So I got my MA on Friday last week & I love it! I now have both the Spark & MA. One thing I've noticed though was the compass calibration issue is present on mine as I am constantly having to calibrate it. I checked the Spark in the same place and its fine and also check the comapss signal before I calibrate it & its always green.

The only other thing I have seen is that it has switched to the backup IMU a couple of times before take off, not sure if this is a problem or not but never had an issue flying it so far.

Here is a little video from my first weekend with it.. Footage from both Spark & MA

Good job glad it’s going well for you. Although the rib seemed to be having a problem getting up on the plane, or it was pulling something very heavy. ;+)....

Congrats on the new addition.  the video is nicely done.

I would do a complete IMU calibration.  That may stop it from switching  before takeoff.  And I still don't have an answer for the compass calibration thing.  I no longer have the issue of having to calibrate every time, however, i have  had to calibrate a few times lately

Congratulations!  now that you own both of them,  is there any reason you would recommend the Spark over the MA to someone? just being curious

Well I have to say if you care about footage quality then it’s the Air every time! I’m keeping my spark as I use them both and she is my baby (first stabilised Drone) so I’m keeping them until they break.

I have to say I am not experiencing any issues with .400 at all.. and I am on the latest iOS 12 beta as well....

Oh and of course.... FCC is an absolute must if youre in Europe..
