To know how well your drone could fly is critical to making drone videos. You want to concentrate on what the audience loves to watch from their perspective, so just focus on making those kinds of videos. This will take time in order to know what your audience wants to watch, so just keep making them.

But people are asking the question, now that I’ve bought a DJI Spark, I want to make videos with it, what do I do with it? I’m going to do my best to help you make better videos with these 5 cool drone tricks.

First Cool Drone Trick – Remote Start 00:32

Imagine your ready to safely launch your DJI Spark but your smartphone is not being used. You may be searching for how to launch your DJI Spark with your remote, and you’re in luck!

Simply pull both joysticks simultaneously! Left joystick diagonally down to the left and the right joystick down and to the right. The same way to turn on your Spark is the exact same way you could turn it off.

Second Cool Drone Trick – Circle 2:39

This trick is called “Circle” and it allows you to highlight an area around your subject, press “GO” and the DJI Spark will fly in a perfect circle all on its own. The sensors are facing your subject, so you should only do this in a wide open space like a park or a field.

Third Cool Drone Trick – Dronie 3:05

The “Dronie” trick is basically a selfie video with your drone. It’s great for making a small section of land appear bigger and personally, I think it creates a cool looking video. Highlight your subject by touching and dragging your finger across the screen and tap “GO”.

A Word of Caution: Your DJI Spark does not have any sensors behind it, so your drone needs a clear path to fly or else it will be at the mercy of tree branches or buildings…lol!

Fourth Cool Drone Trick – Helix 3:51

Just like the circle trick, the “Helix” spirals far away from your subject and will continue to do so until your drone stops all by itself. Use plenty of space when using this trick!

Fifth Cool Drone Trick – Rocket 4:28

This is an awesome trick where the drone locks onto your subject, flies directly over it and then climbs altitude for about 145 feet (44m). This would look great if you are in a clearing in a patch of woods and want the drone fly out of the woods.

First Bonus Drone Trick – Object Detection 1:12

Select sport mode “Off” and your DJI Spark will fly slower but will stop once it comes close to an object like tree branches. When you select sport mode “On”, the sensors are turned off and you can fly your DJI Spark at full speed. I’ve recorded my Spark’s top speed at 38mph. Nice!

Second Bonus Drone Trick – Take Videos & Pictures 1:34

Your drone comes equipped with a 1080p camera which is fantastic video quality. Once your drone is in the air, press the video record button on the top left corner. To snap a picture, simply press the camera button at the top right corner.

Third Bonus Drone Trick – Quick Shutoff 5:12

To quickly shut off your drone while it’s hovering in the air. Firmly grab it from underneath and rotate it sideways until you hear and see the blades stop spinning.

    The catch-to-turn-off is a nifty trick. I find that approaching the Spark from the back is better because the Spark's front sensor can make it back away from you as you try to approach it with your hand from the front. You should also mention to not come in from under the Spark too because the bottom sensor will make the Spark ascend away from your hand if you try to catch it from below. So coming in from the back is the best for this trick.

    I've also started even launching the drone from the palm of my hand too! This way, my DJI Spark never touches the ground and doesn't get dirty with dust off dirt or from weeds hitting the blades. I like to "baby" my drones and this little Spark's size is perfect for hand catches & launches. 🙂

    That's not tricks, more like tutorial which explains Spark's flight mode.

    Let me give one trick :
    Using active track trace mode & swipe direction to left / right by 100%, the spark will circle & follow as well when subject moving.

    That's cinematic shot.

    You said sport mode off enables the obstacle detection sensors. That is not correct. You can turn off obstacle avoidance or turn it on while you are not in sport mode. It is a setting in the sensors from the menu of the DJI app the on a smart phone. Flying with obstacle avoidance turned on in regular mode (not sport mode), the spark fly at about 6 mph, with obstacle avoidance turned off the spark fly at about 12 mph

    I will make a video of my spark soon and would like to re introduce like what you did here. I’m glad I saw this, great help.
    I just have one question bro, if the spark is in video recording and grab it and turn it side ways to stop the motor, will it save in the SD? Watching from Philippines 🇵🇭
