First flight. trying to take endless pics of drone code to sync, head scratching, until I got a 'fly' symbol, first flight? a lame 100 foot up and down, then I got brave, and actually moved a couple of feet away and down, home , chuffed I landed, complete, scared, lame and pathetic, I figure as the drones get cheaper, and the Spark gets older, we will risk it more, and by doing so get greater pics and videos..first year I treated it like a delicate, flying camera....and now, maybe, still a bit lame ;)

I do remember it well, it was my M1P, about 4 years ago . . . flew there again today for some prop testing, again with the M1P.
Spark had 3 batteries charged to fly afterwards, but alas it started sprinkling rain so packed up and left.
Tomorrow the Spark might get a fly.
I still have the first airborne photos taken with the Mavic Pro and Spark too.

I had same feelings and did a very similar flight still get stressed at any distance flight if Spark came down in rough country I am not physically capable of climbing over rough terrain

I seriously remember my first flight. Flying this $700 CAD Spark. I didn't have my controller yet but wanted to get airborne. So, I found a big open space in the front yard. Started it up, lifted up to 10 ft, held, and landed again. That was my first flight! :D

I had flown with a cheapo drone lots, and learned a lot about flight and angles etc but, this was serious. Then when my remote came it became a whole new world. Still to this day, one of the greatest pieces of photography kit that I've bought!
