I’d heard that the DJI Spark was one of the smallest ‘good’ drones available which appealed to me because I travel a lot and wanted one that would be easy to transport, but I didn’t realised just how small this thing was until I had it in my hand! The measurements are just 143 x 143 x 55mm so it’s really tiny, although it’s got a good weight on it of about 300g. The small size of the DJI Spark means it’s very portable, and it’s a good choice for beginners because handling is a little bit simpler than on larger drones.

Appearance & Features

This looks like your standard 4-rotor drone, but on a smaller scale. There are a few different colour options for the body to choose from, all with black rotors. The drone feels quite robust which is good because I was worried that the folding propellers would be a bit flimsy but they actually do OK even when the weather isn’t too good. Although the Spark is small it does cram quite a lot in. It uses DJI technology so it’s very feature-rich considering its size, and does rival some of the bigger ones out there.

Control

I had tried using a larger drone in the past just as a little test and found it quite difficult, but this was much easier. I do tend to get quite overwhelmed in situations like this so I really liked that I could just step away from the controls and the drone would automatically turn into hover mode which allowed me a bit of time to focus and get to grips with things as I was learning the ropes. I’ve used the drone inside and outside with no trouble, although I’m not very confident using the gesture-type control option yet.

At the moment I prefer to control the drone directly from my phone because response time is very quick and I can see how the drone responds to my actions. When I add an extra layer in with the controller (which is a part of the Fly More bundle pack), I find that there is a small amount of lag over the WiFi.

Photo & Video

The DJI Spark has an impressive 12mp camera which is excellent, and it also has a few camera features like shallow focus and panorama which I’ve used quite a few times now. Video is 1080p, which doesn’t really sound great but the quality is actually fantastic. I honestly can’t see a difference between the quality from my Spark and the quality fro my friend’s Mavic so I’m very happy about considering the price of the Mavic! I think it helps that the Spark has the 2-axis mechanical gimbal so video is very steady to the point where you really can’t tell the difference between video shot on this and on the alternatives.

Use

DJI says the Spark has a 16 minute flight time, which is definitely less than the bigger drones which can manage 25 minutes or more. However, I will say I’ve found that 16 minutes is playing it a bit safe, and I usually get around 18-20 minutes, especially in low wind conditions. The Fly More bundle pack that I bought does come with a spare battery anyway so I am able to double the flight time without problem.

Max speed is about 30 mph but I use mine a lot slower because I found out the hard way that the sensors don’t work so well at the higher speeds so crashes are more likely (surprisingly it lived to tell the tale!). GLONASS GPS is included which I like a lot because it gives the drone a ‘return home’ feature so when I’m done taking pictures/video I can just tell it to come back rather than fiddling with the controls.

Worth It?

Definitely. I really don’t have anything bad to say about it. It’s nowhere near ‘professional’, but it’s fun, it’s compact, and it does have an impressive amount of features packed inside such a small body. The DJI Spark is a good price compared to the larger models, and would definitely suit people who like to travel and people who just want a ‘play’ drone, rather than anything more serious. It’s a very good option.

Control on the DJI Mavic Pro is excellent. As with any drone, it takes time to get the hang of things, but the lightweight body (734g) and small size (83x83x198mm) make this simple to manoeuvre.
