This is my first real outing with the Spark. Was a bit hesitant sending this little thing out over a cliff and over water using just the phone (RC coming soon still). But it handled it all well!

This is my first ever video edit too. Came out alright for a first try...

I know! Must have done something wrong when adding in the audio. Rookie mistake...

Yeah love the start and how it suits the footage. Although I race drones so this is soooo tame in comparison but as soon as the RC arrives the footage should get exponentially better! Just re-edited the video and dialled back the levels. Will change link.

Thanks guys. Any input into how to make these better is welcome! Never had a drone like this before that takes great video. Just racing drones which is entirely different.

As soon as I get the remote they should get a tad more exciting! {:4_181:}

My kid thought the same thing.  But then he watched his video of the Spark drone flying in Sport Mode and he got serious motion sickness.  lol.  It is definitely a fun drone to fly in Sport mode though.

Having a RC for the Spark really opens it up to another dimension.  I was able to get a "Fly Less" (no RC) Spark a bit earlier than other did and flying without a RC suck.  I've since received my Fly More (with RC) and I've been gradually flying it more than my other DJI platforms.

So more than the Mavic? Is it the size that seems to be the edge to use it more? I cant really trust it without the feeling of the sticks and the limited range. Also want the higher speed.

Nah...In my case it's just the novelty of having something new/different.  The Mavic is still my "go to" quikie platform.
