If you're buying your first Drone, maybe get something cheaper (2 year experience)
I've owned a DJI Spark for 2 years now and here's my experience. Note, the Spark is the only Drone I've owned.
After a couple of months of obsessing over the DJI Spark, eBay has a 20% off coupon and I seize the opportunity to buy one for a steal @ $699.
It arrives. It is as awesome as it looks in its photos and videos, if not better. It feels sturdy with a bit of weight to it, and it looks expensive, wearing its price well; I'm happy with the $699 price tag. I plug it in, charge it up via USB Micro cable and leave it until the next day.
The a...pp (and hardware) is packed with settings. The camera alone provides a lot of functionality you'd expect from a DSLR camera (adjust ISO, digital aperture...etc.). You can also adjust the sensors, flight range, paths, gesture settings...etc. There's also video editing and sharing...the list goes on. It took a week to get my head around everything. After familiarising myself with both the Spark, App settings and watching several DJI tutorials, I take her for a test flight. It's a little quicker than expected and exceptionally responsive to my mobile phone movements, "this is great!" I take numerous test photos, panoramic shots and videos. I push the Wi-Fi range limits. The Drone won't fly beyond 120m in height (it's just a speck in the sky at this point) and 200m in distance (virtually invisible on the horizon). The shots and footage are everything I can ask for. So why only 3 stars?
Purchased in August 2017 at eBay for $699.00.
Great tech but needs extras not included
I upgraded from the Phantom 3, the spark is superior in every way! It’s amazing technology for the price. But you will need to buy landing gear and a battery safety clip to protect your investment. The bag it comes with is less than useful, eBay has better options for cheap
Awesome first drone
This is a perfect small portable drone for a beginner to intermediate operator. Very stable and manoeuvrable even in slightly windy conditions. The supplied DJI remote links to your phone allowing the operator to take high quality photos and videos as there is a good quality camera. Recommend to purchase and learn how to operate prior to upgrading to a more capable unit.
Good camera drone for beginner
I had this drone in the DJI Spark Drone Fly More Combo as my last year Christmas present. From the past 6 months Spark pilot experience, it is extremely easy to control with the remote controller (RC) and takes nice videos and pictures in sunny and open spaces (for it receives 10 or more GPS satellites' signal, i.e. P mode). Initial feeling is excellent as beginner for the price and performance.
Some of the new features of camera drone as shown in DJI ads are not fully functional and reliable. e.g. Object avoidance (it just stops short dista...

Good small intellegent drone - best on market for size and price
After owning a few drones in 2017, i sold my last drone for bought a smaller more expensive DJI Spark. The range of features on Spark is amazing and not used them all yet, check out youtube for instructions. With front sensors i have not crashed it into trees or wall outside and flys well in high winds. I would advise getting the controller, for accurate control and longer signal range than using mobile only.
Good quality, but...
Flying for an hour now. In all the built is very solid and the control are very accurate. Tested with mobile phone control has no problem flying 100m far and 50m height. Image and video quality is excellent. Only thing is that gesture control is not that accurate. Need more practise and move slowly.
