[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 has unveiled today the new model in its lineup, the DJI Mavic Air. The Air will retail starting at $799, fitting nicely between the cheaper DJI Spark and the higher-end Mavic Pro.

GoPro exits the drone industry, CEO is open to selling company

GoPro has been on a steady downward slope for the past few years, at least as far as profits go. The company laid off 100 workers in January 2016 in response to weak sales. This continued in November 2016 with another 200 layoffs, followed by 270 more the following March. The situation doesn't seem to be improving, so GoPro is leaving the drone market entirely, and cutting more jobs in the process.

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.

Parrot announces the Bebop 2 Power, including two 30min batteries and new FPV goggles

While I may be more interested in the rather stunning-looking Zik wireless headphones, Parrot has also gained a reputation for making very good consumer drones, and the company has just announced an upgrade to its most premium model. The Bebop 2 Power can fly for longer than its predecessor, takes smarter photos, and now comes in a stealthy black paint job.
