If there is anything that stands out for the DJI Spark, it is its flight which is very fast and responds with the speed to all our instructions. With 40 meters maximum flight height and up to two kilometers in range, the DJI Spark really flies fast and its handling becomes a great fun. Of course, as soon as we move a little further from the range, we should be attentive to the mobile screen to see where our DJI Spark is, taking into account that the longer the delay, the longer the video reception.
The camera also works quite well during the flight and generates a video of fairly good quality. The DJI Spark generates video in 1080p resolution and takes the full advantage of the optical stabilizer to absorb the vibrations of the flight. The video is smooth and of good quality, although the rotor of the camera, that allows us to turn the objective without altering the flight of the drone, causes slight jerks. It will suffice to ask our DJI Spark to record us while not losing sight of us to appreciate the image with each correction of orientation.
Despite the bumps that can be put to DJI Spark, mainly on the software side, there is no doubt that it has become one of the first options when we talk about buying a drone for fans. Its intelligent flight modes, controlled by the gestures and the Sport mode to release all its power make it a gadget more than attractive.
To this day, it is difficult to find a drone that offers more for less in the amateur sector. The main problem of DJI Spark is that it comes unfortunately of the side of its price, and its placement in the catalog of DJI. With FullHD video quality and a battery life of 15 minutes, the Mavic Pro is positioned very close to the cost but superior in features. The Mavic Pro has a greater number of sensors with mechanical stabilizer of four axes and also with 4K recording, although the camera of the DJI Spark is superior. It is a complicated choice if we are looking for something more than a device for leisure.
In short, DJI Spark is not only the most economical device in the DJI catalog, but it is also a surprising and a fun gadget. It is difficult to find a drone that offers more for less than 1,200 euros, the price of the Mavic Pro.
