    Cool Little Drone!

    I had been waiting on a quality drone, that didn't cost and arm and a leg, that also had some decent flight time. The Spark meets all those criteria and more. While I would love to have the Mavic Pro, I just couldn't justify the price for what I wanted to use it for, mainly some quick flight jaunts to maybe get some interesting footage or shots while out and about. The Spark is insanely easy to set up and just as easy to fly. Though, to be fair, the hand gesture thing is a bit more of a gimmick than an actual flight model. It works well for taking selfies and wowing people but for maximum flight ability you of course need to use the remote. After downloading the app onto my iPhone 7+, I updated the firmware, and was flying within minutes. That being said, I would HIGHLY recommend buying an OTG (On The Go) cable and hardwiring it to your controller rather than just relying on the wi-fi set-up. Since I have done that, there has not been a single dropped frame or any control issues. You can find one online or in stores for less than $4 usually and you already have the cable for your phone, though I also bought a short Lightning cable to keep things from tangling up. Video and photo quality is stellar and it is incredibly easy to set up some neat shots. It also has a ton of safety features to keep you from doing something stupid with it and harming you, a loved one, or the drone. My only quibble with it so far is that I guess I'm within the flight path of the local airfield and it limits some of my maneuvering window, but that is easily solved by taking it elsewhere to fly. This drone is heavy enough to warrant FAA registration but that was done in 5 minutes and only cost $5. If you aren't planning on doing serious photo/videography with your drone and don't need super long flight times to get where you want to shoot, this is the drone for you. A lot of fun and really easy to use.

    This is a cool drone. I’ve only uses it a couple of times so far but it has been easy to fly so far. This is my first drone. And the sensors have worked well. The home button is cool. My battery got low and it was about a block from my house so it told me it was coming home because of the battery and it did all by it’s self and landed about 2 ft from where it took off. It handled pretty good in the wind to. It would give you a high wind warning on your phone but wouldn’t move from it’s spot and the video was perfectly still no shake. It’s not 4K but videos are clear and so are pics. Haven’t got a chance to do hand gestures or follow me yet but plan to soon. If your in a neighborhood the signal will be a little weaker do to all the WiFi signals around compared to the country but it is still strong. I flew it up to 350ft up and two neighborhoods over and still had half of my signal bars left. Then I hit the home button and it was back in no time and landed within feet of were it left. I have to admit I did get to close to a branch once and it hit it and shut down and dropped about 6 or 7ft. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. But it powered right back on. It made me recalibrate compass. But then launched right after and flew fine. I then went inside and ordered the exstended service plan from the dji site. Lol. I bought the fly more combo you get more for the price. I did also buy a carrying case for it I didn’t like the setup it came with ( a styrofoam box for the spark and a carrying bag for accessories). It’s so much more compact than the phantoms and the case is so much smaller. A lot easier for transport. I do recommend extra batteries do to the 10 to 15 min flight times so you can fly while you charge. A+ so far.

    So, I waited about a month before getting the courage to buy this bad-boy. Let me just tell you, good things come in small sizes (well some things do) and the Spark was one of them. This thing is perfect for selfies, personal movies, checking yourself out and spying on the neighbors (Just kidding) but in all seriousness, I thought it was going to be mediocre and this thing blew me away, well in high winds, and the app is easy to use. The RC makes the experience that much more unleashed. Only complaint is that the battery life is so low but that is expected due to its size. Don't get me started about sports mode. Pigeons didn't know what hit them as soon as my little Spark came zooming in. The camera is amazing. Only thing is that its not the best for like a panoramic scene when turning clockwise or counterclockwise. The video kinda gets a little weird. It goes from buttery smooth to a tad bit flakey but let me tell you, Its totally worth it.

    Fantastic First Drone (NOT A TOY)

    This was my first REAL drone and it is a blast. However, PLEASE do not purchase this thinking it is a toy. First, it is quite complex to know what you are doing correctly. Sure, you can get this thing flying in a matter of minutes, but there is much you need to know before picking these up. There are important FAA regulations you need to follow as well as those of you local jurisdiction. This thing may be small, but you can very easily get yourself in trouble or put someone else in serious danger without knowing what you are doing. If the person isn't old enough/trustworthy enough to drive a car, then they should not be piloting one of these devices. Take it slow, learn the manual front-to-back, make sure you are in a safe space to fly and you will have a blast.

    Best Priced Drone For Cinematic Footage

    Don't let the 1080p fool you, this drone will capture some amazing footage and stills. In sport mode it zips across the sky at roughly 34mph, has stable flight with smooth clips. The bag I found to be a little small to carry everything, so opted for the LowePro Drone bag instead. There is not enough space to describe the beauty of flying this little guy. I have used it for a few months now on and off without issue. Live streaming can only be used with an iPhone device for some reason. There are really no flaws I could find. Make sure you have GPS lock before taking off or it could go bye bye. Flight time is roughly around 12 minutes each battery, but they charge up pretty quickly with the included dock. You can charge 3 batteries, your controller and another usb device. I would highly recommend this drone to friends and family.

    My First Drone

    I was completely new to drones and felt I did enough research for a drone. After making this purchase, ads just started jumping out from everywhere with better prices, features, this that and the other. There's a lot of differences between one to the next. You just have to choose your poison. I like the Spark. Sure, the battery life could be better, could have better control over where the camera lens works, but for my first one, it's a good learning tool. Didn't realize all of the restrictions associated with flying a drone especially now that I live in the city. Would have been perfect for my country living. Anyway, I got the bug, I'm buying all kinds of things for it and starting to learn how to make videos with my drone camera. One improvement for any drone I think would be to make it easier to see what end is forward when buzzing around.

    Definitely get the Fly More package. Without it, I’d be driven mad! The battery life is decent at 12-15 minutes but I enjoy continuing to zip around (max speed ~30 mph) once I have my recordings done. Controls were easy to pick up, you can set a beginner’s mode to restrict how for and how high your drone can go until you turn the mode off. You can fly this drone with just your phone but having the control makes everything much easier/more smooth. Once I figured out how to set it up to my phone (YouTube/Google was my friend during this part) I was up in no time. The carrying bag is also very handy, holds both batteries, the drone, and it’s cobtroller.

    I received a cheap drone for Christmas because we didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something I might not use a lot. The drone quality was ok but then the camera started to malfunction so I return the cheap drone and decided to go for a DJI. That was the best decision I could’ve made. The cheap one was a toy. This is in a different level. You get high-end quality on a more affordable price. I had so much fun with this drone that I created an Instagram channel just for it. I was waking up early in the mornings just to get sunrise shots. It has a lot of features and the camera quality is very good. So far I have been very happy with it and haven’t had any problems at all.

    dJI DRONES ARE THE BEST ON THE MARKET!

    FLShark

    This is my first DJI product which I bought Spark combo pack for longer & extra flight time, plus, you get a free carrying case for your batteries and charger that's included. If you’re a beginner, I would highly recommend burying the Dji Spark and upgrade later ones you are very familiar with your unmanned aircraft. It took me a few days to learn how to calibrate the drone and the compass in the IMU settings in the DJI GO PRO app. Whatever you do when you get any DJI products it’s got to be updated to the latest firmware or you will not be able to calibrate it, which was the problems I am having until Dji tech support walked me thought the process. DJI has Outstanding customer service and there is no other drone that is more user friendly then the DJI GO PRO4 app on the market.

    Finally bought a drone. Have been wanting one for a while...initially wanted the mavic air but decided on the spark because of the cheaper price and wanted to start out as basic as possible. The quality is outstanding. Well built and solid to be so small. Picture and video quality are fine for what I use it for...traveling, exploring, mountain biking with the family. Haven’t tried all of the features yet. I do recommend getting it well before you go on any trip or whatever you plan to use it for so that you can learn how to fly it. Setting up a new drone and learning to fly it comfortably takes an extensive amount of time. The only thing lacking is the case. Would like to see a better thought out case for traveling or fitting in a backpack.

    I am new to the drone world and did a lot of research before buying. Price was high but when asking others around I decided on the DJI Spark. Lots of competing brands however I decided on DJI due to the fact that not only were they the first in the industry they continue to provide updates to issues that come up. No drone is perfect but they constantly upgrade firmware to stay as up to date as they can. I have been very happy with my purchase but as a beginner I feel the Spark is a perfect fit. Provideds more than enought options to use but not overly complicated. Manual a little hard to read and understand as it is a foreign company. I read the manual forward and backward but was happy to find so much information on the web and youtube. Found that most fly aways were due to pilot error and almost had one of my own due to the error on my part.

    My first RC unit was 2 months ago. this is my second. Many features that I am still learning. The hand launch works about 75% of the time, but when it does it is cool. Auto Return to Home launch point (@ loss of RC signal and low battery). It has First Person live View, but you have to provide the screen via smartphone or tablet with free app. the printed directions included are sparse at best. DJI does have a downloadable operators manual as well as a YouTube instructional series (recommend both) There are many good instructional videos on YouTube by private enthusiasts. recommended accessories a case and adapter cable from tablet/phone to RC unit. Before purchase I recommend going to DJI FlySafe map to see USA no-fly zones (if in Red zone, unit knows it via GPS and will not launch). I would recommend,

    I recently purchased this to do aerial photography and aerial photography ONLY. However there are some downsides for a photographer, 1.no Raw file, 2.flight time. Now, with a good composition , photo edit skills and planned flights you should be good to go! I plan my flights prior to shooting and the 12mp camera is Crazy sharp. I haven’t tried the video, but I’ve seen footage and it looks great! Maybe leave that for another day. For aerial photography this works great for me. And for $500 more I don’t think the Mavic air is worth it, unless you need more flight time for video. Again, I plan my flights in advance to get the best for the time. Hope that helps someone! Follow me on IG to see the quality this thing captures. @joelroquejj

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.
