This is a quite long but interesting video for any of you who may have crashed or otherwise damaged their DJI Spark drone and are looking to possibly fix it yourselves. Adamant IT from the YouTube channel “Let’s fix computers” shows us how you can take a DJI Spark apart and transplant all the internal components to a new DJI Spark body shell.

The Parrot Bebop 2 is the best drone you can buy for under $300. With the Bebop 2, you get a pretty serious machine. It has a 25-minute flight time, 2,000-meter range, and a 14 MP camera. The wide angle lens and electronic image stabilization of the Bebop 2 are impressive. This is an excellent beginner drone for anyone looking to get into aerial photography. It is surprisingly quiet but still powerful. The camera has the most impressive electronic image stabilization that I have ever tested. While it may not be quite as nice as the new Parrot Anafi, at half the price of the Anafi, the Bebop 2 it is a heck of a deal. expand full story

Even with its limitations, the Breeze beats the competition. I’ll tell you why.
