The DJI Spark boasts a compact size, small enough to fit into the palm of your hands and can be maneuvered with the help of gestures. The drone can be asked to move in any direction, can be called back to the base station by forming a big Y over one’s head or even have it follow someone or yourself. The drone is about to get advanced functionality through a software update by DJI. The pilots can now start and stop video by raising their arm out at an angle of 45 degrees to the ground.
The QuickShot features are also going to get an enhancement. This will let users carry out stunning aerial stunts while recording videos.
The users will be able decide the direction in which the drone flies in the Circle and helix QuickShot modes.
Another feature stitches 21 photos together to create a 180 degrees panoramic view. The image resolution in ActiveTrack and Gesture modes has also been enhanced. Images at a resolution of 12-megapixels and 3968 x 2976 pixels can be captured.
These updates are evidence of the fact that DJI is really serious about its gesture control technology. It might get a bit tricky to remember all these gestures at one point in time. So, I believe that DJI might be thinking of giving all these gesture control updates a break after some time.
