The Mavic remote can not be used for the Spark.

One drone, one remote = more $. It's a bit of a shame but it's market law

And what's about vice versa? Can Spark's RC be used with Mavic? As secondary, for example.

They each use a different transmission system. No cross compatibility here.

Would have been great DJI if you could bind the Mavic remote, in fact thinking about it makes me feel you are being greedy........ Money Money Money the mighty dollar

Is this difference why the range is no better than my P3 Standard, at 500 meters @ CE?

Is it really only 500 meters or is that a misprint?

They look so similar. It's got to be the same remote underneath, just with the LCD removed.

Could be wrong but that's my hunch!

Evidently, as Joe said - they're not compatible anyway so we'll have to live with it.

If the transmission system is different then what can you do!

And yet - the DJI Goggles are able to be a remote controller for both Mavic Pro and Spark...?


[edit: looks like you may need the remote + the goggles to connect?]

The Spark's RC just boosts the WiFi signal, it's not a standard RF frequency system like the other aircrafts that DJI makes. Sorry you feel that way.

What range? In the specs it shows 2km?

Not if you're in any of the countries that operate under European output, which also includes all the commonwealth countries such as Australia, Canada, Malaysia etc.

That's a pity - I would have been more tempted to buy one if it did.

I agree, I would of considered buying the Spark if I could use my Mavic controller with it. Keep it as a spare or a quick flight and the Mavic for the good stuff. You guys make really great drones but who ever made that decision should be fired. Makes no sense at all. Just a shame...

Well the Mavic controller will not work with the Phantoms or Inspires either . Why do people keep bringing this up ? They are different drones and tech changes or is totally different for a reason . If the Spark had Ocusync it would be far bigger and they are trying to sell it to a totally different market .
