DJI Spark Fly More Combo Quadcopter Drone (UK) £519 at VERY

37
Found 28th Nov
Seems to have dropped even further in price within the last 24hrs . I missed out on the recent Maplin £499.99 deal so took advantage of this with also 12 months BNPL option offered. Other colours available.

Not sure why this is being voted cold? This is by far the cheapest around at the moment and almost the same as the Maplin deal which was red hot! Sure there are a lot of people who will jump on this after missing out on the £499 price

Probably because it’s from VERY, Plus people might be assuming the price includes the usual “20% off for new accounts”.

Amazon are offering this for the same price in yellow and blue

Confused, why cold? £80 cheaper than elsewhere...

Heat! I cancelled my order from Tomtop for the combo (which came to 400 after cashback tracked) to go for this just so that I can get a UK warranty.

Quidco tracked at £30 for this (I created a new very account). I ordered this morning but still showing as 'processing' any one else have this? I didn't get an order confirmation email either

Ordering dji from very !!! Still have nightmares good luck

Still showing as processing and no order confirmation email, even though it's been almost 4 hours. Getting twitchy because if the order doesn't go through, I want to be able to order from amazon at this price as a second option.

Now back up to £699. I ordered one this morning from Very. Then cancelled it. It's still sitting in my account and saying order processing even though I've called them twice. They don't make getting a refund easy either. Said it could take up to three days as it had to be checked by some department. Could hardly hear what they were saying on the phone either.

Price back up to £699...

I use their live chat. You don’t have to sit in a queue on the phone either. You still queue on the chat option but at least you can get on with your life

Hi Rich, just wondering, since you also ordered this morning - is your Spark order still showing as 'processing' and have you received any order confirmation email?

Thanks for letting me know. Darn customer services told me its normal when I called them at lunch, but I was skeptical. Guess I'll have to go on the live chat to ask rather than call this time. Always have problems with Very because their system doesn't recognise my flat address!

Customer service will tell you anything in my opinion . You might find it states processed during office hours tomorrow. Probably a bit of a delay. Not to cause any worry but I had a bad experience with them this time last year when I ordered the Mavic. They kept moving the goalpost until after 2 months of it , I received a cancellation without any notice. VERY frustrating! No pun intended

Customer service says the order was held because the credit team needs to verify some details with me - despite the fact that no one has contacted me all day and the fact that I didn't even chose the credit option - I chose to pay immediately in full and payment was authorised!! Ridiculous. I just hope this doesn't affect the quidco since that was the reason I went with them over amazon! I guess this is why people dislike Very haha (although this deal should have never been cold!)

Just had confirmation my order has been dispatched.

When is your expected delivery date? After much further hassle and horrendous customer service by Very, they have finally released my order but are saying it will be delivered on the 6th or the 7th of December! So slow, even though I paid £4 for delivery. I think I lost the equivalent of that in Toll-number charges. Definitely going to be avoiding them in future.

Hey rich. Replied to you above. Also tried replying twice more but for some reason hukd is keeping all my comments in moderation queue for half hour+, trying on phone instead. What's your expected delivery date?

Oh sorry to hear that . If you kick up a fuss they seem to put you onto a more professional team but at this time of year I can imagine one can only pray for no problems. They do have some cracking deals at times so I guess there has to be a cost cut somewhere as a result. It originally stated 5th but in my experience only a day or couple of days after dispatch .

Thanks for the info! Oh if your expected delivery date was showing as 5th Dec, I guess mine of 6 / 7th isn't that outrageous. Is your expected date still listed as the 5th despite them having dispatched? Please do let me know if it arrives tomorrow or friday, because that means theres a chance that mine will be dispatched tomorrow and arrive this weekend (was really hoping to have a play this weekend since I am free!).Their customer service seemed to emphasise that it will arrive on the 6th or 7th, rather than by the 6th or 7th, but maybe they're mistaken.

Mine still says 5th but it’s going to be much sooner. Possibly tomorrow. If you’ve got processed showing then it’s possibly you could receive it for the weekend but obviously no guarantee

Out for delivery apparently

That's great, enjoy! are you going to get any insurance / dji care refresh for it?

My tracking shows that yodel has it, so if it follows the same timeline as yours it should arrive tomorrow (although that's not ideal since I will be at work and no one will be around to sign for it! And it seems yodel's system doesn't allow you to make different arrangements until they try once to deliver, and fail, which seems very counterintuitive! :/)

rich1466 h, 34 m ago

Btw what's the packaging like, I'm guessing it's wrapped in a cardboard box so you can't tell what it is? Wondering if it's safe to try and rearrange delivery to work, since it seems yodel don't deliver on weekends (what kind of courier doesn't!?)

No I won’t be taking out the refresh. I never do. This is actually my cheapest drone I fly so not so worried and I don’t crash in water etc. Packaging is covered what is inside isn’t known. Has yours arrived yet ?

Ah ok, its my first proper drone so i'll definitely be taking something out, although trying to find something thats a bit better value than the refresh. and no mine hasn't arrived it arrived at their 'shaw hub; depot at 5am and I rang them at 8am asking for it to be left with neighbours. Got home hoping it'd be waiting for me, but nope, tracking still shows as at the hub! Apparently they deliver on weekends during the xmas rush so really hoping it arrives tomorrow, although yodels delivery estimate still shows as 5th argh the wait is killing me!

Flew mine today but inside (at work ). Extremely stable. Very impressed. I updated all the firmware etc. I put the guards on immediately especially when flying close to objects and indoors. Certainly until I trust it’s functioning as it should. Outside I will take the guards off. Have also ordered another battery from amazon

I've read that using an OTG cable to connect the phone to the remote (rather than using wifi to connect phone to remote) improves performance significantly, but that the latest android app update removes this ability, so I shall be using the earlier app version. How much did you order the battery for? considering getting another myself, although 2 might be plenty.

Original Poster

Update - I’ve decided to take out the refresh insurance. I don’t normally do this but for £60 I thought it wasn’t too bad. Besides you only have a short period of time to decide. Genuine battery from amazon is currently £48. I ordered another battery but cancelled as I’ve gone for the portable charging pack (with 2 batteries included ) and a bag direct from DJI so cancelled the amazon order. 4 batteries should be about right but then I can also charge on the go. I’ll sell the rest of the combo kit such as bag and charger to fund it probably.

I got my spark on Sat! (delivery wasn't due until monday and hadn't been loaded onto van, so I trekked all the way to their depot to pick up). Just quickly trying to do DJI Care refresh now before the window is up. I placed an order through the app, but strangely it requested shipping information (It's a service, what do they need to ship?). Do you know if I am now covered after placing the order, or whether I need to wait for them to ship a code or something to me? (but by that time the 48 hour window will be over?) How did it work for you?

I did mine via the DJI website so maybe slightly different to your app version .You are covered immediately and you should receive an email within a few hours. I take it you’ve got it all figured out by now ? Have you had a chance to fly yet ?

Hi, yep I've indeed got it figured out, thanks! And yeah I've had some chances to fly but they've been few and far between due to the awful weather and early sunsets! How about you?

Really enjoying it though, and starting to look into video editing, there's still a lot left to learn and try out though. I've also done the FCC mod (which basically just means using installing a different app - takes 5 mins, to remove the crippled range restriction that is placed in EU models and restore it to the power thats seen in US models) which is meant to vastly increase signal strength and range of the drone (I can pm you a link if interested).
