Woaah that was insane done called DJI SPARK. In this article lets check out how Tiny this drone is and some specs. ‘DJI Spark‘ is not just the cheapest drone made by the company but also its most compact one yet. With a starting price of just Rs. 43,000 ($499 in the US) in India. This is the most lastest and greatest drone ever. This DJI spark drone weighs just around 300 grams and is comparable to a soda can in terms of size. Also this DJI spark drone was reviewed by NDTV.com

Spark has a maximum flight time of up to 16 minutes, is capable of recording 1080p videos, and comes with a 12-megapixel sensor for taking still images. “Spark’s 2-axis mechanical gimbal and UltraSmooth technology dramatically reduce shake and rolling shutter effect to capture cinematic shots effortlessly,” the company said in its release.

“Controlling a camera drone with hand movements alone is a major step towards making aerial technology an intuitive part of everyone’s daily life, from work and adventure to moments with friends and family,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Manager at DJI. In case you don’t prefer hand movements, you can always choose to control the drone with your smartphone. By far the coolest Spark feature is its gesture-controlled flight mode, allowing you to send the drone overhead to take an aerial photo of you and your buds with just simple hand movements. The camera spots you, then the Spark springs to life and starts hovering. From there, gestures take over. Hold up a palm and move it side to side, and the Spark follows your hand. Wave at it, and it flies 10 feet away, keeping you centered in the shot.
Size matters. A one-pound drone just seven or eight inches across is something you can toss into your backpack without a second thought. DJI’s next-biggest flyer is the $1,000 Mavic drone that folds up; also small, but not this small. Yuneec has the similarly-priced (but still bigger) Breezedrone, and GoPro entered the market last year with its own folding drone, the $800 Karma. But all of those require some sort of remote control, not to mention some expertise. With the Spark, ease-of-use is taken to the extreme.
Apart from the main camera, the DJI Spark comes with a downward-facing vision system, a forward-facing 3D Sensing System, dual-band GPS and GLONASS, a high-precision inertial measurement unit, and 24 powerful computing cores, as per the company.
The standard DJI Spark kit will include an aircraft, a battery, a USB charger and three pairs of propellers. Users can also choose to get their hands on the Spark Fly More Combo, which includes an aircraft, two batteries, four pairs of propellers, a remote controller, propeller guards, a charging hub, a shoulder bag and all necessary cables, with a retail price of Rs. 60,000.
