The new Spark drone is being pitched by DJI as "the easy and fun camera drone for everyone" and features the ability to launch the drone from your hand and control its movements through Gesture Mode. Hand gestures can be used to control the Spark, while hand motions enable the user to click selfies.
Once in the air, the drone is programmed to recognise gestures you make with your hands, meaning that you can get the drone to hover in place, send it away, recall it, get it to take a selfie and make it land again using just your hands.
Using your smartphone, you can receive a live feed from the Spark's camera, and control it out to distances of 100 yards; use the optional remote control, and you can fly the drone up to 1.2 miles away. You can choose between Alpine White, Sky Blue, Meadow Green, Sunrise Yellow and cinema5D Red.
Apart from PalmControl, DJI Spark comes with Quickshot feature, which creates 10-second video from flight to easily share on social media. The Spark also features four Intelligent Flight Modes that are similar to those already available the Mavic Pro and the Phantom 4. Controlling a drone with hand gestures is something which has just come up as a nascent technology.
If users don't know how to fly a drone, a mode called TapFly - coordinate allows the drone to fly to a location the user taps on their mobile device screen.
Casey Neistat got his hands on one (of course) and gives a pretty great rundown of what the Spark can do in this video.

In a splashy reveal at Grand Central Station on Wednesday, DJI announced the Spark, a pint-sized camera drone that's been rumoured for weeks. You can also switch into Sport mode where the Spark will fly at up to 31mph. Spark will also be compatible with DJI Goggles for an immersive FPV flight experience.
The shipping of the drone has been estimated to start from June 15 in the United States and each user can only purchase a maximum of two units due to limited availability. But, there's also the Spark Fly More Combo, which includes two batteries, four pairs of propellers, a remote controller, propeller guards, a charging hub, a shoulder bag and all necessary cables, for$699 Dollars. Whether you are using TapFly or tracking a subject, Spark's 3D Sensing System will actively sense obstacles in front of the aircraft.
