I see it only has a two axis gimbal. Would like to see some real world video example of it flying in various wind conditions.

The combo package comes with a controller. Can we have an answer to this please.

It does pretty well for such as small craft. I have flown in some stiff winds.

It has a separate controller. Look at the banner and you can get an idea of what it looks like.

Well, It is a solid addition to the fleet, very impressive.

The leaked internal photos gave us great insights,

1- The front facing 3D camera for OA and gesture control.

2- The new bottom flow system with IR instead of ultrasonic ranging.

3- The WiFi patch antennas giving us Occusync, albeit 1.24 mile range, still stunning.

We missed on the 4k, and 250g weight goal, but hey, registration is over in the US for now.

16min flight time is stellar!

Certainly a fun new toy, and it was a snap to order!

Will it support 3rd party apps? Waypoints, Orbit, things like that?

Can't help but summarize that DJI missed the mark on this one. With a 1080p/30fps camera and no controller the price point should have been $299 with a flymore combo incl. controller and batteries for $499. With all the hype I was expecting a 4k camera/1080p video link/2-axis for $499.

Also seems really odd to pitch the product as a 'selfie' type device and miss the 250g weight threshold. The way it's looking I wouldn't be surprised to see the FAA limit ALL flights over structures and people <500ft for UAVs >250g. This was DJI opportunity to corner that market.

Sure you can say the Yuunec, etc. don't even have what the Spark is, but hey, it's all about customer perception and expectations and I for one had $500+ ready to commit today and it's staying in my pocket. I'm confident I'm not the only one.

Guess I'll wait the 6-12mo for the Mavic Pro2

my 0.20c

It is good. Remember this is not a three axis gimbal or a P4P camera.
