    Warranty is Worthless

    Although this drone at first did an okay job at flying, it has an extreme amount of defects. Return to home button never was effective as the device NEVER seemed to get gps service. After the drone took off by itself into the woods, after me pressing land about 8 times with no result, I tried to use the find my drone feature which was completely ineffective. After searching for about 45 minutes, I finally gave up thinking that the warranty would cover it. However, apparently all they could offer me was a 15 percent off discount, because I was flying in a bad environment. This is very interesting to me, as it was a wide open space with no obstacles around except the very distant forest that the drone took off too by itself. I spent 450 dollars on this item, which as a college student isn't an easy amount of money to drop, and the customer service was not only awful, but the warranty was also completely worthless.

    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.

      We're really sorry you had bad experiences with the Spark. While it was not designed specifically for commercial use, it has show to be capable of being used beyond the inted application with great success. If all the proper precautions were taken, please contact our support team for insight into the causes of the poor experiences as well as possible warranty application. Thanks for sharing your experience. DJISupport

    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.

    This is an excellent indoor drone. I have yet to have any luck flying this guy out doors. For about twice the price, the Spark is about 10 times more capable. Go with the Spark

    Hurry highly recommend getting yourselves the controller that is sold separately that Best Buy does not sell it will greatly improve the range

    They are (DJI) completely lying about the flight time. They say 16 min of flight time but honestly it won't even last for 10 min.

      Hey Thomas. Sorry you had a less than optimal flying experience. It's important to note that the listed flight time is in optimal conditions (no wind, 10mph flight forwards for extra lift, etc.) as well as pushing the battery as far as it goes. In common operation the flight environment is not optimal and low battery will kick in at low percentage to ensure a safe and steady landing. DJISupport

    Loud and distracting for commercial use.

    The Spark is distracting when used in photography.

      Hey MPG. Sorry the sound was a problem for you. We do offer quieter DJI drones like the Mavic Pro Platinum, but because of the small size of the Spark to maximize battery life there likely would be a sacrifice via lift lost which would be a consequence of lowering the volume. DJISupport
