Help me decide please
« on: July 10, 2017, 10:51:26 »
I have a DJI phantom 3 pro at the moment and only time I use it when we go on holiday. Problem is I have a dji case which take up a lot of space..

I am thinking about selling it to get the DJI spark with the controller. Reason is due to size and portability.


Am i doing the right thing?

Thoughts please.

I would go for the Mavic, it fits i a very small case and it has a controller  with sticks like flying things are supposed to have.  ~~

If a 5 year old can fly it would it present you enough of a challenge to be interesting?

I looked at the spark due to its size not my flying capabilities lol.

A Mavic would be interesting.

Or you could get a Q450 hex frame, Bolt non folding high landing gear and gimbal to the bottom, GPS and VTX aerials out the top........ and THEN realise that you can't get a cheap case big enough to transport it, it won't fit in the boot of your car as is, and the most convenient way to get it to a location more than half a mile away would be to set it up for "Follow me mode" and have it tail you while you drive there slowly in the car (Remembering to stop every 10 to 15 minutes to swap the battery pack).

"I have a dji case which take up a lot of space"......... Some folks don't know they're bloody born ! LOL !!!!!

You know the rules of internet forums. You can't drop something like that into a thread without also providing photographic proof !  :whistling:

That spark really does look nice and easy to use.... Very portable.... Mavic is more capable but at a cost..... I'd also like to see a picture of someone in a phantom case,,, are they really that big  :laugh:

I'm getting worried now. No witty response (Or photo) from Agrs since 11 this morning......... You don't think he's gone and got himself locked in the box do you?  :frantic:

LOL !
