Howdy Everyone!

Just submitted my purchase and thought others might want to share their own excitement about joining the family!

I got the Meadow Green Fly More Combo, and decided to purchase the DJI Care as well. What did you get?

p.s. I'm a secretely rather happy they included the hand guards for free, I tend to pass out around blood. Hahaha.

Cheers!

And into the breach I go with a new Sky Blue Spark.

This should be interesting.

Osmo+ from Heliguy (UK based retailer) as I already have a Spark and Mavic. Tempted by a Phantom 4 Pro as I've been looking into it for a while but the deals aren't quite good enough.

I would just like a quad that actually works after an update, but so far the Spark has been a right pain in the backside!!

The advanced is rather decently priced with 1 extra batt.
Especially with the extra 5%

I got myself a original MP  from a local webshop. (Dutch).
It was even cheaper than the Apline White one in the DJI store.
I added the Polar Pro DJI Mavic Cinema Series 6-pack that was also on sale
It should arrive in a couple of days.

And I bought some accessoires, but they come all the way from China, so will take some more time.
- PGYTECH Lens Hood Sun Shade (with nice large hood)
- DJI Mavic Pro EVA Portable Hardshell Transmitter Controller Storage Box + Drone Body Housing Bag (to store the stuff in my backpack.
- PGYTECH Remote Control Thumb Stick Guard Rocker Protector

You can say that! Just how I like it!
My gadget budget went from 100% to -10% so I will have to work with my iPhone SE for some time.
I am however in the process of replacing my trusted Samsung Note 10.1 (I use that every day to replace pencil and paper) and have selected the Samsung Tab S3 to be it's replacement. (Wifi version, but with GPS).
It is about 40% cheaper than the iPad Pro and it has GPS (for follow me, dynamic homepoint and who knows what DJI will add that requires GPS in your device).
So when I find a good sale on that one, I will give the Android version a go. (no pun intended)
Right now I think I will prefer to either use my daily phone or my daily tablet for the MP (since I carry both with me most of the time) and not buy a CS (yet).
There are other things that probably need upgrading first on my list.
That is how I feel right now, but maybe that will change in the future. Who knows.

I know. I can't wait to test it out.
Carefully though.
When it has 'any' relevance to Spark users I will post here!

But I think Spark users are allowed in the other fora as well
At least, I follow all of them

Got mine the week before Black Friday started.  Best Buy lunched their sale early so I jumped on the $399 Deal.  Ended up ordering all of the other stuff (RC, cables) through ebay.

I got a used Fly More Combo last week.  Reskinned it in Sicilian Midnight (Aka Black).  It seems strange that they didn’t make one in black or gray.

I agree, I was hoping they would give some good deals on either Advance or Pro's.

Mmmmmm Spark looks mighty fine all murdered out like that. I'd assume the average consumer likes color, especially marketed as a selfie drone. I picked neon green so that the little sucker would pop and be easier to find after the inevitable crash.

Have spent 15 hours so far, still unable to connect and fly this thing. let me rephrase, was able to use my mobile (note 8) ahd hover this thing twice. Now it is not even connecting.

Thank you very much dear friend! But I have no idea if it will ever come true. Just for my private fun definitely not. If at all, I would need to start a small business with it and make it earn the investment. And for doing that, I would first need to retire from my present job that I still need to do for another couple of years. But who knows, sometimes dreams come true...

Yep been wanting a drone for a long time. A Black Friday deal came up for the white spark fly more so I grabbed it. Never flown before a few years ago I purchased a $50 helicopter and it just kept spinning out of control and crashed so I gave up. Hopefully I can learn to fly this drone. Can’t wait to get it.

I always wanted a drone too. After a long research I finally bought a Spark fly more combo from amazon for $650 (inc. tax and shipping) and got it 2 weeks ago. I love it . I use the otg cable and the IPhone 6s.
Only have one time disconnection and went rth. Most important let the craft hover for about 1 minute and let it mark the rth base. At least that is what I found to be working. Did a lot of practicing and still am.
On Black Friday I curiously checked amazon and saw they sell the fly more combo for $550. I called customer service and they refund me $100. Purchases at amazon bought after November can be return till January 31st.
Anyway, I choose white cause white will keep the craft relatively cool. Not sure if that is gonna make a big difference if flying in a colder weather.
So far I love the Spark. Has been doing what I wanted to do, except for that one time disconnection.

What is the model of your device? Did you try to reset the wifi to connect your spark? Please watch the video below.
