Reviews around price (5.00 of 5)

  • Amazing drone and came in great condition would definitely purchase form these guys again, great price!
  • Lots of features and a good price for the entry level drone hobbyist.
  • great entry drone and the price and shipping was great.
  • If this drone was sold as it was with its limited features but at a much more fair and affordable price of say ($500 with the combo), then I would argue that this is a good entry drone with some very cool features
  • Again, if it was say $500 with the fly more combo, I think that would be a fair price

Reviews around camera (4.52 of 5)

  • The best camera is the one you have, and the spark can always be within reach.
  • I have a few DJI drones, I believe this one is the best for the price, lots of technology packed into this lil drone, great camera and flight operation, may want a few extra batteries though, also lights on spark are cool too, Happy flying!
  • The Spark has a great camera, and the remote is very responsive.
  • Problem is there's network lag between the Spark and your mobile device, so often what you see on your device is a few seconds lagged from the Spark's camera and the video signal frequently breaks up
  • Its really about use cases; I wanted something small (tiny) with a great camera that I can take photos/videos while traveling

Reviews around footage (4.23 of 5)

  • Footage is not as good as my others, but its still quite good.
  • Now if you are a total newbie like me, this basically means that the footage will be a little more shaky vs the video footage of a mavic which has a 3 axis gimbal
  • no matter if Controlled by iPhone X or RemoteAttempted to calibrate, STUCK ON IMU CALIBRATION NO MATTER WHAT!Not gonna waste my time with Support, cuz why should I?Shouldn’t have had this many problems from jump, COULDNT FLY

Reviews around product (4.07 of 5)

  • If you aren't worried about this product being undependable and
  • It is so frustrating to think i spent over $600 for an inferior product where half of the features do not work.
  • a so-called "premium" camera drone!I can't recommend DJI products any longer
  • I'm glad dji made such a nice product at an affordable price.

  • Overall, I recommend the Spark for anyone looking for an easy drone to fly with really versatile features

Reviews around thing (3.44 of 5)

  • Another annoying thing about it is you need to update your drone
  • When switched to "sport mode" this thing is stunningly fast.
  • The good thing about nylon landing pads is their resistance to water
  • You apparently can't return the damn thing; there's no place at the DJI website that indicates how to return it
  • This thing looks like a toy so most passersby are amazed

Reviews around command (2.94 of 5)

  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight
  • Brand new, under an hour of flight time, and it flew away into the forest ignoring my commands to land
  • Even if you are cautious with how you fly, it can still ignore your command and go wherever it pleases as if it has a mind of its own
  • I wanted to love this drone as it was so small and nimble compared to the p3 I already own but to start things
  • Allow me to explain the main cons of this Spark and also include pros at the end to be as unbiased as I can.*As a quick preliminary thought - with the 2 main cons I discuss below, the lack of a 3rd Axis on the Gimbal and being locked to 1080p 30fps - it feels as though DJI has intentionally held back this Spark drone so that it is not seen as a direct competitor to the DJI Mavic

Reviews around app (2.57 of 5)

  • Make sure that you read the fine print regarding whether or not DJI's app is compatible with your current phone, else you'll either have to buy a new phone or their ridiculously expensive controller.
  • It’s my first drone and it is so easy to fly, super compact and the app is easy to use and edit videos right off of.
  • the wifi reconnected but then the app once again failed to allow me to fly, prompting me over and over to connect to a wifi signal I was already connected to
  • After upgrading my Android phone the problems with the DJI Go app have gone away
  • The app was easy to follow and walked through the process to get everything setup

Reviews around track (2.54 of 5)

  • Keeping your self fluently to its moments as to not wonder off screen and lose the track
  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight
  • I lost track of the times when I wanted to use my Phantom drone for areal photography, but because of the tight location or a popular point of interest, you simply wouldn't be allowed to do any flying for a variety of reasons
  • I wanted to love this drone as it was so small and nimble compared to the p3 I already own but to start things

Reviews around people (2.44 of 5)

  • Many people will hate this.-Poor Instructions: Tying in with the point above, this isn't very intuitive to use and setup
  • the 1080 P is excellent (I wish it had 60 frames per second however)
  • The quality of the camera is like a really good cell phone camera, which means that depending on the lighting conditions, you can make some amazing footage that will make your Phantom owning friends jealous because you were able to toss it into your day bag and take it just about anywhere without freaking people out with a giant loud buzzard that looks like an alien food processor
  • I've being hesitated for choosing this one or Mavic Pro, because of budget, just like most people who are now viewing this
  • Based on DJI forum, many people have had the same problems, and DJI is apparently refusing warranty service

Reviews around battery life (2.02 of 5)

  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight

  • Cons: the battery life made me decide to get a third battery

  • the 1080 P is excellent (I wish it had 60 frames per second however)
  • Read the DJI Spark forum before you consider a DJI product: poor support, no refund for a defective product unless you can produce the corpse
  • To have an online tech tell me, after 30+ minutes he cannot help me is some of the worst customer support anyone can receive.

Reviews around connection (1.53 of 5)

  • Make sure not to launch it in areas with super weak GPS connection, lesson learnt.

  • Weak connection: If you buy this drone get the controller

Reviews around foot (1.00 of 5)

  • No need to constantly course correct it like cheap drones as I am a complete noob.- Touch of a button and slide to take off 3 feet above ground
  • and it fell about 20 feet onto grass with absolutely zero damage
  • (Which is supposed to allow a distance of about 1 mile) and only got 500 feet away only about 200 feet up before it lost connection and never came back
  • Heck, I crashed it into a tree this past weekend, it fell probably 75 feet and all it needed was some new propellers
  • You pull it out of the bag and fire it up... with in a few seconds you are flying before you attack to much attention its 400 feet in there air and no-

  • its a total nightmare.3) Lack of smooth movements: If you slow the tilt speed down in the app and use tripod mode, you can get pretty slow and smooth tilting and flying shots which are nice
