    Which one? - I was almost sold on getting a DJI Mavic. But the new Spark is tempting.

    Goggles too?

    My drone experience involves watching their imagery or relying on them to keep me safe on the ground. I could never afford one of these...

    I got the Alpine white Ltd edition .... I have put some leg extensions on it to keep the gimbal camera safe when landing ... I also fitted some of the newer quieter blades that the Mavic platinum Pro has got which is quite a bit quieter and apparently gives a little bit more flying time

    It has a tracking mode on it which is why I got it really so I can film myself riding my Rocket and driving my SL350 .... it has a sports mode that takes it to 40mph .... it also has a range of 4 miles +

    Are you using FPV?
    Odd - that was exactly what had me looking at it.
