Reviews around price (5.00 of 5)

  • 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
  • great entry drone and the price and shipping was great.
  • Lots of features and a good price for the entry level drone hobbyist.
  • Amazing drone and came in great condition would definitely purchase form these guys again, great price!
  • Again, if it was say $500 with the fly more combo, I think that would be a fair price

  • For now this is great fun and easy to store compared to a Phantom
  • Pretty fun to use, battery time is limited and I already had call DJI for 1 battery that's gone bad

Reviews around camera (4.52 of 5)

  • The best camera is the one you have, and the spark can always be within reach.
  • 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
  • The Spark has a great camera, and the remote is very responsive.
  • 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!
  • Its really about use cases; I wanted something small (tiny) with a great camera that I can take photos/videos while traveling

Reviews around feature (4.28 of 5)

  • Dont get me wrong, I like the features of the spark but like some other people after flying it for few times I noticed that its not the drone for me
  • The video quality is 1080 and there is no slow mo feature
  • 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
  • Rumor is that future updates might disable this feature

Reviews around footage (4.23 of 5)

  • 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
  • For example, 'Rocket' goes straight up but at a snails pace (although you can speed in up in video editing software and it still looks good due to how smooth the footage is)
  • 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
  • I like:Very stable video: if it looks a little jerky on your phone, it's only because it's using the streamed video, grab the video off the card for the good quality footage, considering the size the gimbal is amazingSuper stable and easy to fly: if you haven't flown before, don't be intimidated

Reviews around product (4.07 of 5)

  • If you aren't worried about this product being undependable and
  • a so-called "premium" camera drone!I can't recommend DJI products any longer
  • It is so frustrating to think i spent over $600 for an inferior product where half of the features do not work.
  • DJI makes a fairly solid product, however, their support and customer service are the worst
  • Product came damaged and had been used so it was not brand new.

Reviews around spark (4.01 of 5)

  • Overall, I recommend the Spark for anyone looking for an easy drone to fly with really versatile features
  • So with my personal experience I can not recommend the Spark
  • It is almost impossible to really crash your Spark in beginner mode.
  • Only get the base model if you destroy/lose your first Spark.
  • I have stopped counting how many times I have crashed my Spark.

Reviews around thing (3.44 of 5)

  • Sport mode is pretty awesome, this thing flies INSANELY FAST for its size.
  • Another annoying thing about it is you need to update your drone
  • 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
  • Let me tell you the truth, this thing flies like a dream and is outrageously simple to fly

Reviews around command (2.94 of 5)

  • Brand new, under an hour of flight time, and it flew away into the forest ignoring my commands to land
  • 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
  • I wanted to love this drone as it was so small and nimble compared to the p3 I already own but to start things
  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight
  • 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 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.
  • After upgrading my Android phone the problems with the DJI Go app have gone away
  • Too slow with a mobile app, harder to control and can't fly too far.
  • It does not appear to crash but rather the app just closes
  • 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.

  • Pros:- Not intimidating as it is small and has stable hover during flight
  • you are a professional and are looking for a high end device which will be a money-making tool, this flying camera is not for you, or if you have a super flashy 4K larger than life TV, you might want something more advanced like the DJI Mavic, but for everyone else, this drone is like a dream come true

Reviews around people (2.44 of 5)

  • I've being hesitated for choosing this one or Mavic Pro, because of budget, just like most people who are now viewing this
  • DJI has the drone market under control, from their quality, to the UI of the DJI Go4 App...which I have read a few people having issues with phone compatibility (sorry if you are one of those folk)
  • the 1080 P is excellent (I wish it had 60 frames per second however)
  • With those cool unique gestures and flight modes such as Dronie, Rocket, and Fly Away, many people have already crashed and destroyed their drones within their first few flights
  • Many people will hate this.-Poor Instructions: Tying in with the point above, this isn't very intuitive to use and setup

  • Iv been able to fly 1 mile out before i lost signal (probably could have gone
  • Even with the controller you are going to have a weak signal
  • Get yourself a signal booster for the controller too so you can keep a good signal
  • This thing rips but it disconnects and the signal gets weak fairly

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

Reviews around battery life (2.02 of 5)

  • Battery life is the only minor knock (11-13 mins per charge) but it is fun to use.
  • Battery life is horrible and hand gesture control works intermittently.
  • Only issue is the battery life (only 15 minutes per battery
  • Battery life is poor, but you get two and additional batteries are affordable.

Reviews around service (1.87 of 5)

  • Based on DJI forum, many people have had the same problems, and DJI is apparently refusing warranty service
  • It tries to mimic the role model of proper customer service in U.S. but fails to do so in multiple levels
  • I had heard that DJI had poor customer service, and they do
  • Very poorly written instructions, poor DJI customer service, and even if you buy an OTG cable to fix the weak/nonexistant connection between your phone and the remote controller, the Spark still has trouble recognizing it
  • Poor customer service backed up by product that fails miserably.

Reviews around support (1.76 of 5)

  • Works good on IOS but they have terrible android support
  • 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
  • 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

  • After having this thing for two months+, it suddenly flew away and lost connection
  • Other problems included significant connection errors / random disconnections while flying (one time it disconnected and just hovered until it ran out of

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
  • (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
  • 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-
  • and it fell about 20 feet onto grass with absolutely zero damage
  • 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

Reviews around user error (1.00 of 5)

  • It is user error as they used these modes in tight locations they should not have (Crashing into tress, walls, etc)
  • They even covered one of my drones crashing due to user error (my one and only!
  • I reached out to DJI for support (3 times) and warranty citing the device malfunction and on 4 instances, they gave me different reasons as to why this occurred citing user error
  • They refused to repair it, as a warranty item stating, user error which it was not
  • After a couple of user error issues, it is flying wonderfully
