The DJI Spark was available in some colorful variations, but these days if you look to buy a DJI Spark you’re likely to find just the white model available on both DJI’s website and on Amazon. The drone functions are the same, but that white shell is kind of boring. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of options available for personalizing and protecting your DJI Spark with a colorful and customizable skin. Before we start, you’re going to want to make sure you’ve properly cleaned your drone and if you don’t have the proper cleaning supplied on hand, we’ve got them all covered here:
