    OK Drone But For Poor Battery Life & Mid·dling App

    First things first, if you buy this drone, get at least these accessories right away: spare battery, battery charger, remote, microSD card and a USB cable to connect remote to phone/tablet. Secondly, throw away the useless and misleading manuals that come with the drone and remote. Instead, watch the tutorial videos and read the flight tutorials and user manuals in the app (click the 3 horizontal lines at top right of the main page, then select Academy). Here's my opinion of the Spark: Pros: useful app (when it works). The flight record is a nice feature which lets you review previous flights, including stick action. It has some really nifty quick shot features built into it that allow for automatic video recording on pre-programmed paths. The built-in editor is okay for basic videos. The Spark has a great camera that takes some amazingly stable video. It also has a sport mode which removes all speed inhibitors (as well as obstacle avoidance) and makes for some really fun flights. Other features that make this a very powerful entry-level drone: return-to-home, gesture mode, active track (kinda-sorta "follow me"), Cons: very poor battery life -- they claim up to 16 minutes of fly time, but I've only been able to get 11 max, and that includes the time it took to return to home because of low battery level. The user manual that comes with the drone and the remote are terrible and I wasted hours trying to decipher them in order to get everything connected for my first flight. It sure would have been nice for the app to direct you to the tutorials right on the first startup instead of having to dig for them. The app itself is a bit overwhelming; kind of information overload. It should offer a learning mode for low-level, low-speed flights, without all the popup alerts, warnings and information, to simply get a feel for how the drone flies. The app loses GPS and, more frightening, RF signal too frequently. It also loses the WiFi signal, which is why using a short USB cable to connect the remote with your phone/tablet is a better bet. Finally, the video recording can be spotty; all to often I get videos at 0Mb, meaning they were corrupted. Count on a good microSD card inserted into the drone for your footage. All-in-all, this is a fun drone with some powerful features, that would benefit from a better battery and an improved app.

    I wanted a drone that wasn't a toy and could take some aerial shots of my home and recreational photos. I did a little online research and the DJI Spark got consistently positive reviews for beginners who wanted to learn to fly a "real" drone that does more than simply challenge you to maintain its position in the air. I connected to my Android phone and though that seems convenient I will eventually be buying the DJI remote for my Spark. The reason I mention this is that with my phone I'm restricted in my speeds and my range. That being said the DJI Go 4 app works very well and is easy to use. The Spark uses multiple GPS signals with its built in GPS receiver to maintain its position while taking pictures and to also allow it to return home (RTH) when you want to end the flight or when the battery reaches critical low level. The first flights went well, I suggest researching various YouTube videos, start with DJI's videos and then look at productions by "Kloo Gee" and "jeven dovey" to begin with. They offer experience driven, common sense advice about important things you really need to know and how to drill down to understand them and fly your Spark safely and effectively and have a little fun at the same time and to also take pictures and videos worth watching while it's flying. I do want to say I've only taken 16 flights so far but I really enjoy my Spark. I've bought 2 spare batteries, an aftermarket landing gear and a basic case to organize all my gear. I've been flying in temperatures ranging from 25? F to 60? F, the low temperatures do affect battery life and I get flying times ranging from 9 to 13 minutes. The Spark weighs in at .66 lbs and as that's greater than .55 lbs you must register your Spark with the FAA prior to your first flight. Remember, line of sight flying only, 400' vertical limit and respecting no-fly zones and to inform airports within 5 miles that you'll be flying your drone within the mentioned limits. The control you've with this drone is incredible but remember to make sure you've GPS signal, otherwise you're flying at your own risk. There's a beginner mode that reduces your speed and range and unless you've flown before use it for the first few flights, after that, don't be afraid to leave beginner mode! My wife enjoys it too! The only thing I might have done differently is to have bought the Mavic Pro which given the fact it comes with a DJI remote and can fly faster and has more than twice the battery life of my Spark. I want to say that I'm not disappointed, just offering advice is all. Watch the YouTube videos, consider the "Flymore" package version of the Spark or the Mavic Pro but if you want fun, good pictures and video and enhanced flight modes, you can't do better than the Spark.
