DJI Spark is a popular drone released in 2017. It is very small and lightweight (although it was later bested by the Mavic Mini), which means that you won’t need special permits for the drone in certain locations. Of course, you should check your local laws.
The Spark has a 12MP 1/2.3-inch sensor, which takes solid photos and is capable of recording 1080p video at up to 30 fps. This may not be impressive by today’s standards, but keep in mind that this is a simple drone aimed at beginners. Unlike some of its more expensive cousins, DJI Spark doesn’t have internal memory, meaning that in order to shoot photos and videos, you’ll have to invest in a microSD card. With that said, let’s check out some of the best memory cards for DJI Spark.

Best MicroSD Cards for DJI Spark Drone
The Spark has a single microSD card slot and it requires UHS-I memory cards. Like we already mentioned, it can record 1080p videos at up to 30 fps. The maximum bitrate the Spark uses is 24 Mbit/s (3 MB/s), meaning that it’s quite undemanding when it comes to SD cards. There’s absolutely no point in getting faster (and much more expensive) UHS-II memory cards for this drone. Having said that, let’s check out the best microSD cards for DJI Spark.
|MEMORY CARD||WRITE SPEED||READ SPEED||GET CARD|
|SanDisk Extreme microSDXC 128GB UHS-I||Up to 90 MB/s||Up to 170 MB/s|
|Lexar Professional 667X Video 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I||Up to 90 MB/s||Up to 100 MB/s|
|Samsung EVO MicroSDXC 128GB UHS-I||Up to 90 MB/s||Up to 100 MB/s|
When it comes to size of microSD cards, we suggest sticking with 128 GB or 64 GB cards as they’ll allow you to store a lot of footage without having to worry about running out of memory. If you’re trying to save a bit of money, you can go with 32 GB cards. We hope our guide helped you find the right microSD card for your DJI Spark.
