Testing out the DJI Spark Shooting Some Airguns

This test of the DJI Spark Mini Drone was done more from the perspective of using it for my airguns channel but I do plan to use My DJI Spark Mini Drone to record and follow me in a similar way when I use it for videos. The method I use in this video doesn't even require a remote control or smartphone and I can have it take off right out of my hand.

I then use hand gestures to control the DJI Spark Drone to do things like: Place the drone in the right starting location, make the DJI Spark start recording video, have the Spark zoom up and out from me for an "eye in the sky" aerial follow me mode and then of course when I am finished what I want it to record have the DJI Spark return to me and land again on my hand. Again all of this without even taking the remote out of the box or even using a smartphone to control the DJI Spark Mini Drone!

Watch me test out the DJI Spark Mini Drone in my backyard while I shoot some of my Airguns at miscellaneous targets while I walk around and have the DJI Spark follow me while recording video.


DJI Spark Fly More Combo Unboxing Video

What? Another Drone? Is GetFitOver40 becoming a drone review channel... No I am not going to be reviewing drones as a habit but I did decide to upgrade my Yuneec Breeze 4K to a DJI Spark for a number of reasons.

Reason number one it's a DJI and they simply make some of the best Drones you can buy for the money. The main reason I ultimately went with the DJI Spark is because it just takes better quality 1080p Video which is what I'm after. It does this because it has a dedicated 2 axis mechanical gimbal that smoothes out the video even before the internal stabilization gets to it and make the video look even smoother so the end video output is incredibly smooth!

Some other reasons I feel the DJI Spark Fly More Combo was a better option for me are: It's super small, it was not really a lot more expensive, it has better tracking technology and can even understand hand and arm gestures for flying without even using a remote of any kind. The DJI Spark can fly faster and much farther than the Yuneec Breeze and has a little bit better battery run time.

In this DJI Spark Fly More Combo Unboxing Video I open the box for the first time and take a look at what you get inside. I had not flown the DJI Spark or even checked it out yet so everything is new to me and I am seeing it first hand and for the first time. I can say it is way smaller than I thought it was going to be. Look forward to some cool drone video on the channel in some of my upcoming videos...


Yuneec Breeze 4K Selfie Drone Preview Unboxing Video

This is by far not my full review for the Yuneec Breeze 4K Selfie Drone but I do show you around the Yuneec Breeze 4K Selfie Drone and even include a little bit of some of my initial video from some test flying when I first got it.

My first impressions are that it's pretty decent for what I paid which was half price at my local Best Buy here in Canada, a whopping $249 which is pretty cheap for what the Yuneec Breeze 4K Selfie Drone offers.

All I am really looking for in a drone is for it to take good stable 1080p video that will match up quality wise with the rest the video I am recording. I also want my drone to be able to follow me and or track me while I do outside videos. The Yuneec Breeze 4K Selfie Drone can do all fo this and even more with its selfie mode recording options like Orbit Mode, Journey Mode, Follow Me Mode and Seflie Mode.

All I need to do now is figure out how it all works so I can get my Yuneec Breeze 4K Selfie Drone working for me!
