DJI getting ready to launch the SPARK quadcopter

Postby sidd finch » Fri Apr 07, 2017 3:47 pm


DJI appears to be about to launch a drone even smaller than the Mavic Pro. Supposedly called the Spark, pics of the little drone has been popping up on several sites though DJI has yet to officially announce it.

First, the Spark is smaller than the Mavic Pro when the Mavic’s prop arms are extended. The Spark appears to have fixed arms and brushless motors similar to the Mavic’s just slightly smaller. The bottom of the drone seems to have downward-facing sensors, likely to assist in positioning. There’s also a panel on the front above the camera that could hide additional sensors so the Spark might have the ability to avoid obstacles.

The camera is mounted on a gimbal that looks a bit different from the one used on the Mavic. On the Spark, the camera appears to be only able to tilt up and down. Panning side-to-side could require the drone to rotate. The camera’s specs are unknown.
