This is Spark, DJI’s mini imaging drone that is, well, fun. It is small, sports a refreshing design, and it launches right from the palm of your hand. While small, Spark has all the DJI technologies you will find on regular drones like the Phantom, or perhaps, even more. It powers up simply by recognizing your face, has stable hovering capability for capturing selfie/wefie, and it can return and land on your palm when you wave at it. And oh yea, in addition to the usual control means like DJI remote controller, mobile device, and DJI Goggles, Spark can be controlled by hand movements too.

Packed inside Spark diminutive form are all the tech you’d expect from a DJI drone, including GPS/GLONASS, obstacle sensing and avoidance, one-touch return to home, two-axis mechanical gimbal stabilization, one-touch preset flight maneuvers, and interestingly, its 1/2.3” sensor-equipped camera is capable of capturing smooth panorama images, as well as sprucing up your image with shallow depth of field – a feature that’s unheard of in aerial imaging drones. It’s like iPhone 7 portrait mode, but it does it in the air and with more people in the picture.
