I'm assuming that means the weight is 300 g without the prop guards or additional optional accessories installed.

You should be able to fly without prop guards then. No?

I saw someone on youtube who has weighted the spark : 305 gr without prop guard, 344 gr with. Weight limit in France is 800 gr, so even the Mavic pro is good :).

Does anyone know if the D-log color profile will be available on the Spark ?

The Spark manual recommends not flying in wind speeds exceeding 22 MPH. Depending on your skill level, you might want to fly in calmer conditions or you might be able to exceed those wind speeds. When flying in high winds, just keep in mind that it's going to be tough (or impossible) to make it back to the home point when flying into a strong headwind.

Got a question that you cannot find the answer to? Ask it below.
Are you sure the fly more only has 1 additional battery? I contacted customer service online chat and they said you get two extra 3 total.

Looking closely at the website I see only one additional battery is included. Another case of wrong information from DJI support.

They probably are used to talking about the mavic fly more which comes with 2 extra batteries. It's a shame that spark FM only comes with 2 total. Maybe they will sell the charging base/ dock with a third battery since it has room for the spark and 2 batteries

Here's a good question.

Are the remote dimensions for Spark (joystick spacing and height) the same as Mavic remote?

I ask because I saw joystick protectors that prevent joysticks from being smashed while in a bag for transport.

FLY MORE COMBO has only 2 batteries. It was confirmed on the DJI web site and again at the DJI Spark Launch (watch the launch video and you'll see it is specifically mentioned that there are 2 batteries).

It appears to be. It would make sense so that there is not a lot of re-tooling required to make the Spark controller. Also the Mavic Controller is about as small as you'd want for the comfort when cradling a cell phone so the Spark controller would be no smaller.
