Finally got to fly my Spark - or little Sparky as I call it.
The snow had just come here, sun was shining and no wind, so I went to a lake nearby to fly for the first time.

Some drama and I give my first impressions on this super fun drone! Spoiler: I like it alot!

Thanks alot, appreciate it!
I did not get any warning nor did I preheat the batteries. Didnt walk far either so it didnt get the chance to be to cold I guess.

Love the scenes over the water into the sun. The trees in the back provide a great silhouette.

Also - is it me or should every drone have a nickname? I got nothing but eyerolls from my GF when I suggested Snoop-Dronie-Drone.. still looking /-:

Great work.
It looks like you found a way to use the Osmo Mobile?

Nice to watch and see how you like it.

Curious if you will take the P4P or Spark more (or both)  and how you will like them after some time.
