At Kommando HQ, we love a drone. With the DJI Spark, we think we have come across something that is kind of a big deal.
It’s no joke that the DJI Spark is as small as a can of soda. Measuring in at a scant 143 x 143 x 55mm and 300 grams (10.6 ounces).
The DJI Sparks other biggest hat trick is the way you can completely control it with your hands through a new feature called PalmControl. You can have the drone take off from the palm of your hand by simply facing it. From there you can wave your hands at it to take control of flying it like a Jedi moving objects with the force.
DJI has also introduced new four automatic flight maneuvers called Quickshots: Dronie for taking an aerial selfie, Helix plots an upward spiraling path, Rocket sends the drone straight into the sky with the camera looking down, and lastly, Circle has the drone rotate around the users.
Quickshots then takes your footage and automatically trims them into 10 second videos you can push to a smartphone and further edit with an accompanying DJI GO 4 app.
Aside from the new features, DJI intelligent flight modes return to the Spark including TapFly to automatically navigate to preset points. ActiveTrack, meanwhile, programs the drone to do its best to keep you in the center for the frame while avoiding obstacles as it flies...it even has a "take me home" function.
We cant wait to get our hands on the Spark, and start using it with our experiential activities.
