5. DJI SPARK
This mini drone is the most affordable compared to the models we mentioned before. Although it has many of the same features as his bigger brothers like the intelligent flight modes, the camera quality is a big difference. It has a 12 MP sensor for stills but it can’t shoot 4K but only HD. Also, the gimbal isn’t that stable because of the 2-way design. And you can’t fold the drone like the Mavic series to make it more compact.
Despite the cons of the Spark, the price and overall features make this a perfect “holiday” drone. What I mean by this is that the drone can be used by people who want to fly for fun. Or occasionally want to take an aerial photo or video of their destinations.
Also, don’t expect a great flight time and range. To summarize, this drone has a good image and video quality (so not great). And because of the price and overall features we do recommend to purchase this drone if you are on a budget and only want to fly occasionally.
Finally, we recommend buying some extra batteries or the fly more combo deals which are offered for almost every DJI model. For a few 100 dollars more you get extra batteries, propellers, and some other accessories. Have a look at the DJI store for more information and availability. Spare propellers and an extra battery are always included but from our experience, if you plan to shoot a lot of footage at a certain destination you will be happy to have 3 batteries or even more with you!
