DJI Spark


DJI Spark review: DJI's gesture-controlled drone is incredibly fun to fly with lots of automated modes that make it a great first advanced drone.

Small, lightweight build ; Intelligent flight modes ; Easy to fly ; Good image quality

Expensive in the UK ; Gesture mode is a little unreliable ; Battery life is short and extras are pricey

An incredibly fun advanced drone with some seriously clever modes for dramatic footage

DJI Spark review: The tiny drone that makes you feel like a Jedi


The simple fact is that the Spark really has no competition right now. There's nothing equipped with the same number of high-end features as the DJI

Almost impossibly small ; Lots of smart sensor technology

Limited battery life stops it from being serious film drone ; Gestures aren't reliable yet

There are plenty of small drones out there, but almost all of them are essentially toys and couldn't be considered as portable, high-end flying cameras. The Spark, on the other hand, could be. Not to Hollywood movie levels, but it's still highly...

DJI Spark review


Didn't think you wanted a drone? You do now...

Excellent auto-flying modes ; Incredibly small and light ; Crisp and colourful HD video ; Manual options for levelling up

Battery life means you need spares ; Noisy at low altitude ; Expensive, particularly in the UK

A perfect beginner's drone, the Spark has flown down from gadget heaven

DJI Spark review


A mini drone your parents can fly

Controller-free gesture controls ; Absolutely tiny ; Automatic Quickshot modes

Spotty Wi-Fi connection with smartphones ; Short flight time ; Easily swayed by the wind

No larger or heavier than a can of soda, the DJI Spark is the portable drone you’ve been waiting for. Its automatic flight capabilities and ability to recognize hand gestures outshine its few problems.

DJI Spark review


A review of the DJI Spark, which raises the bar again for consumer drones. You can almost fit this one in your pocket but it's as smart as the best.

The DJI Spark may not offer the best photo or video quality, but as a package it's one of the best you can buy under £700. It's so small it will fit in practically any bag, it's easy to use and it has features - such as object tracking and obsctable...

DJI Spark review: DJI's compact drone is fantastic fun to fly


DJI's compact, follow-me drone is packed with tech, but it's not all about the gimmicks

The Spark is a bit of a mishmash. On the one hand, it’s a highly capable drone capable of capturing top-quality aerial video and photos. It flies well, it’s packed with features and it’s incredibly compact for a drone that packs in so many serious...

DJI Spark Fly More Combo review

  (Rating Hidden)

The DJI Spark Fly More Combo is a small and light drone, making it easy to carry from place to place. But does it hold its own against a gust of wind, is it easy to manoeuvre, and does it take good photos and videos? Check out our full review to find...

DJI Spark


The Spark may be one of DJI's cheaper drones, but a relatively short flight time may leave hobbyists wanting more.

Compact and lightweight design; Well priced; Great photo taking

Short flight time; Can get shaky during windy conditions

Goondu review: DJI Spark punches above its weight June 22nd, 2017 | by Wilson Wong Imaging 0 DJI Spark drone. PHOTO: Handout


For what the DJi Spark is designed to do, it is punching way above its weight class.

DJI's Spark drone is tiny and fast, but will leave you wanting more


Small, smart, but not perfect.

Excellent design. ; Filled with intelligence. ; Affordable ; Good camera ; QuickShots simplifies complex flight plans

Flight time too short ; Software hides key features ; Panorama and shallow focus need work ; Base price should include propeller guards ; Quickshots needs refinement to keep the drone from flying too far away.

The DJI Spark drone has so many things going for it, but it needs longer flight time, a better base package, and software polish before we can recommend it.
