Buy yourself a DJI Spark from a trusted vendor at the best possible price. The Fly More Combo that includes 2 additional batteries, fast charging hub, prop guards and extra props is the best deal. Don’t forget the SD card to capture all that great footage.
STEP 1 [strongly recommended]
Get DJI Care Refresh to protect your investment. For a small deductible your aircraft will be replaced by DJI – even if the damage is entirely pilot error. You can even get DJI Care outside the 48 hour activation window by submitting a verification video. It’s great piece of mind because everybody crashes… eventually.
STEP 2 [required]
Register with the FAA as a hobbyist drone pilot under Section 336. Affix the assigned number on a sticker inside the battery compartment. Cost is $5 for a 3 year term.
Get a protective carrying case for your aircraft before you start hauling it around. It will keep all your gear organized and protected.
Understand and follow the drone regulations for safe and legal flights.
