DJI Spark Drone Release Date
The highly anticipated DJI Spark drone release date is upon us and May 24th 2017 marks DJI’s announcement of the drone and further details about it. The live announcement can be watched online at http://live.dji.com/ at 11: 30 AM EDT (16.30 PM GMT).
There is no solid information around for the new drone, but there have been a lot of leaks prior to the release. We are fairly certain the new drone spawns a new line of drone called the DJI Spark. The DJI Spark is hinted to be a smaller version of the popular Mavic Pro drone. From the official teaser video it is shown to be a very small drone, but the video from the trailer is very impressive, the video is only available at 1080p rather than 4k but that may not be related.
The fact that it is a smaller version of the Mavic Pro drone would suggest slightly reduced features, but along with that would come a reduced price tag. We speculate that it will sit somewhere below the older Phantom 3 Advanced price in more of a mainstream price range. So that would make it around £600 ($650), this is great news for people looking for a slightly more affordable Mavic Pro. Photos have been leaked of the drones body, but it is hard to know if it is a folding drone. It looks to rival the ZeroTech Dobby drone, more of a portable selfie drone. This would appeal much more to the mass market than DJI’s current lineup. We look forward to hearing more about the DJI Spark drones features and pricing.
We will be bringing more news and features on DJI’s new drone as soon as we can. In the meantime, you can watch DJI’s ‘seize the moment’ teaser trailer for the drone below.
