After introducing the Mavic Pro and Spark, DJI is expected to announce a brand new drone next week. With the theme “Adventure Unfolds”, this could indicate that the new drone would come with foldable arms just like the current Mavic Pro.
The DJI Spark is a great drone for first timers but if you’re looking for something even more affordable, here comes Tello. It’s a drone by a Chinese startup called Ryze that’s powered by DJI and Intel. Not only it’s easy to fly, it even encourages kids to learn how to code.
The DJI Spark is getting more affordable in Malaysia. Just last week, we spotted an offer for a standalone Spark that’s going for as low as RM1,720. Now you can get one at an even lower price and it even comes with 6 months of extended warranty that’s worth RM300.
Looking for a drone that’s super easy to fly? The DJI Spark is a great way to get started and you don’t even need the remote to operate its basic functions. It’s even smaller than the DJI Mavic Pro, making it more practical to carry a drone around. For those who have been eyeing one for a long time, now is probably the best time to grab one as you can get an official DJI Malaysia unit at over RM500 off.
Recently, TheStar reported that the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) will be taking action against those who fly drones without a permit. In addition to the stricter enforcement, the report also claims that the DCA is planning to impose a registration fee of up to RM800 plus a renewal fee of RM500 a year. The report cited an unnamed DCA spokesperson as the source of the information.
Obviously, this caused an uproar among drone enthusiasts in Malaysia and now the DCA itself refutes what TheStar’s alledges in its report.
UPDATE: DCA issues a statement to refute TheStar’s report.
According to TheStar, The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) will be taking action on illegal drone flying in Malaysia. Apparently, if you don’t have a permit, you are not permitted to fly your drone beyond your home compound.
DJI has announced a limited edition variant of its compact Mavic Pro which comes in an all-white design. Just in time for the holiday season, the Mavic Pro Alpine White will only be available exclusively at Apple.com as well as Apple Stores in most countries.
We love our DJI Spark drone because there are lots to like about it. From stuff like its ultra-portable size, its flying prowess, image quality and even the stability of its mechanical gimbal, the Spark is a great entry-level drone.
However, if you think that DJI was able to produce something this small and affordable without at least some limitations, you’re kidding yourself. After spending some time with the Spark, here are five big things we learned that we think you should know about before you think of buying one for yourself.
Many would argue that the DJI Spark is a game-changing device as far as solid consumer video drones go and a lot of that has to do with giving the user the ability to fly the drone (in a meaningful way) purely through gestures.
However, there was always one big thing that the videography drone could not do…until now.
