The ScharkSpark advanced is the next evolution in the foldable Drone Guard for Beginners drones line. This pocket drone is much smaller and compact, easy to carry around in my backpack. ScharkSpark wanted people to be able to tell their story using a drone and just made it easier for anyone to do so. This mini-drone is a perfect gift for children, or for those interested in getting into remote control quadcopters.
However, don’t try flying this drone in winds higher than 10mph, or you may lose your Drone Guard for Beginners. The stylish and robust design coupled with the elegant factor makes this an attractive drone. The main sticks feel like quality items, and the screen has a handy pop-up sun shade. The app is very easy to use and I am surprised how easy it is to use with VR headset. Headless mode is very easy for beginners, and it goes precisely where you point your drone. Flight is very comparable and stable and you can maintain flight height by itself, no more crashing to the ceiling like with other drones. Auto landing and take off feature is very nice (need to press twice to take off). Emergency stop button prevents damage when you are about to crash. The camera angle is slightly adjustable, and you can tilt it more forward or downward facing. A video is detailed & superb on the record I’d say it’s one of the best in its class BUT video feed to controller breaks up a bit. Quadcopter captures the image with its resolution HD camera.
This drone comes with a removable battery which makes it easy to recharge over time the battery will degrade, but a new one can be ordered. Interestingly enough, most camera-compatible drones have a massive drop in battery power when a camera is mounted. Comes with two batteries so you can keep on flying, and lots of spare parts. The return to home button works reasonably well, but sometimes the drone sits there and crashes into something. Overall the upgraded ScharkSpark Drone Guard for Beginners quadcopter has superb features that make it fun to fly, and super simple to control.
