Hi everyone,
I am looking for a new drone, and am wondering which is better. The Mavic air or the Spark. I know the spark is cheaper, but it the mavic air worth it? Also, if you know of any coupons or deals for either drone please let me know. Thanks!

It depends on what do you want. If you looking for flight distance, time, video and photo quality go for MA. If want small and light, quick and easy to charge, easy to take off anywhere than go for Spark.

JUST went through this. Wanted a good quality drone. Started with the Spark with extra battery and controller for 399.  I flew it for a couple weeks and started looking at the Mavic Air (realized this is something I really could get into). I wanted more camera options, more effects, more speed in OA mode, longer battery life and more speed for fun time in Sport Mode. So I returned it and got the MA Fly More for 899. Yes it's more...a lot more, but hey...you only live once. I haven't looked back. Pretty much everything you can do with the Spark you can do with the MA and more. The only thing I can think of is palm take off. I land in my palm all the time.  The Spark is a selfie drone.  It's a nice drone and for many just want they need, but if you are AT ALL on the fence get yourself the MA.
That's just my take on it.

I've had the spark and currently have the MA

Photo quality of the spark is comparably to the MA, you don't have RAW support but if you shoot bracketed you can get comparable results in post; the MA gives you more headroom editing.

Video quality is worlds apart, the 1080p the spark shoots is comparable to the old gopro devices, it's ok but when you look at it next to the MA it pales in comparison.

Spark is a great introduction to the world of drones and a great travel drone.

The MA is a better travel drone as folded it's almost the same size

If you can afford it get the MA

I bought the Air, particularly for its small folded footprint, easy to pack for travel and the video quality is outstanding.
If taking you camera gear everywhere is your thing, then it has to be the Air.

MA by far hands down. If you don't mind spending a little extra get the combo 100% worth it.

I own both and have not flown my Spark once since purchasing the Mavic Air. They are worlds apart and I highly recommend the Mavic Air if you can afford it.

Between Spark and Mavic Air, of course MA is the winner. If you don't have budget limit go for MA, otherwise, get the Spark with Fly More Combo.
