    Default DJI Spark



    I've never bought a good drone because it's just too much $$$ for a toy, but this looks decent for under $600:

    You only live once, get it! Looks like a cool little drone except it appears to shoot in 30fps instead of 60fps which is a lot smoother video. Still, the hurtle is the price tag....

    I'm really hoping they revap the next larger size... the Mavic I want to say.... actually... I hope they don't. Editing video is so time consuming.

    When I saw the spark, I instantly though about trail run videos. DO it Paul.. You know you wanna!

    You had better relook at that Amazon price. The $599 is just for the drone and a couple of memory cards. You don't get the controller or a battery pack, or travel case. So it sure is not the whole bundle that is being shown in the video for $699.

    The drone on the DJI web page is $499 for just the drone and $699 for the combo package. Combo pack on Amazon is $699 as well.

    nickles and dimes... looks like I'll wait some more, but it's pretty cool that the prices are coming down. I currently have a Hubsan X4 that cost about $60.00 and its a lot of fun to fly, even gets some decent video.

    I'm going to pull the trigger on one of these, I think. I like the Mavic, but this guy makes good points. I just saw a DJI factory refurbished Phantom 3 standard with 1 year warranty on amazon for 329.00 complete....

    I have the Spark Fly More Combo. It's worth it if you don't buy it for retail prices. Super easy to fly, has gps so wont fly away. Also, you can get "drone insurance" from farmers for like $40 a year so if you loose it or destroy it, it will be covered. Check out the for sale section on this site. Lots of people always selling for a nice discount if you don't mind slightly used.
