[Deal Alert] The DJI Spark with remote controller is $349 at B&H

When Jeff reviewed in super amazing detail the DJI Spark drone, he loved nearly everything about it from its portability to its build quality and resulting images, but two of his main concerns were related to the terrible Android app and the lack of a controller in the box. Back then, it would have cost you $499 to get the Spark alone and then $150 for the controller, which saves you from using the app a lot. Now, a mere 5 months later, both can be had in one neat bundle at B&H for $349 total. That's nearly half the price.

DJI's new Osmo Mobile 2 offers 15 hours of shooting time for $129, less than half its predecessor's price

Nobody wants to watch shakycam footage, but it's not practical to bring a dedicated video camera rig everywhere. The DJI Osmo Mobile helped solve that problem, enabling users to get incredibly smooth video out of their phones' cameras, but it was pretty pricey at $299.

DJI Spark review: A delightful little drone weighed down by an abysmally unstable Android app

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending a few days with DJI's latest and smallest drone, the Spark. The Spark is a remarkable piece of engineering. Weighing in at just 300 grams it's diminutive and dare I say, rather adorable. Everywhere I took it during our long weekend together people stopped to gawk at it, most with stupid grins on their faces. No one was intimidated by its small form or its bee swarm-like sounds, and everyone was astonished that such a small drone could fly so fast and stable and take such clear, sharp videos.

I have seldom had as much fun, or experienced as much stress, testing a new product.

DJI's $9000 pesticide-spraying agricultural octocopter now has an Android app

I would never have a use for this, but that doesn't stop me from sort of wanting one. DJI's frankly badass Agras MG-1, an agricultural-use octocopter made for spraying a liquid of your choice in a location of your choice, is now also an app-controlled beast. Whether you're a farmer spraying your field of crops with fertilizer, a scientist spraying a site with radioactive tracer for a study, a super-villain looking to deploy a mind-control chemical on the cheap, or a reclined Ryne spraying your face-hole with booze, everyone can find a way to appreciate the MG-1.
