I gave it a 4. Mine has always worked flawlessly, but I knocked a point off for battery life. I always feel so rushed when I'm flying it.

No problems at all.  It does what I need it to.  Granted I had to learn a bit about antenna orientation and wifi spectrum crowding.  Further had to learn to avoid fast panning shots like the studios do.

I rated mine a 4...I would like to have had 3 axis gimbal...it's very difficult to get a smooth yaw/pan video clip.

Definitely a 5. My Spark has flown flawlessly and has given me remarkably good photos.

It gets a 3 from me.
I had  hoped that DJI would eventually implement things like 25 fps and waypoints. It seems now like that won't happen, eventhough it should be fairly easy to do so.
Also I had a scary flyaway happen to me a few months ago. Not flown much since due to fear of that happening again.

I give it a 3..  Purely on no 4K (which we knew when we got it).    Lack of Flight time usually 12 mins not 16..   Also the connection issues and Fly aways reduced it to a 3...   Still  pretty solid performer..

I gave it a 4, because of
- no manual ATTI mode selectable
- no firmware update regarding compass errors, ATTI drops and IMU exceptions

Besides that, I like Sparky a lot.

5 for the drone
4 for the software (needs more modes activated - it can handle them)

I gave it a 3....

Yes it's the entry level, and i totally understand no 4k....

For me 2-axis gimbal is just not good enough....and the DJI Go4 app is woeful.

Also, DJI have opted NOT to introduce features the SPARK can handle...especially on Quick Shots.

The fact DJI have limited what it can do is my issue......

I bought this as my first drone, and realized I had found the SPARKS limitations pretty quickly...

I will upgrade to the Air or Mavic soon....but not for their 4k camera or Quick shots...but to do simple movements that the SPARK just cant handle...

For what it does, its the best. It absolutely needs a 3 axis gimbal! its the feature that the aircraft lacks and the one that ruins the majority of my shots and videos. Other than that, this drone instills the knowledge and skills that are required to fly a larger drone as a professional since you will absolutely learn smooth control and good manners or have bad shots!

I gave it a 5 because the Spark is my first drone and has been amazing!  I do understand it's limitations compared to say, the Mavic, but it does exactly what I want.  One day I may upgrade to a fancier drone, but the Spark is pretty awesome.  I've never had any problems with disconnections or scary fly-aways... yet.  But I've also done my research and I understand why one of those events might happen - which I try to stay away from.  5 out of 5 for me!

I rate it as a 3 because of a fly away which DJI courteously replaced. I don’t feel safe flying the Spark due to sporadic disconnection issues and hardware errors, i.e. speed errors, gps errors, magnetic interference etc.

I gave it five stars because it does if not more than what DJI advertises. Obviously we can improve the Spark by adding a 3 axis gimbal, 4K image stabilization, and OcuSync 2.0. Maybe DJI could release low noise propellers, tinker with the battery slightly to extend a little more flight time, add more obstacle avoidance sensors? These additions would not only, in my opinion, make the Spark much better but would catapult it to being the best drone made by DJI?

As mentioned by others, mine has performed flawlessly. The pictures and video are just amazing considering the cam is mounted on a quad. The gimble is remarkably stable IMHO. We us it at our family functions to film the entire family together. Love it.

I agree David, however, such additions would drive the cost up to a point where it probably wouldn't be affordable as an entry level machine. Just my two cents. Have a great one man.

Yes. The best part about the Spark is the price. Keeping it at that $399 price point with Remote Controller should be the focus of DJI for releasing subsequent additions to the Spark.

I paid $727 all-in for my Spark ($569 + $50 tax) for my Spark, plus also got the extra battery ($49) with DJI Care Refresh ($59). Hopefully the next update will be more affordable.

was a 5 when delivered with the old 2017 era firmware... now its a 1 and would rate it a ZERO if it were an option....
and DJI customer service is a joke...

after updating to the latest firmware .. 2 weeks after purchase in Sept '18 ... its constant yaw issues and occasional atti excursions make it completely unreliable... until DJI fixes this firmware issue that is in the mavic pro/air/2 line as well.. I have all but grounded my fleet of 3 DJI products and using other hardware for the moment..

5 for the price point and for the size and for what it does overall it deserve the 5, Indeed i wish  3 Axis Gimbal 4K but if you wish to like me then we can go spend extra cash and get an advanced one ;)

II gave it a 4, because:

2. The battery falling out problem.
