shooting modes along with two brand new modes:
- Pano by automatically adjusting its heading and gimbal
the Spark can shoot either horizontal or vertical panorama.
- Shallow Focus capture photos with a shallow depth of
field with the inbuilt 3D vision technology.
Intelligent flight modes
- TapFly - With the tap of a finger, you can fly in any
direction without your remote.
- ActiveTrack - Trace: track your subject from front, behind or
circle around it. Profile: Follow your target from a fixed perspective

The Spark can be used as an FPV craft by simply switching to
sport mode. The gimbal will move the camera with as you fly and the experience
can be further enhanced through the use of DJI Goggles.
Precision Flight Autonomy
As with any of the new DJI craft, there is an impressive array
of technology to enhance the crafts awareness to its flying environment. The
Spark is no different. The FlightAutonomy system includes a 3D sensing system,
high-precision inertial measurement unit, vision positioning system (VPS), dual
band GPS, and, 24 powerful computing cores. With VPS assistance you will be able
to hover your Spark with accurate precision at up to 30m in height and obstacles
will be sensed from up to 5m away.
Be informed of where you can fly
Knowing where you can legally fly your drone is important given
the larger numbers in the air these days and stricter safety precautions being
enforced. The GEO system from DJI will inform you where flying your Spark will
raise security/safety concerns ie: airports, stadiums and enable you to be a
responsible drone flyer.
