DJI Spark Body Shell replacement (complete teardown)

Got myself a DJI Spark Drone over Christmas which I assume a lot of people did as well because drones are soo hot nowadays and they are just perfect as gifts.  Like every kid, I was very excited to fly my drone but the temperature was so low (mostly below 0°C) and the weather wasn’t helping, I only had a few chances to fly it during the winter time.  With not a lot of practice, one big accident into a tree 20m tall tree, it fell straight down onto the concrete ground like a rock, it ended up with a broken arm and it would not be able to fly again.  The good news is, after doing some research online, I found out that I could actually order the DJI Spark body shell (not from DJI) from AliExpress for just CAD$30, but there will be a lot of disassembling/assembling to do in order to get the drone flying again which is not an easy task (after watching many many videos on YouTube).  Anyhow, instead of buying another drone or ask DJI for an estimate, I decided to just get the body shell and see if it is possible to repair it.

While waiting for the parts to arrive (which took about 4 weeks time), watched a lot of teardown videos on YouTube but didn’t really see any that documented the whole process of how to replace a DJI Spark broken body shell (which I assumed a lot of people broke their drones…).  So when the body shell arrived last week, I decided to put together a video (DJI Spark Body Shell replacement (complete teardown).  Hope this helps the people trying to figure out what the options are if something similar happened.

Many thanks to my friend Sunny for doing most of the disassembling/assembling.

“kids” – a short video using my Sony ActionCam

Finally made a video using some of the footage from my Sony ActionCam, while I was uploading to YouTube,  I realized the last video I uploaded was almost 2 years ago.  I here to promise, I will make videos more frequently.  Anyways, here is a video of some misc. short clips of kids that I hang out with almost every week that’s why I call this video “kids”.  FYI, in the beginning and at the end, those clips were shot in 120 fps slow motion mode, and for the rest were just regular 30 fps, enjoy!

New Year’s Eve 2012 recap

The New years Eve 2012 was not as exciting as the previous years but we had tons of fun because we could celebrate it with some of our best friends together 😀  We didn’t really have any plans for the day and we kind of made our last minute decision after our lunch.  Went to Costco and grabbed all the food we needed, then to Baskin Robins to get our dessert, that’s about it 😀  Really didn’t expect Grace would lose her voice because she was perfectly fine the day before, we really thought we would lose some fun if she couldn’t talk but instead, it was even more funny 😛

and here is a video of Grace that night, super funny :p

Anyways, a year had past, a New year has come, so what’s your New Year’s resolution?
