No obstacle avoidance system is a big letdown for me.

Before you buy:

- No obstacle avoidance
- No usb charging. Need to bring the charging brick
- Cannot control with phone
- No gestures, no tap to fly, no active track
- No manual controls, terrible for backlit situations when you need to change exposure
- Stuck in CE mode (rated range less than 500m)
- Propeller is screwed to the motor with phillips screw, need to bring screwdriver to change props

Actually it's fine if you're just getting into drones, but for seasoned drone flyers, there are better alternatives out there... waiting for a spark 2 with 2.7k 3 axis gimbal and 30 minute flight time

Hope they made changes to the app for manual control, the rest are not really in my priority list. Not with the drones budget range anyway

I'd like to from a beginner's point of view (I've only flown toy drones with no hover mode), is a used Spark with 3x batteries a better option or a Mavic Mini with3x batteries?

Prices have dropped especially used Spark's.

I know the main difference being obstacle avoidance + follow mode + less flight time.

my usage is just flying around for photos while travelling.

Combo

I think you can survey those drone and photography shops if you want to walk-in purchase.

Saw KLDSLR already have stocks in but not sure they have the combo or not

IMO, if you prefer longer flight time and portability over manual controls for your pictures and videos, the mini looks more suitable for you.

I'm saying this because not all people want to fuss with the camera settings and the mini's SOOC quality is pretty solid.

- Just learnt that you can charge the brick with powerbank
- For Malaysia market, some seller is selling FCC version, it's worth confirming with the seller first before buying

Some negatives
- Drone not able to fly well in high altitude situations
- Micro usb port on drone and controller is quite flimsy and can break easily

Is it really worthwhile to buy "official" Malaysia warranty? Does it have crash coverage etc?

Ask seller before buying
If the DJI fly app can check wifi bands, then if 2.4G wifi bands only up to 11 channels, that means it's FCC, more than that, then it's CE
