DJI together with MSI-ECS, the official distributor of DJI products in the Philippines, unveiled its first mini drone the DJI Spark. An easy-to-use, fun-to-fly mini camera drone, the Spark can lift off from the palm of your hand to capture and share the special moments in your life on the go.
With its powerful technology, Spark is the first drone that users can control by hand gestures alone, successfully removing the barriers between you and your camera in the sky. Even if you’ve never flown a drone before, flying Spark is easy because the only remote controller you’ll need is your hand.
When Spark takes off from your hand, it automatically enters Gesture Mode. This features new advanced gesture controls like PalmControl, which lets users control Spark with hand movements. In Gesture Mode, you can also send Spark up and away from you, take a selfie, and call it back with just your hands.
It fits easily in almost any bag and weighs just 10.6 ounces (300 grams) – less than a can of soda so you can take it anywhere. Spark is ready to launch within seconds whenever inspiration strikes and can be operated by a remote controller, a mobile device, or hand gestures alone. Spark will be available in five different colors: Alpine White, Sky Blue, Meadow Green, Lava Red, and Sunrise Yellow.
- Flight Time: 16 Minutes
- Speed: 50 km/h
- Gimbal: 2-Axis
- Transmission Distance: 2 km
- VPS Range: 30 meters
- Effective Pixels: 12MP
The new QuickShot Intelligent Flight Mode will fly along a preset flight path while recording a short video and tracking a subject along the way. Four QuickShots are available: Rocket, sending Spark straight up into the air with the camera pointed down; Dronie, flying up and away from your subject; Circle, rotating around the subject; and Helix, spiraling away from a subject as it flies upward. For each QuickShot, Spark will automatically create a 10-second video from your flight that is ready to share on social media, where everyone can see your special moments.
Other Intelligent Flight Modes such as TapFly allows Spark to fly to a location you tap on your mobile device screen and ActiveTrack automatically recognize and track an object you choose, keeping it at the center of the frame for perfect shots of objects in motion.
With the remote controller accessory, operators can switch to Sport Mode and unleash Spark’s speed potential of up to 31 mph (50 kph). Sport Mode sets the gimbal to first-person view (FPV) by default, so the camera moves with you as you fly. Spark will also be compatible with DJI Goggles for an immersive FPV flight experience.
Retail price of a DJI Spark, including an aircraft, a battery, a USB charger and three pairs of propellers, is PHP 30,500. While the Spark Fly More Combo 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 PHP 42,700. Pricing and availability of other accessories for Spark will be announced at a later date.
DJI Spark is now available at MSI-ECS and other authorized dealers in the Philippines. Color options and Fly More Combo availability may vary at different sales channels.
