The Spark drone will fly a number of maneuvers completely automatically and responds to hand gestures.
If you have been fascinated by drones for some time, but have hesitated in acquiring one because you were concerned about you ability to learn to fly, then you can have no excuse now!
This drone can be flown without a transmitter or can be controlled with your smart phone.
DJI is a Chinese company that is the largest drone manufacturer in the World. It's sales were 1.5 billion USD in 2016 and it currently has 3.3K employees. It supplies drones and cameras for professional use and for the amateur market and is responsible for 70% of the global drone market.
The Spark Drone is it's latest offering and is causing quite a stir in the drone marketplace!
ROCKET-Ascend with camera pointing downwards
DRONIE-Fly backwards and upwards with the camera locked onto a subject
CIRCLE-Circle around a target
HELIX-Fly upward, in a spiral with the camera locked onto a subject
Spark automatically recognizes targets of different shapes and sizes and tracks them.
Just tap your mobile device screen and Spark will fly to that position, avoiding any objects and take a shot.
Deep Learning Gesture Recognition enables you to take "selfies" using simple hand motion. With Palm Control Mode you can control Spark with your hand and look like a character from "Star Wars"!
The Spark drone will not give you professional quality videos and photos but it is very easy to fly with an almost guarantee of success. The quality that is possible is perfectly acceptable to the amateur but drones costing maybe twice as much are capable of first class results.
But direct from the manufacturer and start off with just the Spark drone (Note that shipping cost is included)
You can then use the DJI app with your smart phone to fly.
Later on you may decide to buy the prop guards and even the remote controller (Available later)
