Although the DJI Spark was made for those who don’t know much about flying drones, it could certainly be helpful in professional scenarios too. For instance, a cinematographer working alone at a wedding or in some other busy situation might want a semi-autonomous way to capture an extra angle without having to hire an assistant. Enter the Spark.
The DJI Spark is a Top Pick selfie drone that takes off from the operator’s hand and automatically enters “Gesture Mode”, which lets users send it into the air and shoot a video with pre-defined flight paths, like circling, following, or filming from straight up.
With its gesture recognition and obstacle avoidance technology, it’s not an exaggeration to say that DJI’s Spark is probably the most user-friendly drone on the market.
If you want to fly longer distances with the Spark you have the option of using a smartphone app for flights over 100 yards away, or you can use a remote control (the Spark can fly a distance of 1.2 miles). The Intelligent Flight Modes available with more professional DJI drones—such as TapFly and ActiveTrack—can also be found on the Spark.
