You can now control the DJI Spark with the Gamevice Controller Accessory

Gamevice is a bit like turning your iPhone or iPad into a Switch, at least in terms of adding physical controls to your gaming experience. But now, the add-on can go beyond of the game, providing a way to easily control the DJI Spark with increased accuracy and improved ergonomics compared to using a single touch screen device.

This is really great news for Spark owners, since the little drone has a lot of success, including relative affordability, and decent image quality. But the only thing that is lacking in the rest of the DJI lineup, is a solid physical controller experience included in the box – the GameVice provides this, with a design that is actually superior to the official DJI controller in many ways.

You plug your phone or tablet into the Gamevice directly via Lightning Connecgtor, and the physical controls reside on each side. There is a full range of buttons that allow you to control all aspects of the drone, including theft and capture of photos and videos.

In addition to Spark support, the Gamevice now works with Sphero's SPRK + programmable robot. If you've ever used a sphero spherical robot, you may already know that physical controls easily outweigh the touch variety on the screen.

Gamevice starts at $ 59.99, and still supports a range of games, including the mobile iteration of Minecraft. If you're a fan of Spark, it's definitely worth taking a look at, because it basically addresses one of the only weaknesses of the DJI drone without requiring a significant financial investment.
