occusync and longer batterie

this would be my choice. I worry about loss of signal all the time and I'm sure the technology is out there for the longer battery time.

Definitely. I will post some examples of 25fps vs 30fps footage soon. It really looks horrible when there is artificial light involved.
Even at 1/30th shutterspeed.

looking forward to see that

Spark (1) is suffering of DJI restrictions all over the world where (CE regulations) except US (FCC regulations).

In this case, if Spark (2) will be released with same restricted issues, then the only thing to be developed is more flying time.

Hence why so many would forgo being able to use the spark with just their phone and revert to an occusync remote like the mavic. Viola - no more issues with complying with CE broadcast power regs. Anyone even moderately serious uses a remote rather than just their phone so the wifi technology route was an error imo. And one that would be very easy to recover from in the spark 2. They could have a Spark classic in the line up that kept with the wifi/phone route for the true 'selfie drone' users if a group truly exists.

I don’t think DJI would include all these features in a Spark 2.  If they make it a mini Mavic, then it will take sales away from the Mavic line, or increase the price of the Spark 2.   As much as I would love to see this, realistically, I’d just be happy with longer battery life.

I have been very pleased with my Spark so far. I would love to see more battery life, who would not. The other main improvement I can see would be the radio link. Even with the RC and all RF emiting sources removed from my control area, I still only see 150 to 200 meters of solid link before I start getting some cutouts. While I don’t routinely fly further my nephew flies a P3Advanced and the radio link on that thing is a beast. I have been flying for close to 50 years and this new technology is absolutely incredible. I am loving it.

I here theres a hack and the spark can actually go 45mph!

Yes, I have seen some YouTube video's about that but you'll void your warranty if you do it.

Legs. And a load of software updates. Enable raw shots, missions (ok they need RC contact), higher bitrate, 60fps.

Hahaha...I would feel a little cheated if they release a spark 2 in the coming months with all the features they are posting here...

Imagine how the Phantom 1 users felt when DJI released the Phantom 2?  What nerve!

Yeah you are absolutely right, it's the same as buying a Samsung Galaxy phone, you know that less than 1 year later there is going to be a new release, very disappointing...I think there should be a bigger time gap between releasses, otherwise you never know when to buy a product cause you always will be thinking about the next version...

Ocusync. Folding arms to further reduce the pack size. 3rd gimbal prob never going to happen as too small and it’s battery hungry. Different frame rates, raw and choice of color profiles. 4K I guess too.

So basically the Spark 2 should be called the Spavic?

The longest battery life is unanimous. I regret not buying the Mavic Pro.

My 2 pence worth,

- Camera that you can set the aperture (bye to filters)
- 20 min flight time would be spot on
- Higher frame rate for slow motion
- 4K would be nice but most people I know dont have anything to enjoy the full 4K experience.

I have a mavic pro and I fly my spark much more as its small and no unfolding parts. Easy to start up and palm launch to get going. Also much smaller so get much less looks from people.

RAW files not jpeg please. But perhaps make it into a race type drone at the flick of the switch, i.e. one up from sport.

I don't think that DJI will have occusnyc 4k etc. because selfie drones don't need that kind of thing.

Night Vision
Stealth Mode (à la Airwolf)

Realistically I'd like to see the following on the next generation:
  • All round sensors, or at the very least obstacle avoidance sensors on the sides.
  • An alarm, which can be activated via the remote (in flight, at rest, or either?) which can be triggered to help locate the Spark if it lands out of sight in hedgerows, undergrowth etc.

Items which should come as standard  (IMHO).
  • An easy to read guide on how to set up the Spark and associated items.  This time using a font size that that can be read without resorting to a magnifying glass.
  • Gimbal cover.
