DJI SPARK 

I began my initial experience of DJI with the Phantom 4 which was their best model and my second choice has been the Spark. There are mirrored key features, but the only real differences are the cost and size. The Spark has a 2 Axis stabilized gimbal camera that can take 12 megapixels still camera photos and 1080 frames per second video which is quite breathtaking. The radio controller with your iPhone gives you 720p video link as your viewing the elements. There is flight autonomy, which has GPS home button and flight obstacle detection (only in forward direction, so be careful not to back into objects) to protect your valuable investment. The flight autonomy system is made up of a main camera, EPS or vision positioning system, 3-D object sensing, GPS and a 24-core controller. This gives the Spark impressive hovering accuracy and stability to sensing objects up to 15 feet away and landing safely. The top speed can reach up to 31 miles per hour in Sport mode and a hearty battery of up to 16 minutes of flying time (I’d recommended having at least 1 or 2 extra batteries). While I would feel hesitant to let it go more than a mile without me seeing the Spark, it can and is capable of a 1.2-mile control range. The camera (f/2.6 aperture wide angle lens with 25mm equivalent focal length for a wide angel view) is very high performance and gives the controller impressive and amazing images with a very stable video system. Set up was simple but does require calibration (about 1 minute) with every use. As with all Remote-Control systems, there is a bit of a learning curve to heighten your control/coordination skills. The quick launch gives you a Faceaware recognition for lift off from your hand by recognizing your face and a gesture control to maneuver and take photos. There is a dual frequency consisting of a 2.4 G and a 5.8 G radio with the remote controller and Wi-Fi having consistent, no interference and accurate 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz multi option range frequencies. The cost is very affordable at around $399 for the Spark itself and $150 for the remote control. The compatibility and ease-of-use with your iPhone makes it a very affordable, user-friendly and accurate video capture system. The DJI Spark is an advanced, high performance, accurate, simple to use drone that gives you incredible footage and images in all terrains with the simple DJI Go 4 app for editing and posting.
