Hello everyone! How're things in your Spark World? This time of year we often get severe weather. These days, I always keep my Spark charged up and in the car with me - you never know when you see something to cause you to pull over and launch Spark to see what you can capture. I live in a rural part of North Texas - I have to drive about 8 miles to get to a grocery store. The radio started mentioning severe weather in my area with a Tornado watch. Once the skies started to darken, I launched Spark. I went thru 4 batteries and this is what came out of it. Are crazy as it looks - there were no tornadoes produced. In some of the hyperlapses, you can see the trees being whipped around. Always amazes me how strong Spark can fly in windy weather!


ps: I don't know why this looks to be low-resolution...it's 1080p, but looks rough for some reason.

Well done! Smooth on the sticks and, despite the wind, the Spark held steady.

She’s a solid craft and I must fly mine more. Thanks for sharing this, the music helps lots to make it even more spectacular.

SoccerRef12, to be fair.... I used Final Cut Pro's stabilization effect to smooth out all the shakiness from all the wind. I noticed you are in Lampasas. Passed thru there many times before when driving 281 down towards the hill country. That's a neat part of the state!

twickers14- I tried so hard to find some music or sound effects that might make it look eerie.

Thanks Dragonfly Joe! Anyone has anything new to share from your Spark? @twickers14 - you haven't been flying Spark much? Have you been flying other drones?
