DJI Mavic Pro or Spark for gift for 15 year old

2 years 6 months ago #549194 by Ben Vanderbilt
My brothers kid is accelerating at electronics and loves anything that fly's.  He want's a drone for Christmas.  I think the larger DJI drones are a bit much for the kid.  However I see they have a Mavic Pro and then a yet smaller Spark.  

Trying to decide which of these 2 will be best for him.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  

Thanks gang.

Both will be good gifts, however the Spark will be slightly more of a starter drone IMO

I have Phantom 3, Phantom 4 and their Spark, and I have to say, that Spark is one of my favorites to fly!  Yes, it's a great gift for anyone who has interest in flying a drone.

IMO if you get the Spark, you need to get the More fly option with the controller, I think flying a drone with your phone is more novelty and seriously hinders the range of flight.
