The wait is over.  DJI has launched a new drone that works for the masses. The DJI Spark Drone.

The DJI Spark Drone is everyone’s drone; easy peasy flying camera drone that connects to your iPhone or Android.  DJI is one the premier drone manufacturers and they have been launching drones by the droves (sic) and the DJI Spark Drone is just killing the competition.

But for sure, their latest iteration the DJI Spark mini drone that will ship in June is set to be the first true mass market drone. I predict this inexpensive, just $499,  easy to use versatile camera drone  will become this  holiday seasons gift fad.

DJI Spark Mini Drone : peek at the specs

Prior to the DJI Spark drone the other drone that drew my interest was the  Yuneec Breeze drone, that was build for the quick flight with selfies as its main life purpose.

The new Spark mini drone’s body fits in the palm of your hand and is about length and width of the Samsung Galaxy S8.  Incredibly the Spark is small enough to fit inside your jacket pocket and this without the benefit of retractable propeller arms.

DJI has designed a very impressive piece of drone hardware – the DJI Spark Drone.

The DJI Spark drone camera has two axis stabilizers for smooth clean video and still photo capture.

The 12 mega pixel camera will shoot 1080P HD video at an impressive 30 frames a second.

WHY IS THE DJI SPARK DRONE FOR EVERYONE?

This is the traditional plug and play device. Unpack  it, power up and launch from the palm of your hand.  You are ready to start the drone, capture footage, and publish the footage is just minutes.

Thats it !. Wonderful, no reading manuals, understanding terms like yaw and drag. The user experience is great, intuitive gesture and remote control will make this a true fan favorite.

Now that you got the video and pictures you needed, you don’t have to rush to complicated video editing software like  Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro.

The  DJI Go mobile app is simple and will get you editing those videos and photos in a jiffy. Yeah, Mission Accomplished.

You can invest in the DJI Spark drone as your new family camera. The Spark fits into your solar backpack or your beach bag or in your jacket pocket with easy.  Its  great for those impromptu shots whether you are walking biking or just partying.

And for those of you who are looking for something slightly less expensive than the DJI Spark Drone here are a great selection of drones :
