DJI Delivers Exciting Spark Mini Drone To First Wave Of Customers
New Spark Owners Should Upgrade Firmware To Use New Feature
June 15, 2017 – DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, is delivering its exciting new Spark mini drone to the first wave of purchasers this week, with shipments arriving in stores and homes starting today.
Spark is a full-featured drone that fits in almost any bag, ready to launch within seconds to shoot 12-megapixel photos and 1080p videos stabilized with a two-axis mechanical gimbal. It packs an obstacle sensing system and automated flight modes into its soda can-sized body – and it can launch from your palm and be controlled by hand gestures alone.
New Spark owners should immediately upgrade the firmware in their drones to take advantage of important new features based on early feedback. The new firmware provides more flexibility by recognizing the selfie gesture right after launching the aircraft from the palm when most of the pilot’s body appears in the frame. Selfies can, of course, also be taken from a longer distance after waving and sending Spark away a few meters.
In addition, the firmware upgrade provides more ways to control Spark’s flight through the DJI GO 4 app on a mobile device. Based on feedback from early reviewers, the new firmware upgrade allows Spark pilots using mobile devices to smoothly adjust the maximum distance it will fly in some of the QuickShot intelligent flight modes – from 30 feet (10 meters) up to 160 feet (50 meters) in Rocket mode, 200 feet (60 meters) in Dronie and 250 feet (75 meters) in Helix mode.
New Spark pilots can also take advantage of a series of video tutorials (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL65kukZorPdNtSV_PMn1Ay4772cZMexXq) designed to provide the maximum enjoyable flight experience with Spark. The tutorials will help you to learn more about the DJI GO 4 App, the pilot experience with a mobile device, how to use gesture mode, Spark’s QuickShot options for intelligent flight modes, and much more.
