Phantom 4 vs dji Spark

Just a comparison video for the benefit of anyone curious.

on a side note, it is strange that DJI has decided to make you connect to the controller via wifi (and has decided to use a stunted mavic controller), i found that you could connect via cable to the dji application via USB because my wifi connection was horrendous and i had no internet when connected to the wifi. Just thought i would share this anywhere i can so anyone who decided to buy the spark can see this feature, this should also in theory improve the range of the drone because there is less interference.

  • Hey thanks for the comment.

    I would say the other thing i dislike about l the spark sadly is the gimble locks out in sport mode meaning the video rocks

  • Hi Jared, my friend Oliver brought over his Spark the other day and I was very impressed with it to.

    He also has a Mavic Pro, but for ready to go use, the Spark is his new go to copter.

    I was very impressed with it's flight and video stability as well.

    From my recollection he did not seem to be having a problem with color accuracy such as you were showing.

    I will probably be getting a Spark myself as I really like how unobtrusive (and unnoticeable) it is in comparison with my Solos, it also seems a lot less finicky.

    Excellent video, I think the Spark will end up selling very well.

    Best Regards,
