DJI Spark – A drone review with more features than a Swiss Army knife

Last month, during a press conference in New York, DJI lifted the veil of secrecy over its latest pint-sized drone, the DJI Spark.

The DJI Spark is the company’s smallest drone, so I didn’t miss the opportunity to test it out. Here’s what came out of it.

Many features for a small DJI Spark

If DJI has one thing that’s good, it’s the ability to stuff it with a lot of functionality. In a body the size of a Twinkie, DJI has managed to cram features into it that are under the hood of large, bulky, and expensive brethren.

In addition to its tiny and ultra-portable design, the DJI Spark has a variety of flight modes. In addition to the standard features, the quadcopter comes with a handful of new modes, including Rocket, Dronie, Circle and Helix. Spark owns the basics of gesture recognition, which allows you to control it without a smartphone or controller.

Another big addition is the collision avoidance system. The feature to detect and avoid objects while in flight is typically found only in large devices, DJI has gone ahead and built the option into Spark. Of course, it doesn’t work like it does on the Phantom 4 or the Mavic Pro, but it serves the purpose of helping to avoid accidents.

We should also mention the camera. In addition to a 12-megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p video at 30 frames per second, the DJI Spark features a dual-axis gimbal. This allows the camera to be mechanically stabilized, preventing any jerky, wobbly movements, resulting in smoother, more beautiful footage. It should be noted that most drones have only uniaxial mechanical stabilization.

Strong, colorful, small

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: DJI makes some of the most durable, well-designed drones out there – the Spark is no exception. In fact, this is one of the company’s sturdiest drones. With short arms, no legs, and a hidden camera, there aren’t many parts that could be broken in the event of a crash. Likely breakage when falling – racks, they are inexpensive and easily replaced. In general, DJI Spark is one of the most enduring quadcopters, the build quality is at the highest level.
