    I got my Spark when they first came out, so I've logged quite a lot of flying time, but I'm looking for a community to be involved with!

    Nice to meet everyone!



    Here is a photo I took with my Spark:

    Nice pic! Did you use any filters or manual camera settings? Looks like it was shooting into the sun is the only reason I ask. Really good shot if just auto settings.

    I always use manual everything if I can and if I remember. This was 2 shots with the AEB combined. One for the foreground and one for the background. Thanks for noticing!

    very cool, thanks! I am looking for a place where you get more feedback than just "cool video" and stuff like that.

    Hi Robert, I live in San Juan Capistrano, loved your footage of the beach & The Ritz Carlton. I'm also an off roader & want to go back to some places I have visited before I got my Spark. There are tons of abandoned mines & cabins around Joshua Tree & the Mojave that would make for some cool video

    There's some amazing places just to the east of the actual park, place is called The Virginia Dale Mining District. If you have a 4x4 I can give you co ords to some great spots
