How to Set Up and Use DJI Spark (Guide)

There are times when the built-in emojis are simply insufficient, and you can’t even locate the ideal GIF to express your emotions. Due to the capability for custom emojis in Discord, you don’t need to worry about any of this. To make interactions more enjoyable, Discord lets you upload and use your own unique emoticons on servers. This post will teach you how to make and add personalised emoticons to your Discord server if you’re wanting to brighten up your server.

Set Up DJI Spark With Your Smartphone

Custom emojis are frequently used on Discord servers, but if you have a Discord Nitro subscription, you may also use them in direct messages. Now that we have that out of the way, here is all you need to know about Discord’s support for custom emojis.

  • To start off, download the DJI GO 4 app for your smartphone. It is completely free and is available for both Android and iOS.
  • Open the DJI app and Login with your DJI account. If you don t have one, tap the Register option to create a new account.
  • Now, connect the battery to your DJI Spark and turn it on. To do so, press and hold the battery power button for 3 seconds. Now, hold the drone power button for 9 seconds till you hear 3 continuous beeps.
  • Now, open the WiFi settings on your smartphone and connect to the drone s WiFi. The WiFi details should be mentioned on the drone s box or underneath the battery compartment.
  • Once you ve connected to the drone s WiFi, open the DJI GO 4 app. The app will now check for any firmware updates. If found, reconnect to your WiFi with Internet access and download the update file. Then, reconnect to the drone s WiFi and update its firmware.
  • Next up, power up the remote controller by pressing the power button once, and then holding it for 3 seconds.
  • Now, we need to pair up the remote controller with the drone. To do that, hold the battery power button on the drone for 3 seconds until you hear a single beep. Now, hold the Pause, Function and the Action button on the remote controller for 3 seconds till it starts beeping. The remote controller will now start pairing with the drone.
  • Once it has been paired, the front 2 LEDs on the drone will first blink green and then turn solid red. Also, the status LEDs on the remote controller will turn solid green as well.
  • Now, we need to hook up the smartphone to the remote controller. To do so, open the WiFi settings and connect to the remote controller s WiFi. Note that this WiFi will be different from the aircraft s WiFi, and the credentials for the same can be found on the back side of the remote controller.
  • Once you ve connected to the remote controller s WiFi, open the DJI GO 4 app. If you see a text dialog that says Connected , that means you re good to go. If not, repeat all the steps from the beginning.

Controlling the DJI Spark

1. Taking Off

To better express oneself, use custom emojis in Discord. These emojis come in both static and animated varieties. To your Discord server, you may freely post up to 50 static and 50 animated emojis. To utilise animated emojis on Discord, you and the other users of the server must have Discord Nitro. Additionally, sending emojis between servers is available with a Nitro subscription.

  • Simply move the life stick on the remote controller in the upwards direction slowly to initiate the take-off.
  • The second option is to tap on the take-off button, located in the top-left corner of your screen on the DJI GO 4 app. Upon tapping it, you ll get a notification for confirmation of take-off. Simply slide to confirm the take-off sequence.
  • Finally, if you have the gesture-controls enabled on the device, just hold the device in your hand and slowly raise your hand to guide the drone to take-off.

2. Controlling the DJI Spark Using Gestures

As was already indicated, your server comes with 50 free emoji slots by default. You gain 50 more emoji slots if a Discord server unlocks Level 1 perks (2 Nitro enhancements). This means that you will now have a total of 100 emoji slots available. Additionally, Level 2 servers (15 Nitro boosts) receive 150 slots, while Level 3 servers (30 Nitro boosts) receive an incredible 250 slots.

Before you proceed to design unique emoticons for your Discord server, there are a few things you should bear in mind. Keep in mind that emoji images must be 128 by 128 pixels and cannot be larger than 256 KB. So with that said, let’s get started.

3. Controlling DJI Spark with the DJI GO 4 App

Choose the photo you wish to use for your custom emoji and crop it to a 1:1 aspect ratio. Any photo editing software should work in place of the FastStone Image Viewer that I am using in this instance.

2. Once the image has been cropped, resize it to 128 128 pixels and save it as a PNG. You can now utilise your emote.

Photoshop or well-known websites like can be used to remove the backdrop from your Discord emoticons if you wish them to have a transparent background. For thorough methods, see our guide on removing backgrounds from photographs without Photoshop.

If all of those processes seem too laborious, you may simply choose the best emojis from already-existing Discord servers. The adage “good artists copy, great artists steal” is true. Here’s how you can actually draw inspiration from stylish emoticons on current servers. Be aware that this solution is only compatible with the online and desktop apps for Discord. This is not possible with the Discord mobile app.

1. From now on, all you have to do to send an emoji to a server anytime you see one you like is right-click on it.

2. To save the image to your PC when using Discord from a web browser, select Save Image as.

4. Controlling the Drone Via Remote Control

On the Discord web app, save emoji

  1. The Dial is used to move the camera. You can move the dial left and right to move the camera up and down respectively.
  2. This is the Record button. A single press will switch you to the video recording mode (if you aren t already in that mode), and the second press will start the video recording.
    Finally, press this button again to stop the video recording.
  3. This is the Return to Home button. Pressing and holding this button will make the drone return back to its home position (where it took off from initially), and land automatically.
  4. The Left Stick is used to change the altitude of the drone as well as rotate it. Moving the stick up and down will increase or decrease the elevation of the drone respectively. Also, moving the stick left or right will make the drone rotate along its axis in an anti-clockwise or clockwise direction respectively.
  5. This is the Emergency button. This button is used to apply emergency brakes to the drone while flying at high speeds.
  6. This is the Sports mode switch. Sliding the toggle to the right side enables the sports mode. In this mode, the blades of the drone move as fast as possible, allowing the drone to achieve max speeds of up to 50km/h while moving. This mode is NOT recommended for beginners.
  7. This is the Function button. This button can be customized to perform a specific task as per user discretion. By default, this opens up the advanced camera settings. To modify its action, simply open the DJI GO 4 app > Aircraft Status > Button Customization > Fn, and select the task to your liking.
  8. The Right Stick on the controller is used to change the orientation and maneuver the drone. You can use the analog stick in the 8-axis movement to move the device forward, backward, left, right and diagonally.
  9. This is the Power button. Press and hold it to turn the remote controller on or off.
  10. This is the Camera button. A single press will switch you to the camera mode (if you aren t already in that mode), and the second press will capture the photo.
  11. Next up, we have the C or Action button. This is also a user customizable button. Similar to the function button, by default the button opens up the advanced camera settings. To modify its action, simply open the DJI GO 4 app > Aircraft Status > Button Customization > C, and select the task to your liking.
  12. Finally, this is the micro-USB port, that can be used to charge the remote controller.

3. After right-clicking the emote, users of the official Discord client should select the Save Image option.
