DJI, the well-known drone manufacturer came out with the Spark not too long ago giving people the same capabilities as any other DJI drone being sold, but in a smaller form factor. A few days ago, DJI pushed out an update to the DJI Spark giving more enhancement for flight safety and performance. This update is following a recent update back at the beginning of the month that offered more video and photo improvements including a new gesture that will start and stop recording a video and an enhancement for QuickShot video for more cinematic control.
The new update includes an enhancement to the Spark’s battery management system letting the power supply be optimized during flight time. More to the update, full support for DJI Goggles is now available, Palm Launch is more stabilized after takeoff, better controls for the QuickShot Dronie mode, and an enhancement for the remote controller when synced with a new firmware update.
The new firmware update enhances Spark’s battery management system to optimize power supply during flight. In addition, the new firmware has added support to fully integrate Spark with the DJI Goggles, optimized the PalmLaunch function for better stability after takeoff, improved the accuracy of controls under the QuickShot Dronie mode and enhanced the compatibility of the remote controller when syncing up with new firmware updates.
When you open the DJI GO 4 application while connected to WiFi or your mobile data network, the update will be available for download for the Spark and the battery. If you prefer not to do it through the application, you can always use the DJI Assistant 2 desktop client. DJI has warned people that if the update for the drone or the battery is not done before September 1st, then the Spark will not be able to take flight. DJI did this for the reason of maximizing flight safety and product reliability and top priority.
