    Great Drone

    I purchased the Spark due to the small size. its my first drone and have found it very easy to fly. it is very stable and predictable during flight. I would recommend the Spark Combo pack that comes with a controller. i have flown using a phone as a controller and it works but not as positive as the controller. The controller also allows Sport mode that takes the flying to a whole new level of fun. This thing is addicting! I would recommend the DJI Care refresh from DJI. you can order it within 48 hours of activating your drone without any hassles. after that its a hassle of suplying a video of proof of operation.

    Very Limited Range!!

    This $499 DJI Spark out of the box will give you the following results: Altitude of a max 161 feet and distance of 328 feet with a max speed of 7.5mph using the smartphone only. You will need to purchase the separate controller for $149 or the fly more combo for $699 in order to achieve the full capabilities of this drone. Also obstacle avoidance will stop the drone in its place, it will not maneuver around tree branches and you'll have to move the drone to continue. Bottom line... solid built drone, but felt misled by advertising on what I was actually getting out of this box. Save yourself a headache and some money by just buying the fly more combo or check into a cheaper alternative.

    This was my first drone purchase and I had it for about 6 months now and am overall very happy with it. Its small, lightweight and very easy to setup with you smartphone. Pro: Small and Portable Easy to use Can use indoors but be careful It holds up pretty well in windy situations Camera quality is amazing for the everyday user Cons: Battery life is about 12 mins No 4K camera I wouldn't recommend this for professional use because you dont have control of the video setting. Its only 1080p Overall I am happy with this purchase I ended up getting a few accessories for it like the Remote Control, an extra battery and a few memory cards.

    try to be fair with this drone is good but to fly using your phone is very hard if not almost impossible... Best Buy does have an option to purchase the controller with other things but is over 200. I think if a drone is going to cost $400 should have the controller with it this doesn't which I paid attention before purchasing but I did purchase a controller from somewhere else... Best buy should offer a discount if you purchase the drone kit with the drone... I think it would be better and the the stars rating would be excellent

    Be aware of "no-fly" zones

    Posted
    not1tech

    3 stars for "potential" quality. Because after having the unit for less than a week, buying a tablet for a controller and doing all of the updates, I now have a $700 paperweight. The No-fly zones will not allow me to even launch at my house. I am 3 miles from a small municipal airport and 7 miles from a retired military base(now civilian airport). My tablet screen displays a red 'unable to launch' message. I can't even test the unit! I understand the safety aspect. The no fly totally defeats the purpose of purchase, No fly is built in, bypass maybe?

    Battery falls out

    My son bought the DJI spark and was very excited to use it as it was fairly easy to get going once he watched the videos online. The manual does nothing to help understand how to use it. Took it out to show his friends and the battery dropped out. This was within 24 hours of buying the product. The drone fell to the ground and broke. Fortunately the people at Best Buy stood by their product and gave him a replacement. Not more than 48 hours later had the same thing happen. Returning and hopefully will get my money back.

      Hi Notatechno, we're sorry to hear of your frustrating experience. You are correct that the included manual could definitely be improved, but until then we have amazing resources available online in both written and video guides. The problem you are describing is incredibly rare and usually is a result of a lack of ensuring the battery is properly connected. This is not to imply any fault, rather to inform potential future customers from having a poorly seated battery. DJISupport

    Great, sturdy drone

    This is a great drone for a beginner because it's very easy to fly and very sturdy. The video is 1080p, and it's amazing. I have a drone with a 4k camara and I never shoot in 4k. The video quality is beautiful and the file sizes are much smaller than 4k. The size is the best thing about it but it also is a bit of a drawback when it comes to battery life. They state 16 min flight time but it's really more like 10min. You will need more batteries. I have 5 and wish i had a couple more. This is not a phantom or mavic so it's not fair to compare to those, but for what it is, its amazing.

    I was skeptical about this bottom of the barrel drone provided by DJI but wow I have been amazed at all the technology packed into this thing! The gesture mode is cool and it tracks you and follows you. Highly recommend buying the remote because your range is extended 10x! Ive flown this thing 1200ft in the air and it takes great panoramic sphere images. It only takes 1080p video which is great for hobby use I just wish it would do it at 60hz for smoother video. But I have been blown away by this little guy. Highly recommend.

    Best mini drone

    This is my first pricey gadget that I had to fly on air ever. I bought this to use for covering videos during vacations.wished I bought it with the controlller. Even without the controller this little thing gets the job done. May not have a 3 axis gimbal and 4K but it still a great little drone. The flight time isn’t the best but 10 to 13 minutes of flight time is more than enough for me. Plus video captures on this thing is so smooth and clear. Looking forward to take great cinematic aerial videos Got this during the sale so I save a 100 off Thanks Best Buy and DJi

    Had a very cheap off-brand drone before this; also a DJI Phantom which I ended up crashing in an ill-advised flight near high rises at the beach... The Spark is very easy to use and loads of fun to fly. I am amazed at the precise control the Spark allows and how FAST it is when in sport mode. Would HIGHLY recommend this to users of many ages - main advice would be to start slowly, keep on training mode for a while and maybe have a friend show you some tips if possible. Would buy this again for sure!

    Fantastic Mini Drone

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    My employer just gifted me with this drone... absolutely the queen of mini drones. Flies great. Super stills and videos. Image stabilization is very good… even in quite a strong wind, the videos are stable. With GPS, ground and collision detection, as well as multiple flight modes, there is a bit of a learning curve to use this beast. On the other hand, you can use this machine to make professional quality videos and stills. I probably would not have bought one of these "just for fun" because of the cost, but I am very happy to be gifted with it.

    This little drone is amazing. The image quality, the autonomous functions, and everything works as I expected it. I highly recommend getting the remote control for it, or purchasing the bundle right off the bat. The battery life is short, but enough time for fun, and amazing for how well this thing flies. With the controller you can put it in to SPORT mode and the thing zips...that's the only time I almost crashed it, because I was flying a little too close to some trees and couldn't stop fast enough. You will no be disappointed with this purchase.

    Flies Great, Excellent Value for the Price

    For a $350 drone, you can't really beat the functionality and the price. This little drone has many of the same features as more expensive drones, and the camera footage is exceptional as well. Being able to fly with gestures, your phone or the separate remote controller is a nice option. I would recommend getting additional batteries though, as you'll want to keep flying after the first one runs out. The Fly More combo might be the better buy, but the Spark alone is still a great aircraft.

    Spark is the mini drone. I use it as a tool for home inspection for roof inspection when the roof is in accessible. It is not the professional full size drone, but is the mini. I gave 3 stars since the storm took away my drone after I flew a handful times. The camera quality is impressive. I suggest to add a memory card into your purchase since picture quality will be better.

    Anyone looking to jump into drones won’t be disappointed with the DJI Spark. Super easy to set up and fly, provides nice aerial photos and videos. Once you learn the basics you’ll want to move up to a higher priced drone since the latency from drone to phone screen is a bit much for serious cinematography. The remote controller is a must have, and buy some extra props and a battery or two to keep you in the air

    I have purchased 3 of these for and they have been lost in less than 72 hours. I operate them in normal capacity and 2 have become lost on the fail safe auto pilot. The third suffered a prop failure and was destroyed. We had planned to use them for recovery efforts in our area after Hurricane Micheal but the Spark has proven to be inadequate for any real UASs hobby or enthusiast. Great way to get people into them but that’s it. Battery time is horrible.

    I had a drone shoot and my larger drone died. Not being able to purchase a big drone day of, I bought this. It is not 4k, but for the short inserts I use drone footage for, it is absolutley perfect. Ive since replaced may larger drone, but find myself pulling this one out frequently. I can go from the case to flying in about a minute. Great for grabbing ahots without drawing too much attention.

    Fun to take aerial photos and videos. Battery life is only about 20 minutes and I would spend the money and move up to the Spark Fly More pack to get a whole lot more functionality. The hand gesture controls are neat and respond most of the time, though you will look goofy to those who are watching you. The controls on the phone can be a little hard to get used to, especially if you have a smaller than 5 inch screen on your phone. Charging time via USB is slow.

    It certainly has lived up to my expectations for coolness! Images are fantastic and it is very unassuming. My suggestion; if you are a first time pilot, watch the videos,read all the included information, and take your time learning before launching. I personally wanted to protect my investment! I since learned that drones in general were the most returned item in 2016 in large part due to the pilots incompetence. Probably contributing to the 15% restocking fee today. Don’t pay a stupid tax!

    Having trouble connecting this drone to S8+

    I would like to give a higher rating but, this drone is very difficult to get going with an Android Phone. I have yet to be able to get this drone up in the air. I have the S8+ and I cannot get my phone to sync with this drone and as I have being doing some research this is a very common problem. I will update this review once,I'm able to get it working properly until then if you are using a Android device. Do your research to ensure you don't have the same problems I have had connecting.
