Go Case for DJI Spark

Published

on

An unboxing and review video of the Go Case for the DJI Spark from GoScope. This is a well made minimal case that fits the DJI Spark perfectly. If you are looking for a case that can store batteries and all the goodies for your DJI Spark then this is not the case for you. However if you are looking for a small and compact case that can easily fit into any camera bag or backpack then this little case may be just what you are looking for. Check out our YouTube review.

I love to hike and explore, and I always take my GoPro gear with me in my seeker backpack. This little case fits perfectly in the bottom with lots of room to spare. The DJI Spark is a nice compact drone that is easy to pack and with the GoScope Go Case you can still pack and protect your drone without sacrificing too much room in your backpack. The package also includes a nice small molded case for the Spark controller.

Smatree Portable Charging Station For DJI Spark | Review and Thoughts

Published

on

One of the nice features of the DJI Spark is the ability to charge it via a USB cable and a power bank. You can plug the Spark into a power bank and it will charge which is great when you out on location and you have burned through all your batteries. The problem is you can only charge one battery at a time and worse your drone is tied up while charging. This is where the portable charging station by Smatree comes in. Essentially this unit is a 8100 mAh power bank with battery charging bays for the DJI Spark built in. This portable charger allows you to charge 3 spark batteries simultaneously in about 45 minutes…that is supper fast. It can charge a total of 6 batteries before the entire unit needs a recharged. There is also a USB port on the side of the unit that can be used to recharge your Spark controller or even your smart phone. The charger does have some weight to it (12.8 ounces) but still very portable and easily packed in a backpack.

Smatree Portable Charger (Updated Version)

I want to point out that Smatree has updated the portable charging station since I filmed my video and what a great update it was. The old version used a micro USB connector to recharge the power bank at (5V/2A) this worked fine, however it takes over 14 hours to recharge at this rate. The updated unit now comes with it own dedicated charger that plugs into a wall socket and directly into the power bank. The new charging specs are (8.7V/4A) and the unit can now be recharged from empty in about 3.5 to 4 hours. Such a welcome upgrade!

This is a fantastic charger and I think it is a must have accessory for every DJI Spark pilot. I really wish all drones would adopt this method of USB charging, It would save a fortune not having to buy so many extra batteries just so you can have a full day of flying.

Unboxing The DJI Goggles Racing Edition

Published

on

This is just a simple unboxing video of the DJI Goggles Racing Edition. We plan on making more advanced training and tutorial videos soon. We thought it would be best to split the videos up as not to have all the information crammed into one video.  Watch our YouTube unboxing video.

There are two versions of the DJI Goggles, the original version which are white and the racing edition which is black. The racing edition goggle have a few extra features and design enhancements. In the racing edition goggles DJI has redesigned the head band to make them a little more comfortable to wear as well as a redesigned face plate to make it fit a little nicer to the face and help prevent fogging of the goggles. The DJI Racing Edition Goggles also support non DJI drones such as analog racing drones. This is noticeable by the antenna that is not present on the original goggles. The racing edition goggles also supports viewing of 360 and VR panos shot on the various DJI Drones.

I opted to purchase the DJI Racing Edition goggles so I only need to carry one pair of goggles no matter if I wish to FPV with my DJI drone or with some smaller racing quads. As for DJI Drones the goggles work wirelessly with the Mavic Pro and variants such as the Mavic Pro Platinum via Ocusync. The DJI Goggles also work well with the DJI Spark, Mavic Air and the Phantom 4 series of drones via a wired connection.

Both versions of the goggles also support playback of any device that outputs HDMI. The goggles for example can be used to watch Netflix movies via an iPhone.

Like I stated this article is not a review of the goggles but I would like to add that I was extremely impressed when flying the Mavic Air with the DJI goggles. I have only had a few chances to get and fly with them but I really was amazing at how immersive it was. They are a little pricey but well worth the money in my opinion. There is not much more I am going to cover in this article but make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel and bookmark our website for more detailed videos on how to use the DJI Goggles that we will be creating over the coming weeks.
