One day I was taking a hike through a dense forest in Japan. The forest was the site of a little known battle in which a Young Samurai around age 14 led an army and won. The DJI Spark would be great because its small and easy to maneuver through the trees and narrow paths. Now keep in mind I carry a sling bag that house both my Mavic and my spark. Due to the muddy and narrow paths in the forest I figured the only way to deploy my Spark would be to hand launch and catch it. However I quickly ran into a problem. 1) I had to unsling my bag pull out the controller and my phone. Then once I had the controller and phone connected I had to pull out the spark. Once I finished filming a shot I had to put away the Spark, the controller, the phone. I repeated this several times and it got old. So I developed the above Rapid deployment System. Its a tool to save you time and the cumbersome of deploying your Spark. It can work with other mini drones as well. I printed it with Semi Flex so to avoid scratching up my Dope New Skins. There is room for improvement I'm sure and its a work in progress. But again its just another tool and I hope you will find useful. https://youtu.be/cGRAirj1pzc

I used Semi-Flex to avoid scratching or scaring the drone skins. Also makes it easier to transport. You may find other Fillaments that work better. Does not have to be 100% but I made the brackets thicker and needed some stiffness to hold the spark secure.

I don't have a use for this, but I love to see new ideas like this! Great work!

Updated file made the arms a bit thicker and taller.

I would Like to add... It is designed to hold the Spark with the Underside facing outward!
