DJI Says its New Spark Is the Flying Camera for Everyone

DJI has been making drones less expensive and more powerful at a remarkable rate. But even with its latest foldable drone — the Mavic Pro — the units require a serious commitment of time and money. Even just flying them starts with a pre-flight checklist.
