I want both. But I'm waiting for mavic 2. Spark works great and will meet all my needs until then.

I mean if the wind exceeds its max speed then yeah, you're going to have issues. I've been out immoderate wind and had no problems.

I returned my Mavic and then I got Spark. I like Spark overall but I do miss Mavic for longer distance and better video.

A week into buying the spark whilst I'm glad I did I half regret not buying the mavic. It's clear the Mavic is quite a lot more capable (3rd axis of gimbal, longer flight times, RAW photos and 4K being the biggest differences for me). However, I just know the difference in size would have been critical - actually going biking/walking/climbing/sailing will still be my priority rather than 'droning' whilst doing those things and there simply is not a mavic sized hole in my kit bag(s) whilst I'm prepared to make a spark sized hole.

The Spark and Mavic are in different classes even though they are being compared. The transmission systems alone between the 2 are night and day. I have both and I can tell you the Spark is fun to "play" with despite the issues everyone is experiencing which I'm sure will be resolved with future updates. The Mavic at the end of the day is a more polished drone with more tech. In the past couple of years there have been alot of kickstarters for the palm sized selfie drones being introduced and I this was DJI's "I don't think so" into that market. Again despite the current distance and/or RC issues its experiencing, the Spark still has more tech than any equally-sized drone on the market.

I was in the position to buy either but settled on the Spark mainly because I'll be using it mainly for filming whilst on holiday abroad. The list of countries banning drones is getting large now, so I went for the cheaper option in case it gets confiscated at customs {:4_105:}

i haven't has any wind issues with my spark...


that being said, i do plan on getting the mavic pro.  just more of a matter of when and how.. if these spark issues go unchecked much longer (couple weeks) i may return it for a mavic pro.  otherwise ill slowly save up like i did with spark..

Own the Spark but went ahead and purchased the Mavic Pro which I just heard was delivered. Hopefully I'll be doubly impressed ?

I have the Spark then might consider the Mavic just for the 4K quality.

The Spark is my first drone, I like flying it a lot. I'm probably going to buy a Mavic at some point and keep both.
