Noisy
Integrated Camera
Loose battery

💡 In a few words.

Overall the Spark is an excellent travel companion and a perfect mate for taking these lifetime memories. But some features are frankly quite outstanding considering its size and price with many that would only be seen on more expensive/bigger models within competition such as:

Obstacle avoidance: the drone comes with a frontal sensor that sense obstacles up to 5 m ahead and land safely if needed.

Return to home: if you loose control or signal, the drone can automatically come back to its starting point by flying up to 30 m and using its obstacle avoidance system.

Gesture recognition: you can take amazing aerial photos using just hand gestures, without a remote controller or mobile device. With FaceAware, Spark lifts off from your hand by recognising your face.

Mechanical Gimbal Stabilization: your imagery will be stable and neat, no more blurred content and hello to wow effect homemade aerial videos.

🚨 It is not all perfect tho.. as some aspects (usually untold) might pull you off such as:

Noise: for its size, you would expect something quieter. Unfortunately the small propellers sounds like a big fly scaring off wildlife and making it little wind resistant.

Integrated camera: whilst the camera is great today, it is fixed to the drone meaning if you want a better lens, you will need to change of drone.

Battery's emplacement: some members have reported the Spark batteries falling off during the flight. Good news is that there is an easy fix for that
