I’m new to drones, but decided to try one out to get some more interesting video and I’m glad I did. However because it is so new to me I didn’t really want to spend loads of cash on one if I wasn’t going to use it, so I decided to pick up a used one.
I managed to get a fly more kit with a few extras for a bargain price, but when it turned up I had issues connecting and paring. There wasn’t a whole load of information out there other than forum posts, but I managed to piece everything together and get it working again. Hopefully the guide will help you as well.
Before you do this, its a good idea to plug the spark into DJI Assistant and check the firmware version and / or factory reset it.
- Hold down the power button on the Spark for 9 seconds until you hear three beeps. Then do the same on the controller.
- Power off both the Spark and the controller.
- Power on the controller and then hold down the pause, Fn and bottom right shoulder button (underneath the camera button) until you hear continuous beeping.
- Power on the Spark, then press and hold the power button until you hear one beep. Make sure your controller isn’t too far away from the Spark. You will see the controller connect to the Spark and its lights turn green.
Dont forget you need to WiFi connect to the controller and then open the DJI app. Hopefully you’ll be up and flying in no time.
