From the same source who has been correct on many aspects of the DJI Mavic Air, we have learned this morning that DJI may start offering a permanent discount on the DJI Spark and Spark FlyMore Combo. Supposedly a 15% discount will become effective on February 23rd.

Often discounts are offered right before a new version of a product is introduced. We have seen the same with discounts on the Mavic Pro and now with the Phantom as well.

Wi-Fi will be used for transmission, just like with the Mavic Air. New features such as Asteroid, Boomerang, and improved gesture control will be copied from the Mavic Air.

The connection between your smartphone and the remote controller will be through a USB cable instead of wireless, which should make for a better connection. The DJI Spark will also have rear-facing sensors for obstacle avoidance.

Pricing is expected to be between $499 USD to $399 USD. The mini-drone will most likely come with internal storage, similar to the Mavic Air. Read more from…
