Just curious, couple of posts here are like how to do this, how to do that, no understanding of how each feature works, etc
Do anyone actually reads it? I myself read it like 2 times before buying spark didn't quite understand it. After gotten it and flying it for a few times, it made me understand better.. I still refers to it once a while now...

I think if you expect to just fly it without understanding how it works is already somewhat wrong. This product isnt like those toy grade drones, where you can do that.. there are lots of tech built into it... one can argue that DJI say its easy to use and so forth but i guess thats comparing to mavic, phantom, insipre, etc

It's simple, when everything else fails then grab the manual

Same here, its will be pretty hefty if anything happens, so i read the manuals and practice and a very close range so i get the controls.

i usually never read a manual for anything but for a high tech drone its a must, not only because of the fact that it costs a lot of money but because it flies and could cause severe damage or really hurt someone. for example a couple of months ago there was a guy flying a drone here and almost hit a plane full of pasangers that was on its decent. if it wasn't for the airline pilot's expirence with flying there could have been people killed and he would probably have been charged with manslaughter.

I normally read the manual through for any new device i purchase.
With the Spark I skimmed through the manual, looking for anything i wasn't expecting, and watched the tutorial videos.
I referred back to the Manual's whenever I needed to confirm how a certain function worked.

$500 that can fly away or plummet from the air? I read the manual, and the recently updated manual.

. . . And every new Firmware update causes me to download, print, read and put the hard copy in my Spark case.

So many times I read a question and just think, "Quick being so lazy and RTFM!"

Knowledge is always imperative. Manuals are better then the videos.

I bought the Spark on the first day it was announced, and had to wait for delivery.  I read the manual while waiting.

yeah multipe times

first few times when i ordered the combo late may
second complete read when i got my spark early june and they changed to manual 1.2
v1.4 i did only read the differences. someone posted an awesome link where the changes where marked (draftable.com ?)

still looking something up time to time. there are a lot of useful information and i think everyone should read it at least once.

I read through the basics on the non-combo I got in before my combo shipped. I did not read the full manual. In setting up I did follow the videos posted int the forums by DJI

I read it cover to cover while waiting for it, then skimmed through it after the update.
