Hey guys,

I'm new to the drones, new to the Spark, and this is my 1st post so bear with me. I took the Spark out last weekend for the first few flights, and then recorded some video. The recorded video doesn't look all that great, so maybe I can get some feedback or where to look for setting up the camera properly.

I took the video just before dark, so there wasn't great light which is part of it. I also had not made any changes to the default camera settings, so I'm sure that would help if I knew where to start. Anyway, here is the short video I took. It seems there's a lot of pixelation, but again I'm sure it's a settings/light issue.


Anyway, thx for the feedback and looking forward to getting to know this community, I'm having a lot of fun with the Spark already!

Hello from the Hoosier Heartland, voodoo.

What Andre said is correct.

By the way, does the HSA pay for any damages from errant golf balls to the homes?:p

Welcome to the Forum.:cool:

Is that the 1080 HD video obtained by inserting the micro SD card in your computer? Or is that just the low quality video that was cached on your phone?

Those two sources make a HUGE difference
Hmm, that's something to check for sure. I thought I used the footage I downloaded from the SD card, but I will check because I know there is footage on my phone as well. Thanks for the heads up on that.

Spark 317, that neighborhood is in Westfield, IN. It's a little par 3 so nobody is cranking the golf balls down the fairway, but those homes are right on the course!

Small world.
I had relatives that owned some farmland back in the day and sold it to developers.

That area is now the gated community of Bridgewater, in Westfield.

Hamilton County is on the move!:)

That's wild! This community is called Chatham Hills. From what I've seen around there, it was all farmland and now it's a lot of very nice homes and the Colts training facility is a mile from there.

They used to live just south in Carmel, and moved to Westfield just a couple years ago.
