DJI Spark leaked – FPV Racer

UPDATE: Release Announcement Invitations are out! Check the latest leaked images of the DJI Spark. The latest DJI drone, the DJI Spark has been leaked. The drone will be even smaller than the Mavic Pro and will be more oriented towards FPV racing. It will still be able to capture smooth 4K video and even have some of the obstacle avoidance we have become used to. Everything we know about the leaked DJI Spark is available below. DJI Spark DJI filed for a trademark with the name SPARK on March 9th. Why this is important you will see in the Release Date section below. In some of the leaked information, there is a reference to not only Spark but also the codename MM1A. This could potentially also receive the name Mavic Mini or Mini Mavic, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it was indeed called the DJI Spark. We have been waiting for a drone of this size and style to be released for a while now. DJI did release their oddly named “Snail” FPV Racing motor and ESC line a few months back. We thought a tiny compact FPV or selfie drone was long overdue. Update 10: The DJI Spark Countdown! The time has come! The DJI Spark Release is around the corner. You will be able to follow along the Announcement by following this link during the Announcement: DJI Spark Announcement Update 9: Official DJI Spark Teaser released! DJI today released an official teaser video for the May 24th “Seize the Moment” Event. Check out below:   Update 8: Spark Release Invitations are out! DJI has sent out invitations for a May 24th Event in New York City. The timeline of the FCC filings, leaked images which you can check out below and the fact that the Spark wasn’t released at NAB point to an announcement at this event. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the DJI Spark release! Update 7: Further leaked DJI Spark images leaked In the image below you can for the first time get a glimpse of what the remote control for the DJI Spark will look like. At first glance, it appears very similar to the remote control of the Mavic Pro. You can see that the built-in LCD screen has been left out, most likely for cost saving reasons. The normal smartphone holders appear to fold down just as they do on the Sparks bigger brothers remote control, the Mavic Pro. Additionally visible are three batteries with the new quad contact points for the rumored charging station. The battery on the left appears to have a fake shell surrounding a harder battery enclosure,...

New DJI Inspire 2 Black leaked & other products

A new DJI Inspire 2 Black has been leaked! DJI is attending the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. They left us with the image below teasing with a new Inspire 2 Black. The conference starts on the 27th (next week), stay tuned for updates on this rumored Inspire 2 Black and other products!   Inspire 2 Pro Black One realistic possibility, based on the image above, is a new Inspire 2 Pro Black Edition. If we compare the Inspire 2 motor to the image above we see similarities.   (Inspire 2 vs leaked image of rumored Inspire 2 Black) Top and bottom motor cooling slots appear to be identical Status Indicator LED appears to be the same size without the gray dual colored finish Another Difference: The propeller doesn’t seem to feature a quick-release connection as featured on the Inspire 2 The Inspire 1 Black was released 4 months after the X5 camera was announced. This timeframe could fit for an Inspire 2 Black release. One could argue that the area just below the LED appears to be different, but this could just be a difference of the angle that the photographs were taken.   A new Matrice Drone? The change to the quick-release prop adapter is a larger difference and may be a reason that rumors of a new Matrice Platform could adopt the Inspire 2 style motors. The Matrice 100 features propellers similar to the ones in the leaked image. A new drone such as a new Matrice would be more exciting than just an Inspire 2 black but let’s see what will be announced.   A complete FPV Racer? DJI just posted a new video showcasing their FPV Racing technology “Snail“, the Takyon ESC’s and new racing propellers. Perhaps we will see a complete Drone being launched showcasing this new platform!   Don’t forget the Mobile World Congress starts next week, sign up to our newsletter below to not miss out on any...

DJI Osmo Mobile leaked – Zenmuse M1 Handheld Gimbal for your Smartphone

  UPDATE 2: The Osmo Mobile is out and available for $299. Check it out here! UPDATE: The release has been confirmed by an anonymous source! The product will most likely be called the DJI Osmo Mobile and will feature the Zenmuse M1 gimbal described below. The DJI Zenmuse M1 was just leaked! It’s a Handheld Gimbal which holds your Smartphone and is based on the Osmo series. DJI is holding an Announcement on Sept. 1st in Berlin at the IFA Show, for which they updated their Homepage with the teaser “Beyond Smart”. We now know it will be the newly leaked DJI Zenmuse M1 Gimbal. The FCC ID location clearly confirms that the Zenmuse M1 Gimbal will be for Smartphones. It will be similar to the known and tried DJI Osmo which just received a spec-bump with the DJI Osmo+ giving it a Zoom camera lens and extended battery life. The Zenmuse M1 Handheld Gimbal will be officially announced at the IFA Tradeshow in Berlin on Sept. 1st. The FCC ID clearly shows the DJI Zenmuse M1 with model id ZM01 The Handle The Handle of the Zenmuse M1 Gimbal will be the same as on the normal DJI Osmo and the newly released DJI Osmo+. It will therefore be compatible with the normal DJI Osmo Intelligent Batteries including the 980 mAh standard Osmo battery and the 1225 mAh “High Capacity” battery which comes standard on the DJI Osmo+. It also allows for compatibility with the existing accessories available for the DJI Osmo. The Zenmuse M1 Gimbal on the DJI Osmo Mobile The Gimbal will be compatible with all recent Smartphones, but most likely demo’d and illustrated with the Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Apple new iPhones releasing at the Sept. 7th Media Event will also be compatible. Of course the Android devices of choice will also work. The Smartphones will most likely need to run the DJI Go App to adjust the gimbal motors based on which phone you have attached. Additionally, you will be able to use the App to control manual controls that you have become used to on the Osmo series of cameras. Availability & Price We expect to be able to place orders the same day with shipping in 15-20 days. This makes the expected Shipment Date for the DJI Zenmuse M1 the 10th – 12th of September. As with most DJI releases the combo of the Osmo Handle with the Zenmuse M1 Gimbal will be available right away with the Gimbal separately perhaps lagging a few days behind. The rumored price for the Gimbal itself is around $199. We hope to see...
