really impressed with the capability of this drone for the price. Recommend buying an OTG cable to connect your phone to the controller, can be bought for $5 or less. Not sure why they don't include that? Before I bought the cable I would get video signal loss when I flew too far away. The cable has improved the performance about 20%.

    My third DJI drone, I also fly a Phantom 3 Standard and Mavic Pro. This drone is a great one for quick-launch, short range, spur-of-the-moment shots. The palm launch and land functions are very useful. The camera is more than adequate, unless you need a professional one, in which case you would use a Mavic or Inspire. For the price, you get a big chunk of DJI tech that you won't get on the other drones such as Yuneec. Well worth a few extra bucks for the features and stability.

    Great “beginner” drone but even for beginners it will quickly grow to not feed needs. The palm controls don’t work as well as you think, and since it isn’t running the same connection as the DJI mavic pro your range in town with the spark will only be about 500-1000 feet if you go out to a more desolate area you can get out to around 4-5000 feet with video not being to bad this is with the OTG cable of course. If you just use WiFi you WONT get video feed further than 100-150ft

    Watched many drone video's and this drone meets up to it's expectations. The Fly Home feature saved me from losing a drone once again when the wind got ahold of it and I became confused about which direction to fly to get home. I hit the "Return to Home" button and within 30-45 seconds it had turned itself to face it starting point and the GPS signals brought it directly over my driveway before it began it's decent.

    Buy ther fly more kit, you get more batteries and the controller, with the controller you can fly way further I have flown approximately 2 miles away before I lose signal, then the drone turns around automatically and heads back to the take off point.. with the GPS it will hover within a couple inches in the air even with high winds... has hand gesture controls and with the controller intelligent flight modes which are very cool!! Buy this! You won't be disappointed I promise!

    Too hard to update firmware

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® Member

    Right off it wants a firmware update. Problem is, it doesn't understand it needs this update unless it's wifi is connected to the aircraft, and of course it cannot download the update unless it's connected to your wifi. Catch 22, it has to be connected to two wifi's at the same time. After an hour or so going back and forth it finally downloaded and installed the update. I was on the edge of boxing it back up and returning it to Best Buy.

      Hey Montekay. I understand your frustration and it likely needs to be more clear. I'm sure you've already figured this out but to anyone in a similar situation: To install a firmware update, connect your phone's wifi to the remote. When alerted that you need a firmware update, disconnect and connect to your home wifi. After it finishes downloading, reconnect to your remote and complete the install. Restart your aircraft and you are good to go! DJISupport

    i just recently really got into drones and this one handles very well. Has a sport mode once you get use to the standard mode. Be cautious in this mode because it FLIES. This drone takes very good pictures and video. The controls are easy and you can use your phone as the controller or use the controller with your phone. Battery flight time is about 13 to 15 minutes. Generally the batteries take 40 minutes to recharge(the batteries can't be hot for example after flying or they won't charge until cool)

    Great drone for anyone to learn on. Very responsive to commands and quick, top speed is 30+mph in sport mode. Has 2 modes, one for learning with a top speed of about 6mph and sport mode for those with some experience. Flight time of 12-15 minutes which is expected with such a tiny drone. Have not used the gesture commands yet, have only flown with the remote. Added a tablet mount that allowed me to use a tablet rather than a smart phone for a screen. Could not be happier with this purchase.

    Love this thing, it’s my first drone and have been very happy with it so far. But... read the directions, I know part of it was me but the set up and operation are more complicated than it needs to be. The manuals (all 7 of them) are extremely small and even with good eye sight are hard to read. The drone is very easy to operate, even for a beginner. I think for the price this is a great first drone, small and take anywhere size and excellent pic and video quality.
