With the release of the DJI Spark today, DJI finally decided to focus a bit on a market segment it has ignored up to now, people with a lower budget. The DJI Spark is much smaller than the DJI Phantom 4 or even the DJI Mavic Pro and comes in at a lower price point. And it’s this lower price point that I think will make it more interesting for a lot of people.
And before you jump at me, I know, it is still above the budget for a lot of people but at $499 it’s far lower priced than DJI’s other quadcopters. And you still get the DJI Intelligent flight modes. Not only that, but because it’s so small the DJI Spark is super easy to take with you wherever you go.
So what exactly is this DJI Spark?
The DJI Spark is DJI’s answer to quadcopters like the Yuneec Breeze, Parrot Bebop and a lot of the selfie drones that have been released lately. Yes, it’s more expensive but for that extra money DJI offers features like a gimbal, easy cinematic shots and gesture control.
Is the DJI Spark worth the extra money? First of all, that’s a debate that will never get an answer. People will always have their favorite brands. Just like some people prefer iPhones while others prefer Android. And although I’m an Android person I do have to admit that DJI probably has some of the most user friendly quadcopters on the market.
Their intelligent flight modes make it possible to pretty much fly a quadcopter without knowing anything about it.
