DJI Spark Highlight Features

Quick Launch

With FaceAware, Spark lifts off from your hand by recognizing your face.¹ It takes off and hovers in place within seconds of powering on.

Simple Control

Take amazing aerial photos using just hand gestures, without a remote controller or mobile device.¹

Create with Ease

Intelligent Flight Modes and intuitive controls help you create cinematic aerial videos with just a few taps.

Edit and Share

The DJI GO 4 app features automatic editing templates and an array of filters. Quickly edit videos and share them straight to social media.

Intelligent Flight Modes

QuickShot — Videos with a Tap

Let Spark take professional shots for you. QuickShots help you shoot amazing footage with cinematic composition.

  • Rocket: Ascend with the camera pointing downward.
  • Dronie: Fly backward and upward, with the camera locked on your subject.
  • Circle: Circle around your target.
  • Helix: Fly upward, spiraling around your subject.

TapFly Flight at Your Fingertips

In TapFly mode, just envision your shot and Spark captures it for you. Tap your phone screen and Spark, using vision technology, flies in the direction where your tap or exactly the spot you tapped while actively sensing obstacles. Capture shot after shot with just your fingertips.

TapFly — Stay on Target

With ActiveTrack, Spark automatically recognizes objects of different shapes and sizes, then tracks them according to what they are and how fast they move. This makes tracking much easier and more reliable. You can track your target from in front or behind, or even circle around it, or just follow your subject from a fixed perspective.

Advanced Gesture Control — Your Moments, Captured

Deep learning gesture recognition allows you to take dronies with simple hand motions. With PalmControl mode, control Spark’s movement by hand. If you want, leave your remote controller and phone at home. Raise your arms, wave your hand, or make a frame with your fingers to maneuver Spark and shoot photos.

Multiple Shooting Modes — Versatile Photography

Spark adopts all previous DJI drone shooting modes while adding two new modes: Pano and ShallowFocus.


Spark shoots horizontal or vertical panoramas by automatically adjusting its gimbal and heading.


Spark uses its 3D vision technology to create photos with a shallow depth of field.

Flight Performance — Awesome Potential, Immersive Experience

Powerful Propulsion

Speed and Precision Control

With its aerodynamic, lightweight, and slick design, Spark soars through the air with minimal wind resistance. The gimbal and camera are flush with the aircraft, significantly increasing stability. Powerful propulsion offers steady flight in strong winds at up to 31 mph (50 kph) in Sport Mode.² An advanced flight control system means flying is fun and intuitive.

HD Wi-Fi Video Transmission

Fly Farther, See More

Innovative HD Wi-Fi technology allows for 720p real-time video transmission from up to 1.2 mi (2 km) away.³

Stay in the Air

Uncompromised Flight Time

Even with all of Spark’s intelligent features, flight time isn’t compromised. Fly for up to 16 minutes with a fully-charged battery, capturing more footage.⁴

FPV Flight

Aerial Immersion
Switch to Sport mode and unleash Spark’s speed potential. Sport mode sets the gimbal mode to FPV by default, so the camera moves with you as you fly. For an upgraded FPV experience, pick up a pair of DJI Goggles and see a different world.⁵

Flight Safety — Worry-Free Flight


Enhanced Awareness

Spark’s FlightAutonomy system includes the main camera, vision positioning system (VPS), 3D sensing system, dual-band GPS, high-precision inertial measurement unit, and 24 powerful computing cores. This allows Spark to hover accurately anywhere with VPS assistance at up to 98 ft (30 m), sense obstacles from up to 16 ft (5 m) away, and land safely.

Return to Home

Safely Fly Back

Like all recent DJI drones, Spark can return to its home point automatically with sufficient GPS signal. If the battery gets too low, the connection is lost, or you hit the Return to Home (RTH) button, Spark flies back to the preset home point while sensing obstacles in its path. Spark’s downward-facing camera captures images of the area surrounding home point and references these images during RTH for a safe landing.

Flight Protection

Fly Smarter
DJI’s GEO system lets you know where drone flights may raise safety or security concerns, such as near airports or stadiums. This provides the information needed to fly Spark safely and responsibly.

Discover Endless Possibilities with DJI Spark

  1. Propeller guards are recommended when using these functions.
  2. Remote controller (optional accessory) required.
  3. Unobstructed, free of interference, with remote controller when FCC compliant.
  4. Estimated flight time is based on flying in windless conditions at a constant speed of 12.4 mph (20 kph). Actual flight times may vary depending on your environment.
