The latest drone innovation from DJI might not be what you expect. DJI has introduced the Spark drone, which is not only relatively small, it’s the size of a soda can, it’s also starts at a relatively inexpensive at $500. Want to make this thing even cooler? The DJI Spark drone can be controlled using hand gestures. Not bad DJI.
There’s a new drone on the market that’s the size of a can of Coca-Cola and can be controlled using one’s hand’s gestures.
China-based DJI, the world’s biggest drone manufacturer, unveiled Wednesday its new Spark drone, a small flying quadcopter that weighs a little less than one pound and costs $500.
The Spark drone is DJI’s cheapest drone yet compared to the company’s other models like the Phantom 4 Pro and the Mavic Pro, which cost $1,500 and $1,000, respectively.
I think Drone World summarized it well:
DJI has fashioned the Spark with a high quality camera, 16 minutes of flight time, and innovative gesture controls. The Spark is so small, it actually makes the Mavic Pro look big by comparison – a drone widely praised for its compact size.
While the Spark isn’t as capable as the Mavic, it’s definitely worth your consideration if you are in the market for your first drone.
