DJI has been releasing impressive drones at a break-neck pace, and they’re planning on releasing yet another new model on Wednesday. This one, according to several reports and this teaser video, is going to be their smallest, most portable drone yet.
The official announcement is scheduled for Wednesday, May 24th, at 11:30AM Eastern time, and DJI is already building serious hype with a teaser video packed full of intriguing footage. In addition to the high flying shots you’ve come to expect from DJI, there’s close-quarter footage that seems to hint at just how small and nimble this little drone will be.
Even the Mavic, for all its portability, couldn’t fly through tiny spaces like this comfortably:
According to some UAV rumor sites, this teensy Mavic-mini will be called the DJI Spark, and it’ll look almost exactly like a Mavic made tiny. The idea, from what we can tell, is to create a drone so small and portable you could carry it around comfortably in a backpack.
Of course, all of this is speculation until the official announcement, but we don’t have long to wait. Just under 2 days left before DJI lets this portable drone out of its tiny bag.
