DJI Spark Camera Upgrade: How Easy/Hard to do?

Given the limitations of “Virtual Stick Commands” on DJI Fly Waypoint Missions, and the decent Prices for Spark Drones on eBay ($169 from a highly rated seller), would an Upgrade in Camera be something to consider since the Spark doesn’t use VSC and can do true “Autonomous” Missions? The Flight time would be short but a 2.7K Camera would be an awesome improvement.

Spark takes photos in 4k. You can shoot timelapses and hyperlapses in high resolution.

However, it is most likely impossible to connect another camera to the dji spark

@paxxa, thanks again for helping me to understand the differences in Camera Quality Settings for the Spark. I am seriously considering getting one very soon!

Silent screws are used in this video, the same ones are used for mavic air 1

“Silent Screws”? Do these control the noise of the Props or the Gimbal movements?
