Hi all,

Very unimpressed with my DJI Spark & DJI Goggles, and the money I paid for them. The video transmission feed quality is very poor, even from a few metres away (FCC mode, OTG cable, phone on airplane mode, no interference etc). It is so low-quality that FPV is impossible.

I have a much cheaper DYS Shark mini-whoop with a set of Eachine EV800D goggles. About £200 altogether. The video transmission feed quality is far superior to the DJI.

Pictures attached.

I want to sell my DJI so I can buy a different small GPS drone that I can use 5.8G goggles with. I don't want to start messing around modding the Spark with a separate FPV camera setup. Does anyone have any thoughts on the following?

FIMI A3 - FIMI A3 Drone

FIMI X8 SE - FIMI X8SE 2020

I couldn't seem to find any other decent drones apart from the Hubsan Zino, which is too big and heavy.

Thanks for the advice!

Looks to me you aren't using the footage from the SD card, the phone grabs always aren't that good, download the footage or fotos from the SD card. I have found the Spark to be excellent for video and still images for it's price ! check out my youtube channel " flash - the drone man " Grab_thumb_1d4b.jpeg

Fimi x8 2020 looks pretty sweet!

Were you looking for an FPV drone and got a Spark camera drone?

Why is it that people who want to know about other drones than the great Spark, ask about them on a SPARK forum?! What's wrong with asking about them on their forums? It's tedious enough to scroll through a very long list of subjects related to just the Spark to have non Spark questions adding to that list.sorry for the rant to Spark flyers.

Yikes. With that friendly response I’m not sure why anyone would want to post here.

It is a legitimate question for those who have had a spark and upgraded to something else.

If everyone responds like this you’ll be the only one here and it’ll be easy to scroll though the posts. 😉
