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.
