It is the DJI spark. Basically a selfie drone for the masses!

Expecting it to be great... if you like taking selfies.  Perfect for the narcissistic Facebook generation.   :cool:

Talking of DJI the retail availability of the Mavic is hugely improved.  Even the flight pack bundle is becoming more easily available.  For this reason (and others) I';d guess the new Mavic will be launched between this November and next May.  That';s what I';m looking forward to (and hoping for noticeably improved camera/gimbal and 3D avoidance tech).

Wonder if all the footage was really taken with it! I see it has a 2 axis gimbal so the sideways twitch will be back! And for the UK and Europe a max distance on the controller of 500 metres. The 1. 2 mile range is for the US. Though that';s legal there either! Prefer the mavic..

Calling him a nob is really doing a great disservice  to nobs. Possibly he is a w&nk stain that was squirted up a wall and the sun hatched him out. ::) Flying an  unknown  quad next to someones face... great idea.. :rofl:

It does look compact, I like the little carry case,,,, neat !

I think they';ll fly off the shelfs  :laugh:

Is it going to be around the 600 quid price with the mavic style TX I wonder.
I';d personally  one.

I am actually very impressed with the product! Watching the reviews thus far and using the hand signals seems to function relatively well. I don';t think the price is to outrageous either when you consider just how much tech is actually packed into the little package!

One thing I just cant understand though is just why there aren';t any companies trying to make micro size gimbals with integrated camera';s. If they existed, it would completely remove my need for anything DJI.

Don';t think he cares ';too'; much about the faa as his actions are pre-determined and all the love/hate/attention/link-sharing is EXACTLY what he wants.  ;)  He';s good at acting dumb. It';s how he';s made his $$$ millions.

I';m liking the spark more since I first saw it, but a 500m range, the ';apple-style'; (overpriced) cost and the lack of better sensor tech and 3 axis gimble (quite a lot of ask, I know) puts me off. Still gonna wait for the mavic 2 before I upgrade I think.
