    DJI. Spark. Best deal, where?

    Where is the best deal going for the DJI Spark fly more pack, which includes 2 batteries, and the longer range controller

    This is purely going to be used for family holidays, thanks to being light weight, compact, dead easy to use and good enough 1080p video quality.

    From my very cursory look online, Taobao has the lowest prices, about $1000hkd cheaper than what is listed on price.com.hk

    Any competitive dji stockests in Hong Kong ?

    Saw it for 5,544 HKD on banggood (one battery).
    And 7,000 HKD (fly more) on Aliexpress.
    What's taobao?

    So...you'd buy it from Taobao, with a Chinese non-local warranty for the price difference? What if Hong Kong stores tell you to go to SZ if you want it repaired or you have any issues that need using the warranty?

    I got a Taobao battery, since I know it's the official store and the price difference makes it worth. But for something for which you need warranties...no thanks.

    There's a Mavic Pro (also light and compact) in the Classifieds going for $6500 in case you missed it:

    Thanks geotommy & tigersun....

    I'm pulling the trigger next week, and buying from these guys
    Home of Your One Stop Aerial Photography / UAS Store - FlyCamHK.com

    Thanks for letting me know about the Mavic Pro, but to be quite honest The Spark is the perfect holiday drone for the application that I'm going to use it for. The compact non invasive size, is a huge advantage for a family selfie drone and in many ways similar to my abandonment of bulky dslr's and why I got into Fuji X100's and Sony's awesome RX1R.

    I won't rule out the possibility that when they bring a spark sized drone out with mavic pro 4k video performance , that I won't upgrade hehe.

    I was considering a Mavic but find it rather bulky. Has anyone picked up a Spark yet? Do you like it? Any input would be great .

    In my opinion Mavic IS bulky...when open. However when folded, it takes less room (horizontally) than the spark, which cannot be folded at all. It is bigger and heavier though, it's just the spark isn't foldable that bothers me.

    These guys totally get what the Spark is excellent for. Plus not everybody wants to mess around editing 4k footage either...



    I am getting one next week pending no schedule changes...

    Lol...I wonder what it feels being a resident of Venice Beach. Everyday some random dudes flying their drones while talking to a camera... I've seen at least 6 different videobloggers doing spark comparisons on the same damn place.
