Reviews around size (4.33 of 5)

  • Pros:Small size and small footprint and easy to carry in a bagReady to get flying immediately without
  • The size of this thing makes it so portable and easy to carry around
  • After flying the Mavic, I knew this mid-sized wouldn't pack the same punch, but it's small, cute and looks GREAT on YouTube videos (flown by professionals).
  • I love the size easy to carry around anywhere I go, camera quality is great but could still be better.
  • The handling, like other DJI UAVs, is great and very responsive and it's small size makes it ideal for practice in backyards

Reviews around video (4.22 of 5)

  • The spark is a joy to fly and takes great video and pictures
  • Takes great photos and videos for any non-professional application
  • Though I keep seeing weak video connection in the app with the cable, it has been very stable with the cable
  • Terrific Drone to get started, very easy to fly and takes amazing video, more than enough for most people starting in the drone hobby
  • This makes seeing what the Spark is seeing difficult and can make video recording and photos difficult

Reviews around spark (3.84 of 5)

  • So the end came with a “craft has reached max altitude” warning, and the spark flying into a tree, and crashing onto pavement
  • This makes seeing what the Spark is seeing difficult and can make video recording and photos difficult
  • The Spark has a major flaw, the battery can come lose, detach and the drone comes crashing down
  • This review after 10 months, and a crash leaving my spark with a motor snapped from frame and dangling by wires
  • I absolutely love the DJI Spark, if simplicity with great quality is what you need from a drone

Reviews around footage (3.78 of 5)

  • Really Epic drone, its 1080p camera is really good and you can easily upscale the footage to 4k in post edit
  • I wanted to use the cx10s to try and do this 3d work yet the footage was very lacking
  • 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
  • Got some decent snowy covered footage of our little town.
  • 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
  • Read remaining 14 reviews for footage

Reviews around thing (3.47 of 5)

  • Again not the worst thing in the world, but the drone seems to apply some sort of noise reduction to the image or something
  • Have had it for about 6 months now and can honestly say I love this little thing
  • When switched to "sport mode" this thing is stunningly fast.
  • If you're on the edge and have 500-600 dollars, pick up the Fly More combo and pick the color you want the most This thing is ridiculous
  • If you don't need a 4k drone, this thing is the best you can buy for the money, it is such a pleasure to fly and an amazing piece of equipment to own

  • 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
  • The only true disappointment out of the box was the firmware updates required before flight, this of course took a whole battery to accomplish, which really is no big
  • 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
  • I got the SKYREAT 6 in 1 Rapid Battery Charger (nice fast charges)
  • And if you mess with the wi-fi setup for 1-5 minutes its draining your battery as well

Reviews around command (1.95 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

Reviews around controller (1.80 of 5)

  • Second, using the drone solely from your phone only (with no controller) is a joke
  • Great drone, have problems connecting the controller to my phone
  • The first thing that struck me when unboxing it was the weight and solid feel of the aircraft itself, as well as the controller
  • it did cancel, but the right stick controller didn't work at all (the side that moves L-R and Fwd-Bwd).
  • but now the controller is loose and falling apart after a couple of months of light use.

Reviews around crash (1.74 of 5)

  • :Wifi signal is terrible, it will drop and/or get so bad the picture freezes oftenApp randomly crashes, good thing altitude hold works because your stuck scrambling to restart the appWhen the app does work you are bombarded with pop up warnings constantly, very annoyingYou are forced to look at ads for other DJI products almost every time you launch the appMany times even though your connected to the wifi of the remote or even the quad itself, the app doesn't think you are
  • While flying it the day before her wedding to prep the camera settings, the drone randomly lost GPS connection and crashed into the house we were staying in
  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight
  • Easy to Fly∙ Easy to Learn∙ Durable (Mine crashed twice, once into some branches because a friend underestimated Sport mode and once into a door
  • Almost smashed into my face, then crashed going over 20 mph
  • Read remaining 7 reviews for crash

Reviews around signal (1.69 of 5)

  • Get yourself a signal booster for the controller too so you can keep a good signal
  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight
  • On my photoshoots the drone loses signal over and over again which results in the drone starting to fly back to me which ruins the shot I was trying to get
  • Even with the controller you are going to have a weak signal
  • My guess is that the metal in the construction of the bridge caused the signal to get messed up, which ultimately caused the drone to meet its untimely demise

Reviews around service (1.61 of 5)

  • Amazon needs to discontinue with DJI.Amazon built it's empire with excellent customer service mostly located in U.S.
  • It tries to mimic the role model of proper customer service in U.S. but fails to do so in multiple levels
  • Based on DJI forum, many people have had the same problems, and DJI is apparently refusing warranty service
  • I had heard that DJI had poor customer service, and they do
  • Poor customer service backed up by product that fails miserably.

  • Literally after 5 minutes of ownership/flight I lost connection and it just flew off

Reviews around support (1.00 of 5)

  • DJI makes a fairly solid product, however, their support and customer service are the worst
  • I cannot support DJI as their support is either incompetent, overwhelmed or just outright bank robbers.
  • 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.
  • I’ve spent 2.5 hrs trying to set this thing up.... after failing I contacted support where I spent another 75 minutes trying to set it up an still failed

Reviews around foot (1.00 of 5)

  • Heck, I crashed it into a tree this past weekend, it fell probably 75 feet and all it needed was some new propellers
  • 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
  • (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
  • 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
