Although the DJI Spark was made for those who don’t know much about flying drones, it could also be helpful in professional scenarios. For instance, a cinematographer working alone at a wedding or in a complicated situation might want a semi-autonomous way to capture a different angle without hiring 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,” letting users send it into the air and shoot a video with pre-defined flight paths, like circling, following, or filming 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 can use a smartphone app for flights over 100 yards away or a remote control (the Spark can fly a distance of 1.2 miles). The Intelligent Flight Modes are available with more professional DJI drones—such as TapFly and ActiveTrack—can also be found on Spark.
