Take to the skies With the DJI Spark Drone in Alpine White. If you know anything about drones then the name DJI should need no introduction. For those of you that don’t, here is a very brief intro. DJI have basically set the standard for everyone else to follow, with incredible features that literally take drone flying to new heights. The DJI Spark is one of their more affordable quadcopters. Yes, the price is still a considerable purchase, however when you realise all the features that have been crammed into this device you’ll understand why we were so excited to add it to our range.
Easy to Fly – including gesture control
When you are spending a little extra on a drone like this you’ll want to know you’ll be able to fly it. The Spark has been designed with various control metods. There is the remote control for seasoned flyers, who’ve had a drone before and want to take command themselves. There are also amazing gesture controls where you can launch, beckon, move, take quick snaps, and land, all by simply moving your hand. Facial recognition keeps the drone locked on to you, so very little user input is needed at all! You can even control the Spark via your phone thanks to the free DJI app. Jaw-dropping cinematic aerial footage can be taken in just a few taps! In short, DJI have taken time to make sure the Spark is accessible to anyone, regardless of previous drone flying experience. The Spark has in-built return to home functionality (RTH) which means it will safely navigate back to a pre-determined location if it ever loses connection, the battery gets too low, or you simply want it back with minimal fuss.
To see the footage for yourself we recommend you check out the video above. But why is it so good? Well, a mechanical gimbal smooths out video footage and stabilises still shots meaning your footage and photos are only limited by your imagination. The camera is located on a 2-axis gimbal, which can all be controlled remotely, and all this means you get the footage you really want at the first time of flying. DJI have been perfecting their lenses for years, how they capture colour, how they compensate for turbulence and remove shake from whatever you shoot. The results are images that speak for themselves! DJI also have a free downloadable app with automatic editing templates and many filters to give whatever you capture an artistic edge. All this can be shot and edited quickly then instantly uploaded to social media.
Intelligent obstacle avoidance
No matter how good a flyer you think you are, a moment’s lapse in concentration or over-cockiness, and bam, broken drone. So, you’ll be pleased to hear there is a multitude of features in the Spark that mean collisions should be a thing of the past. Spark’s Flight Autonomy combines a vision positioning system (VPS), 3D sensing system (obstacle avoidance), dual band GPS, and 24 powerful computing cores to detect and avoid any mishaps from happening. In other words, it takes the fear out of flying and puts the fun back in! With great power comes great responsibility! And with a drone that is capable of soaring to dizzying heights we recognise the need to fly your drone responsibly, and so do DJI. Their GEO system lets you know where drone flights may raise safety or security concerns, such as near stadiums or airports, putting your mind at rest and leaving you to enjoy everything this high-end drone has to offer.
So, if you are looking for a drone to capture unbelievable images and video, a drone that you can easily take with you when out on the go, and a drone that utilises intuitive controls that beginners can master in no time, then we fully recommend the DJI Spark!
