What To Expect From DJI Mavic 2 And Phantom 5 After Meeting The Spark

The DJI Spark Drone is the company’s latest drone, which is also their cheapest and smallest one yet. This new drone has garnered interest from not just ardent DJI fans who look for great drone features, but also beginner fliers due to its more affordable, portable, easily controllable and feature rich design.

Seeing the new technologies that the Spark has over the previous DJI Mavic Pro, we can only imagine the advanced capabilities that the future and upcoming drones will come with. The two drones most likely to be released by the leading drone and quadcopter manufacturing company are the Mavic 2 and the Phantom 5. There are already a lot of rumors about the Mavic 2 and the Phantom 5 doing the rounds on the Internet.

DJI Mavic 2 And Phantom 5 features

DJI has been a leader in creating new technologies for its drones, and with the Spark too it didn’t fall behind, delivering a drone that is cheaper than the previous but comes with new capabilities.

DJI Spark Drone

New flight modes

It features new flight modes that make using the drone so much simpler and convenient. A new addition is the QuickShot, which lets users take videos with just a tap. Take footage with cinematic composition with modes like Rocket, Dronie, Circle and Helix.

Another feature is FaceAware that allows for quick launching. The Spark can recognize your face and then within seconds just lift off from your palm to hover in place.

With these new additions, it only makes sense for DJI to use these features in their next drones as well while adding a couple of newer ones!

3D Sensing System

The Spark’s 3D Sensing System can be used to sense obstacles with diffuse reflective surfaces like trees, walls, and people. It is capable of avoiding obstacles that are up to 16 ft. in front of the drone but using the 3D sensor system users can also take pictures that have a shallow depth of field.

This sensing system may even be the reason that the Spark is able to understand and execute controls like the new palm gestures and facial recognition.

With such technology in the Mavic 2 and Phantom 5 flight features, flying the two will be something that both beginners and advanced fliers can do with ease, and execute a number of actions.

Gesture Control

The DJI Spark’s really cool Gesture Mode lets you conveniently take a selfie by making a particular gesture when the drone is pointing at you. Take a selfie by just raising your arms, waving your hand or making a frame with your fingers.

With this hands-free approach, recording yourself or taking pictures without having to worry about whether you are even properly focused in the frame or not, is possible. Hopefully, the Mavic 2 and Phantom 5 will only increase the number of gestures the DJI drones can understand.

A variety of colors

Since the Spark was available in a number of cool and bright colors, there is a possibility DJI will offer future drones with color options as well. It will be nice to own a DJI drone that isn’t your basic white or gray!

There are no official Mavic 2 and Phantom 5 features released by the company yet, and even the Mavic 2 and Phantom 5 release date isn’t decided, but we will keep you updated here.
