Giving up powered flight...but not totally.
« on: December 04, 2018, 22:35:34 PM »
I decided earlier this year that I was going to devote the little time I can give to this hobby to just gliding, but I have been smitten by a lovely little DJI Spark.
Having spent countless minutes looking through various attention grabbing babble of get this one! It really is the dogs nuts   , it came down to which was the best that I could afford!
Well, this diminutive fly is really not bad at all, certainly better than the Syma I had, build quality feels good,looks good, and has a very stable hover! Next is to fly over my bosses house and annoy him, ( hes my mate too ).
He likes to follow what ever I get into.

There are many roads to success,.....mine is currently being resurfaced!

Well, you really should expect the Spark to be a world apart and far far removed from the Syma, since it is on average more expensive by a factor of ten!

Don't own either, but fly with people that have various Syma's, most of which look like mini Phantoms with stunted growth legs, and for their money they seems very good and by observation extremely strong.

I recovered one of theirs that had been stuck on a roof for a week (in rain) after pilot brain fade, then in wind fell to wedge itself behind some industrial wheelie bins. Dried it out, checked it out on my Horus with multi-module to find it flew perfectly well, and the following week it was back with its owner, surviving more impacts with the scenery from his "flying style".   :''

So, to the Spark, done much more with it?

the syma x5 is a tough little machine
for the cost they fly really well and even the nephews struggle to completely destroy them
